Believe me, nothing beats slurping a cup of ice scramble or iskrambol in the Filipino language during searing Philippine afternoons.

Iskrambol does the work!

It is so chilly it can easily refresh your heavily sweating body.

It is syrupy.

It perks up your dull spirits when you feel too hot to do anything.

Not to mention, it is absolutely light on the pocket.

Neither pricey creams nor swanky chocolate bars needed!

With a concoction of shaved ice, sugar, milk, and chocolate syrup then you are good to go.

Of course, you can choose to be a little fancy by adding in vanilla or banana extracts, marshmallows, or fruits to your iskrambol.

But you have to know that all these are optional.

Filipinos love eating their iskrambol plain and perfect!

No chance to get to the Philippines?

That’s not a problem at all.

You can easily make the Philippine iskrambol in your kitchen with these two easy-to-follow recipes.

      This sounds delicious! Personally I'd stick w/ vanilla extra, something about chocolate and bananas together I can't handle! lol =) But I deffinately want to try to make this sometime... I have an ice crusher but not a shaver, I don't think the ice would be small enough to drink though it makes quite big pieces of crushed ice... maybe if I ran it through several times... I'll play around with it and see what I can do =) Thanks again!
