Ice Candy: A Taste of Filipino Summer
Ice candy has been a staple in the Philippines for generations. Sold in schools, sari-sari stores, and virtually everywhere, this frozen dessert holds a special place in the hearts of Filipinos. Made by blending fresh fruit with milk, sweeteners, and other ingredients, ice candy is enjoyed in the Philippines and many countries worldwide. The flavors vary depending on the native fruits of the region, but Mango Cheese Ice Candy remains a favorite.
Creating the Perfect Mango Cheese Ice Candy
When making Mango Cheese Ice Candy, it’s essential to use ripe, juicy yellow mangoes. The sweetness can be adjusted to your personal preference. For a non-dairy alternative, you can substitute canned coconut milk and coconut condensed milk. Cornstarch or Cassava Flour is used as a stabilizer to create a custard-like base and achieve a soft, creamy texture in the ice candy.
Tips and Alternatives
- For a smoother texture, use a blender to puree the mangoes before mixing them with the other ingredients.
- Try using different fruits, such as oranges or melon, to create unique ice candy flavors.
- Replace the mangoes with cocoa powder for a chocolate version and adjust the sweetener accordingly.
