Buko Pandan is one easy dessert that I always prepare if we have a family get together in our house. I don’t have yaya or helper so I always look for easy recipes that I can prepare so it would not be stressful.
We’re supposed to eat DIY halo-halo last Saturday but crashed ice was not available so my husband bought ginataang halo-halo (ginataang bilo-bilo). It was a warm merienda and I was craving for cold dessert to ease the summer heat.
We always have buko juice every week (market day) so I said to my husband that I will make Buko Pandan so ipakayod niya na lang yung laman. Pinapapak lang kasi namin lagi so for a change I will make dessert.
Like I said Buko Pandan is an easy dessert, all you need to do is mix the ingredients, the only ingredient that you need to cook is the gulaman jelly.
2 box of alsa green gulaman jelly
Few drops of pandan essence
1 can of condensed milk
1 pack of all purpose cream
1 bottle of nata de coco (drained)
3 coconut (shredded)
1. Cook the gulaman. Follow the package directions. Add few drops of pandan essence while cooking your gulaman.
2. Set aside and cool. When the jelly is firm, cut into cubes.
3. In a bowl, mix the shredded buko, nata de coco, gulaman jelly, all purpose cream and condensed milk.
4. Keep it refrigerated and eat.
My husband already ate this after I combined all the ingredients, masarap din naman kahit di pa malamig. Hehehe! You can also add sago if you want. My son likes this dessert without the nata de coco and jelly.
