Some of he common ingredient used to make Halo-halo are sugar palm (kaong), boiled kidney beans, flat rice crisps (pinipig), coconut gel (nata de coco), ripe jackfruit, colored gelatin, tapioca pearls, sweetened plantains, and macapuno.
The ingredients are placed in a tall glass with a few teaspoons of sugar. Shaved ice is added after all the components are in place. Special Halo-halo is topped with leche flan and ube halaya sometimes ice cream is added. Evaporated milk is poured on top for the finale.
Halo-halo is eaten using a spoon. Before eating, all the ingredients need to be distributed evenly . This is done by gently stirring the mixture using the spoon. It is quite challenging at first because the shaved ice gets on the way. Stirring eventually becomes easier when the ice starts to melt.
The name Halo-halo was derived from the Filipino word halo, which means to mix. It is pretty much obvious how this delightful dessert got its name.
This dessert is very popular during summer. Vendors often sell Halo-halo in the side-streets. The ingredients are kept in glass jars and placed on top of a small wooden or plastic table.
There are also restaurants and fast food establishments that made Halo-halo part of their menu. Chowking, a famous fast food restaurant, offers this dessert whole year round. My favorite Halo-halo is definitely from Razons. The Halo-halo that these guys make are irresistible.
