The recipe calls for a mixture of sweetened preserved fruits, evaporated milk, and crushed ice topped with ice cream or leche flan.

Paano Gumawa ng Haluhalo:
Maraming puwedeng gawing paraan… Heto ang isa:
Hinog na mangga, saging na saba, pinya o anumang sariwang prutas ang ilahok. Hiwa-hiwain nang may 1/2 pulgadang pakuwadrado at paghalu-haluin na kasama ang kinaskas na yelo. Sa halip na asukal ay arnibal ang isama. Pagkatapos lagyan ng gatas.
Ano talaga ang puwedeng ilagay sa haluhalo? Bahala ka na! Peyborit namin ang kaong!
Did you know that haluhalo was sort of introduced by the Japanese to the Philippines in the years before the Second World War? Their shaved-ice dessert in those bygone days was much simpler with sweet adzuki beans and milk.
