2-in-1 | Saba and Mais con Hielo

Thursday, July 10, 2014

I know it's rainy and everything but it's Throwback Thursday as well!

One thing we'll never miss every summer are those cold treats that helped us stay refreshed during the season's scorching heat.

However, I'm not really into Halo-Halo for the reason that I don't like almost half of the ingredients - munggo, white beans, kaong, nata de coco, and macapuno. So I'm always a big fan of Mais and Saba or Saging con Hielo. But then, because of the summer heat, 1 serving is not enough for me and that means I have to spend Php 50-60 everyday just to have a yummy cool refreshment-slash-dessert.

Thankfully, me & my mom went for a quick trip to Divisoria and found a hand-held ice shaver - just like when I was a kid where my mom used to do a mano y mano with the ice using the hand-held shaver. For some reason, it's durable compared to manual shaver (at least as to what we have experienced). 

Anyway, enjoy my favorite cool summer treat!

Saba and Mais con Hielo

Whole Corn Kernel in can
Minatamis na Saging
Evaporated Milk
Shaved Ice
Langka or Jackfruit Jam (optional, but it really adds flavor)

In a glass or bowl, combine whole kernel, minatamis na saging, sugar, and langka. Pour a little bit of evaporated milk to dissolve the sugar. Fill the glass/bowl with shaved ice. Pour the milk on the ice and drizzle it with minatamis na saging's syrup for added aroma because of the vanilla used to cook it. Top it with pinipig and ENJOY! :)
