Buko Pandan Ice Candy

Buko panden ice candy is a popular ice candy in Philippines.Treat yourself with some chilly treat this summer! Ice candies are easy-to-hold treats which let you eat anytime and anywhere. Best eaten during a very hot and sunny day. Make sure to make a lot since a piece will never be enough!


Cool refreshments really save us from having a bad mood during summer, right? Aside from cool beverages, ice creams and popsicles, another favorite summer treat which can help us beat the heat are ice candies. Ice candy is a type of frozen dessert which can be flavoured by almost anything. It is a milk-based dessert which is packed in a small and thin plastic and is held by the hand when eaten. The two most common flavors are chocolate and fruits.

As a child who grows up selling ice candies, I bet I am one of those knowledgeable when it comes to ice candy. This treat is not just a simple treat for me since it is one of the first foods I was able to sell in our neighbourhood. Back when I was 10, my mom taught me how to make and sell ice candies for some extra money. I was a fun experience making a chilly snack while making money on the side.

The most fun part of making ice candies is you can experiment with different flavors. Just like ice cream, add any flavor to a milk base and then transfer to plastics and then freeze. Making it is as easy as making ice!

When you see a green ice candy, it’s probably buko pandan. Nothing beats buko and pandan combo in a refreshing ice candy and is one of the usual flavor served by our favorite kuya who roams in the neighbourhood. Buko pandan is one of the most native and Filipino taste. Aside from the fresh coconut taste and the pandan aroma, its green color also makes it attractive and more appealing to the eye.

Making buko pandan ice candy is SUPER easy. Even if the only experience you have similar to this is making ice, you will surely make this awesome treat without any hassle.

Unlike ice candies made with powdered juices, our ice candy is made with the freshest and natural ingredients. With that, we’re gonna make a few steps to make is the creamiest and the sweetest as possible. So instead of just mixing everything together and then put in ice candy plastics, combine all the ingredients in a pot and we will simmer it for a while.

Quick note: Since we are making buko pandan flavoured ice candy, I used buko pandan condensed milk. If not available, you can use the regular one.

You might notice that some milk-based ice candies have a grainy or “icy” texture. To make our buko pandan ice candy a lot smoother, adding a slurry made with cassava flour and water is they secret hack.

Use a funnel to transfer the mixture easier. Some bits might clog the funnel so use a chopstick to push the bits. Twist and tie the end of the plastics to seal it.

The last thing you need to do is to wait overnight for them to freeze so you have a chilly nice treat the next day! Make a large batch and eat them whenever you like. Enjoy!
