Simple and Delicious Halo-Halo Recipe

The sun is beaming and temperatures are rising. Summer is officially here! And while the children are running through sprinklers on the lawn, we tend to scramble to look for the perfect treat to keep ourselves (and the kids) cool. 

Then after quickly searching the internet, we find the perfect treat.  Imagine the looks on our kids' faces as they make their way indoors--water dripping from their clothes--to find huge bowls of Halo-Halo, or Filipino shaved ice, waiting to be devoured. 

While there are a wide variety of recipes out there, our recipe is inspired by Chef Isa Fabro, who debuted a high energy version of Halo-Halo for the Coachella Music Festival in 2016.  


Halo-Halo Mix
Ube Halaya or Ube Cookie Butter
Shaved or crushed Ice
Evaporated Milk
Fruity Pebbles Cereal
Optional: Leche Flan


  • Take a spoonful (or two) of each ingredient in the Halo-Halo mix and layer the bottom of a bowl or tall glass
  • Add shaved/crushed ice
  • Add evaporated milk
  • Add a spoonful of Ube Cookie Butter
  • Top with Fruity Pebbles Cereal and optional leche flan

There are no hard and fast rules to the amount of ingredients you'd like to add to your Halo-Halo. Customize it according to yours (or your kids') tastes. 

After all the ingredients have been added, mix everything up and enjoy (then get ready for seconds)!

*For the adults, try substituting evaporated milk with coconut milk and adding RedBull for an energy boost.
