- ¼ cup coconut flakes or desiccated coconut, plain or toasted
- ¼ cup mini marshmallows
A hot day is easily remedied with something cold. And as a tropical country, the Philippines has a range of iced desserts/snacks. Halo-halo and mais con hielo are the usual picks. But we’ll bet everyone’s childhood summers were also riddled with iskrambol.
Think of this recipe as an upgraded iskrambol (or “ice scramble) or a coconut milkshake with the works. Our version marries it with another summer-y favorite: coconut. Of course, the flakes and mini marshmallows are optional. Go wild; top it with whatever you want. (Yes, that includes powdered milk.) But the coconut halves as vessels are non-negotiable.
