Halo-Halo, Vegan

Halo-Halo, Vegan

From the Page

“What else can I make?” I wondered. Growing up in Digman, where Halo-halo originated from, I terribly missed this drink. Not that it’s hard to re-create. Most Asian and Filipino stores carry the ingredients. So without much contemplating, I drove to the store and bought the ingredients as well as an ice shaver (only $8.99 for the shaver, Score!). Halo-halo is similar to the Vietnamese jelly drinks except the Filipino version has more ingredients mixed with evaporated milk and topped with purple and yellow flan.  To veganize it, I incorporated the Vietnamese component of using coconut milk. Soymilk and Almond milk can also be used. For the purple flan, I used Will Peji’s recipe for “Ube Halaya“. Instead of having to buy all the sweetened fruits separately which can be expensive, I found a Halo-halo mix that has all the needed fruits in one jar. The fruits were sweet coconut jelly, red beans, jackfruit, bananas, and white beans. sweet fruits in a glass. After carefully putting the ingredients in layers, now you can destroy by mixing them well! hehe The layering is for the eyes, the mixing is for the tummy. And while at it, have fun exploring the vegan lifestyle. The AstigVegan Pinays:RG Enriquez has learned most of her cooking skills from the world’s best cook, her mom! Growing up eating heavily meat based dishes, RG often wondered if there’s ANYTHING ELSE out there that would not only TASTE GOOD but also make you FEEL GOOD (no guilt). Lo and behold, she has discovered the delicious world of vegan dishes! (yes, that’s delicious and vegan in one sentence). Since then, she’s been blogging with fellow Astig, TJ, about recipes they either “veganized” or originally created. Both of them also love to organize vegan potlucks with friends, often kicking butt in the game of charades.
