Summer in the Philippines meant children's long months of vacation faced with scorching heat, humidity . Urban kids play outside their houses during the afternoon when the sun's heat toned down a bit. Rough playing makes these kids hungry and thirsty and runs at the nearest BBQ/fishball/hotdog "turo-turo" within the neighborhood. Therefore, our child had an idea of selling ice candy (ice block) to her kalaro (playmates.) Every summer when I have free time, I make her ice-candy on sticks or in shaped-container for the whole family. This time, since we loved to eat Melona from a Korean store a few blocks away, we bought Melona's 4 for Php100 every week and makes us want to try a different summer refreshment. So we thought of making another all-time Pinoy fave halo-halo instead of always hopping in the mall for the pricey halo-halo, we prepared and cooked the yummy ingredients of traditional halo-halo. We have it in the house 24/7, anytime of the day when our cravings strikes back we "kaskas yelo" (shaved ice) and then put on a show. :)
1 medium-sized Avocado (ripened)
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups fresh milk
4 cups mineral water
ice candy bags (1.5" x 10")
1. In a bowl sliced and mashed avocado
2. Blend in milk and mineral water, sweetened with sugar. You may add more the sugar according to your taste)
3. Stir evenly and pack in the ice candy bags. Wash the finished ice candies and freeze overnight until frozen.
This ice candy recipe is all natural and does not use any food coloring and instant flavoring. The ratio of water and milk is 2:1 thus making it creamy unlike the commercial blends that uses liters of water, concentrated flavoring and cornstarch to yield enough number of ice candies.
