Matcha Halo-Halo

This matcha version of the refreshing Filipino dessert Halo-Halo will satisfy your sweet cravings and your matcha cravings! Layers of fun mix-ins like sweet red beans, coconut gel, and jackfruit...

Halo-halo is a popular dessert in the Philippines. It’s a cold treat layered with fruits, sweetened beans, shaved ice drizzled with evaporated milk, and topped with ice cream. Halo-halo in Filipino actually means “mix-mix”!


WHAT MIX-INS CAN I USE FOR HALO-HALO?

 

Popular ingredients in halo-halo include: Ube, sweetened red beans (munggo), sweetened white beans, coconut gel, coconut strips, and jack fruit. Halo-halo is also often topped with flan. 


The fun part about halo-halo is that you can pick any kind of fruits or flavors of mix-ins that you like! Here’s the mix-ins we used in the layers for our matcha halo-halo:

  • Sweetened red beans
  • Coconut gel (nata de coco)
  • Aiyu jelly
  • Jackfruit

These fruity and sweet layers are then topped with:

  • Shaved ice
  • Matcha evaporated milk
  • Matcha ice cream
  • Matcha Pocky sticks, for decoration

HOW DO I MAKE SHAVED ICE?

 

If you happen to have a shaved ice machine, use that!


If you don’t have one and don’t want to purchase one, you can easily make shaved ice in your blender! Add ice to a blender and blend until you get a very fine, fluffy, snow-like texture.
