Best Halo Halo Recipe | The Yummiest Halohalo Dessert

Updated on October 17, 2013
4 stars from 11 ratings of Filipino Recipes

The best halo halo recipe ever is in this hub. It’s summer once again and thought of making this hub page as I eat my favorite dessert every summer, halohalo. If you’re looking for the yummiest halo halo, be glad you’re in the right place. Since you love reading my hubs, I have made two halo halo recipes based from my two favorite restaurants in the Philippines.

Halo halo is a famous Filipino dessert alternative to ice cream and their kinds. “Halo” means “mix” in the Filipino dialect. So the word halo-halo literally means mix-mix. To have the complete idea, halo halo is a dessert composed of sweetened fruits like banana (saba), jackfruit (langka), coconut sport strips (macapuno), sweetened beans and purple yam, crushed ice and creamy milk all mixed together. There are so many varieties of halo halo recipes depending on your favorite ingredients and taste. They usually top it with ice cream, too. Summer won’t be complete without a tall glass of my favorite halohalo. As to how we eat it? Commonly, we eat it by mixing and stirring all the ingredients together til the ice blends with them. Then eat each piece til only the liquid mix remains. That’s the good part of it, the craze of consuming the yummiest cream – the melted ice cream, milk, ice, and the remaining little bits of all its ingredients. This dessert is so easy to make. You’ll have it even while watching a tv show or movie. You can have it in less than 10 minutes. Why doncha include this in your kitchen menu.

Halo Halo Recipe based from Chowking Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons kaong (sugar palm seed)
  • 2 tablespoons sweetened langka (jackfruit strips)
  • 2 tablespoons sweetened langka (jackfruit strips)
  • 2 tablespoons sweetened white beans
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sport strips (macapuno)
  • 2 tablespoons red monngo beans
  • 2 tablespoons sweetened plantains (saba)
  • 2 tablespoons purple yam jam (ube)
  • 2 tablespoons crème caramel custard (leche flan)
  • 2 scoops of your fave ice cream
  • 1 cup crushed ice or shaved ice
  • ¼ cup evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp white sugar (this is optional)


  1. In a clear glass bowl, place a cup of shaved or crushed ice.
  2. Pour ¼ cup of evaporated milk.
  3. Then add the first nine ingredients.
  4. Top the two scoops of ice cream at the center.
  5. Serve with a long spoon. **You can add more ingredients of your fave

Halo Halo Recipe based on Razon’s

For the record, this one is my favorite. I love their halo-halo more than Chowking’s or Iceberg’s or any other resto out there. Halo-halo recipe of Razon is quite simple and easy to do. First, their main ingredients are only three. Yup, 3. Few but very Ooooh! So delicious that you would want to visti Razon’s over and over again. Like me, I always dine at Razon’s when I go shopping at Starmills. I order their famous ‘palabok’ and cheeseburger plus their unforgettable halo-halo.


3 tbsp of sweetened plantains (saba)

3 tbsp of sweetened macapuno (sweetened coconut strips)

3 tbsp of leche flan (crème caramel custard)

2 cups of shaved or crushed ice

¼ cup evaporated milk

2 tbsp of sweetened plantains syrup

Place all the first 2 ingredients into a tall clear glass. Add the crushed ice. Top it with leche flan (crème caramel custard). Pour about 2 tbsp of the sweetened plantain syrup then the evaporated milk. Serve.

**This is based from Razon’s halo-halo recipe. No ice cream, no ube yam jam but the taste is a craze. Exact recipe is of course a secret. But then, I tried this recipe and it tastes the same. If you regularly eat there, obviously, you’ll get it just the same. I loved this kind of halo-halo the most because all the ingredients just blend smoothly all together.

      I've been to a restaurant called Razon's.. and their halo-halo is so divine. I've eaten a few halo-halos here with many fixings. But Razon's is the best so far for me, even though their ingredients are few. Less is more I think.

      Chowking has launched a cheaper halo-halo junior size this year. For only 29, you'll enjoy a yummy halo-halo with a scoop of your choice of ice cream. I always prefer Razon's :) Thanks Ice Baby!

      Hi Aileen! Halo halo business sounds tempting too. Don't forget to share your biz experience :)

      What I don't like about chowking's halo halo is the texture of the ice. It's too compact that it's almost like a brick.
