Lasang Pinoy, Sundays: Saba Con Hielo

Labels: , , , ,

Saba Con Hielo
saba in syrup + shaved ice = chillin' snack

During my two pregnancies in the perpetually hot and humid Philippines, I had saba bananas in syrup with shaved ice and milk almost every other day to cool me off. Not halo-halo which is too rich, just sweet saba, ice, and milk. I could have eaten just milk and sugar on shaved ice and I would probably have been happy anyway. Ripe saba banana, in my opinion, is the only kind of banana that pairs very well with shaved ice and milk.

I added tiny tapioca pearls and used half-and-half for a creamier richer cold treat

Ces, the kids will surely like it.:)

Jay, when it's available all year round at a corner shop, one tends to ignore it.:)

Juliana and Dhanggit, it is yummy specially during the hot months.:)

Jescel and Gizelle, check out your Vietnamese groceries. They might have the frozen saba which is the same variety as our saba.:)
