“STRESSED when spelled backwards is equals to DESSERTS.”
If you have a sweet tooth like me, you will always crave for something that is really delicious and sweet. Filipino desserts always satisfy my cravings and for sure it can and it will satisfy your cravings as well. What makes Filipino desserts a bit different to other countries and nationalities desserts is that, Filipino dessert recipes are not too sweet for my tastebuds. Below are some of my favorite Pinoy desserts that you should try as well.
Buko salad dessert recipe is usually served out of a young green coconut shell. This Filipino dessert is best served cold after eating lunch. Buko salad can go along with other fruits such as mango, banana, kiwi fruit and dragon fruit. The mixture of condensed milk and cream makes this recipe more tastier and cremier.
Leche flan is a favorite and popular dessert in the Philippines. It is similar to a cream caramel. There are many variations in making leche flan, but the classic recipe only calls for eggyolk, sugar, evaporated milk, condensed milk and citrus flavourings. Steaming is the traditional method for cooking leche flan over moderate heat until set.
Halo halo is one of my favorites. There are many kinds and variations of Halo Halo nowadays. Halo Halo is a traditional Filipino dessert consisting of blend of fruits, sweet preserves, evaporated milk, and shaved ice. It is frequently topped with a scoop of ice cream and leche flan as well. Halo Halo literally means “Mix-Mix” (mixed ingredients).
The above desserts are only three of the many Filipino desserts you may try and taste. Hope you like it and hoping someday you will try it.
