Filipino Ice Candy (Frozen Fruit Smoothie)

Nowadays, my 6-year old daughter is interested in anything Filipino. She asked why she wasn’t born in ‘Sabu’ (Cebu).

She now takes pleasure in sinigang soup and rice. She eagerly volunteered to assist me with my ice candy experiment — another familiarisation activity with anything Filipino. To a child, ice + candy = candy and ice? She was confused when she saw the ingredients on the table but was excited to see another consistent Filipino dessert necessity: condensed milk. She got the picture when I explained that the ice candy is a frozen fruit smoothie — fruits, fresh milk, condensed milk, honey.

The wet season build up is obviously here which means the air is hot and steamy and the ice candy is the perfect remedy now that the humidity level is starting to rise. Well it may not be obvious but the hot weather is just another justification for me to go back to my childhood during summer days.

Ice candy flavours; calamansi, mango, munggo (boiled mung beans), and nangka (jack fruit)
