Mais con Yelo Recipe is a popular summer dessert which is sold in the neighborhood or streets, It has toppings which is optional, but the most commonly used ingredients for it are corn flakes, ice cream and “pinipig,” which are flattened glutinous rice grains.
Summer in the Philippines can be unbearable because of the heat. It’s very hot and dry in cities, and Filipinos will do anything that will help them cool down. One way to do this is to swim in pools or beaches. Another solution is to go up in Baguio.
However, not everyone has the luxury to pursue these leisure activities just to cool down. Instead, some Filipinos just chill at home and eat ice-based desserts. Halo-halo is the most known Filipino shaved/crushed ice dessert, but not everyone prefers this all-in-one treat. For those who want to keep their dessert simple but still very tasty, Mais Con Yelo is the perfect choice.
This dessert’s name literally translates to “corn in ice” in Spanish, and it is a variation of the Halo-halo recipe. Mais Con Yelo is similar to the recipe of Saba Con Yelo, but the latter uses Cardaba banana (Saging na saba) instead of corn.
The recipe for this yummy dessert is easy to do, which is why Filipinos love to make it during hot summer days. It provides instant refreshment, especially after the ice melted. Mais Con Yelo definitely makes summer days more bearable.
Be very careful when buying outside though and ensure that the ice used is clean and not a tap water, always ask where the water came from before buying, mot probably ti is clean but if you are sensitive and cannot tolerate certain organisms which may go with the food then it can be a problem.
I am just saying this to make up three hundred not dollars but I am not going to tell you because I am just slacking to reach it and yes I am putting that here which makes no sense to you.
