Make a mouthwatering dessert out of it!  This yummy dessert is very easy to do and can be made with just more or less five ingredients including  “buko” or young coconut and pandan leaves added as flavoring to the gelatin or “gulaman”. The fragrant smell of pandan is soothing after a filling meal.

kusina ingredients 
  • 8 leaves of Pandan – (must be cleaned well)
  • 5 Buko (Coconut)not too hard, not too soft- Grated to strips
  • 10 cups Water approx.
  • 1 3/4 cups Sugar (more if you want it sweeter)
  • 1 cup Kaong or Nata de Coco
  • 3 small cans of Nestle Cream
  • 1 medium can of Condensed Milk
  • 2 bars of Green Gulaman
kusina instructions
1. Boil water together with 8 pandan leaves that are individually twisted to break the fibers and expose the juice. Simmer for 20 minutes.

2. Before adding 2 bars of gulaman, make sure you remove the pandan leaves and check if the remaining water is equal to 8 cups – 1 bar of gulaman is good for 4 cups of liquid. If it is not 8 cups, less will mean hard gulaman and more than 8 cups will result in mushy soft gulaman.

3. Ensuring gulaman is well-dissolved stir well.

4. Add sugar while mixing. Do this for 5 minutes.

5. Pour through a strainer into cooling trays. Wait till it cools and hardens, then put in fridge.

6. Meanwhile, mix the grated buko with the 3 cans of cream and 1 can of condensed milk.

7. Add Kaong or Nata de Coco if you prefer.

8. Get gulaman from ref and cut into 1 cm cubes. Mix with buko mixture.

9. For added flavor, serve Vanilla Ice Cream on top.
