Mixed Shaved Ice Dessert Recipe – Resep Minuman Es Campur

Indonesia has a multitude of thirst-quenching sweet snacks that are also enjoyed as desserts. Known as Es Campur (Mixed Ice), the contents of this dessert depend upon the availability of the ingredients and the preference of the individual. The ones listed here are just suggestions. Popular also in the Philippines, where it is called Halo Halo.

Ingredients :

  • 1 portion Palm Sugar Syrup
  • 8 tablespoons agar-agar jelly cubes or flavored gelatin cubes
  • 8 tablespoons diced fermented tapioca (tape), (optional, see note)
  • 8 tablespoons diced kolang kaling palm fruits (see note)
  • 2 cups (about 250 g) diced fruit (papaya, avocado and pineapple)
  • 1 young coconut, flesh removed with a spoon, 1 cup (250 ml) of the coconut juice reserved (optional, see note)
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) sweetened condensed milk, cream or evaporated milk
  • Crushed ice

Method :

  1. Prepare the Palm Sugar Syrup by following the recipe.
  2. Drain the jelly cubes, fermented tapioca (if using) and kolang kaling. Cut the coconut flesh into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Place the diced fruits with all the other ingredients, except the crushed ice, in a mixing bowl and mix well. To serve, ladle the mixture into individual glasses and top with some crushed ice.

Note : Agar-agar jelly cubes, flavored gelatin cubes, fermented tapioca, kolang kaling and coconut water are available in some Asian specialty stores. Look for bottles of young coconut flesh in Filipino stores under the name buko. This is also sold with the juice in cans.
