Buko Ice Candy

Here's another ice candy flavor that you'll love...Buko (Young Coconut)! I made this for my Foodbuzz 24x24 Kamayan Dinner yesterday!


Check out this very refreshing summer treat!

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups shredded young coconut (I used frozen)
  • 2 cups coconut juice (I used frozen)
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 cans Nestle table cream
  • 2 cups milk


Procedure:
1. Place all the ingredients (except 1 cup of shredded coconut) in a blender. Blend until smooth.

2. Prepare 36 pcs ice candy bags. Funnel a little more than ¼ cup of the mixture into the bags. Put a few pieces of shredded coconut into each plastic.
3. Tie securely. For a more detailed procedure with pictures of making ice candy, click here.

4. Freeze until well set.

  2. I've been looking for a way to replicate those single serve yogurts, as my family can't seem to get enough of them. I think ice candy bags would work great. Any recommendation where I might get them online? (I live in the boonies and the nearest Asian market is 3 hours away)!

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Sorry, I can't answer that. I can't find any here in our area and I've tried searching online too but to no avail. Mine came all the way from the Philippines...

  4. Hmmm... Well, If I find a good source on the internet you'll be the first to know =)

    Asian cooking's always been a bit of a problem for me where the special ingredients are concerned. The first time I tried my hand at lumpia I had to make the wraps too. Part of the fun I guess!

  5. Thanks, that would be very much appreciated! :)
    You're good hah! I've made tortilla wrappers but never tried making lumpia wrappers! They're so thin and I don't seem to have the patience!

  7. I see a WalMart brand of condensed milk in the pic but it isn't in your list of ingredients? Is that the 2 cups of milk you're referring to? Also would this recipe work on popsicle molds?

    1. Hi! I was supposed to use 1 *14oz. can condensed milk and 1 cup sugar that's why it's in the picture, but I decided to use 2 cups of sugar instead. For the 2 cups of milk, it's fresh milk.
      And yes, this recipe works on popsicle molds.
