Maíz con hielo (literally "corn with ice" in Spanish, also commonly spelled mais kon-yelo in Filipino) is a sweet and refreshing snack food in the Philippines.[1]


Maíz con hielo is a mixture of shaved ice, corn kernels, sugar and milk.[1] Usually popular in the summer months,[2] it is a variation of the more renowned halo-halo.[3]


The dessert is prepared by adding shaved ice to a glass then pouring evaporated milk on top of the ice. It is then topped off with cream corn and sugar. Vanilla ice cream can also be added on top if desired. It is also stirred before eating.
