What is Black Sambo?

Black Sambo is a dessert made of double-layered gelatin of chocolate and milk flavor. It is a dessert popular in the Philippines. Very easy to make and requires simple ingredients, mainly gelatin, cocoa powder, milk, cream, and sugar or condensed milk.

After posting this recipe, I received a comment or two about the supposably offensive nature of the name of this dessert (mainly in the US). We tried to explain that we did not invent this dessert and has nothing to do with naming it. In the Philippines, the words “black sambo” has no derogatory meaning. Far from our desire to be called a racist, we decided to change the name of the post. Please also believe that we have no ill intentions and will never dream of hurting anyone’s feelings. It is such a delicious and lovely dessert, and for us, that is what is important.

How to make Chocolate and Milk Jelly Pudding Dessert?

The dessert is made layer by layer, of chocolate and milk flavored gelatin. Which one first is entirely up to you. The process can vary depending on the kind or brand of gelatin you are using.

WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE BLACK SAMBO:

  • 1 can (370ml) evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 250ml cream
  • 250ml sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 cups of water
  • 2 teaspoons (level) jelly powder

This recipe uses unsweetened, unflavored, white powdered jelly. One pouch (25grams) of it is good for 6 cups of water normally. But you will not use the whole pouch or else it will become too firm and they the layers will not stick together.
