How to Make Halo-Halo

Halo-Halo Filipino Dessert

Halo-Halo is the national ice-cold dessert of the Filipinos during the hot summer days in the Philippines. The country’s summer season starts from March until May. Halo is a Filipino word which means “mix’.




  1. Combine kaong (sweet palm fruit), macapuno (shredded coconut), langka (jackfruit) and red munggo (mung beans) in a parfait glass.
  2. Other possible ingredients are slices of saba (plantains), chunks of (corn), nata de coco (coconut gelatin) and pinipig (pounded dried rice).
  3. Top with shaved ice, evaporated milk and a scoop of ice cream.
  4. Make sure to halo (mix) thoroughly before digging in. Yes, mixing all those goodies at the bottom without spilling the ice and ice cream off the glass is a skill that needs to be honed by regular indulgence!
