Halohalo Popsicles Recipe

Servings: 4–5
Prep time: 1 hour, plus 6–8 hours to freeze pops

Ube layer

  • ½ cup cooked ube
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup sugar

Coconut/fruit layer

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup diced jackfruit, mango, coconut gelatin, macapuno (young coconut meat), lychee, or any other fruit of your choice

To make ube layer: Place all ingredients into a small saucepan over medium heat and whisk until sugar is dissolved. Carefully pour hot mixture into a blender and process till smooth. Divide among popsicle molds, filling halfway. Freeze until semifrozen, about 2 hours.

To make coconut layer: Whisk coconut milk and sugar until dissolved. Stir in fruit. Evenly divide the mixture over the semi-frozen ube and insert popsicle sticks. Freeze until solid, about 4-6 hours.
