How to make Halo-Halo (Shaved iced dessert)
Halo-halo directly translates into "mix-mix" in Tagalog. It's a traditional ice dessert in the Philippines, similar to a sundae. While the original version includes palm fruit and condensed/evaporated milk, I kept this version simple and added some fresh seasonal berries.
The directions are pretty simple: take all the ingredients and go nuts with the layering!
Hope you guys like it :)
