  • 1 cup crushed or shaved ice
  • ¼ cup milk fresh or evaporated
  • 1 teaspoon sugar if needed
  • 1 teaspoon sweetened saba or plantain bananas
  • 1 teaspoon sweetened sweet potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon sweetened red munggo
  • 1 teaspoon sweetened garbanzos (chickpeas) or beans
  • 1 teaspoon fresh of sweetened langka jack fruit
  • 1 teaspoon coconut strips or sweetened macapuno
  • 1 teaspoon nata de coco coconut gel
  • 1 teaspoon sago or tapioca pearls or jelly cut into cubes
  • 1 tablespoon leche flan topping
  • 1 tablespoon ube jam or 1 scoop of ube ice cream topping


  • In a tall glass, add a teaspoon of each of your selected ingredients.
  • Add sugar if you like. Personally, I find that the other ingredients are sweet enough so I do not any more sugar.
  • Fill the glass with shaved ice up to the brim. Push it down and add some more. 
  • Drizzle with milk. 
  • Add the toppings of choice.
  • Serve with a long spoon for mixing (‘halo’) and enjoy.
