KCC June Challenge: White Food

“Oh my goodness!!!” …. that was the first thought that came to my mind when I woke up this morning with a sense of panic! Tomorrow is the last day of June and I don’t have an entry for this month’s challenge. And the worst part of it is, I’m co-hosting this with Adora… oh boy!!! (now it’s panic attack!)

Here I go again, trying to find time for everything yet I wish there are more hours in a day. This month is still extremely busy with all the summer festivals going on plus the regular booked events. So my little voice is now screaming at me saying ” excuses, excuses!!! either you have a blog post or you don’t! ” I decided to have one even way past the deadline…but still within June 🙂

So with little time and the only inspiration I have is this month’s theme “White Food” because it’s the wedding month. So I decided to make a dessert this time. This is inspired by our traditional Filipino salad but I only use the white ingredients. This is very easy, no fuss dessert and actually really good and have different textures in each ingredient.

So here we go….

Ingredients:

  • 1 can almond jelly, drained and cut into cubes
  • 1 bottle pineapple gel
  • 1 bottle coconut gel
  • 1 bottle kaong – white, drained
  • 1 can lychee, drained

Procedure:

I just tasted the water and the syrup of each bottle and I decided to use the pineapple gel’s syrup and coconut gel syrup because it’s more of a neutral flavour among everybody. It’s not too thick and not too sweet.

Really, just mix everything, chill and serve.

You can also add a can of fruit cocktail – i just didn’t do it this time because i’m sticking with the white theme.

    Yum, lychees and nata de coco! So good when it is super cold with the AC on inside, haha.

    Diona, this is perfectly white (except for the garnish)! You put all the things that I like together. I like all those chewy minatamis.

    It looks really refreshing. Of course, white reminds one of cold!

    What a great “white” dessert! I love almond jelly and it’s so good in the summer. Thanks for sharing! I look forward to more of your recipe ideas especially now that I’m part of the Kulinarya Cooking Club.
