Ice Candy
Monday, March 26, 2007
Summertime is here again and this time the summer heat seem to be unbeatable. Regular classes from my kids' school are over but they still go to school everyday for rehearsals in preparation for their recognition day. Everytime they arrive home after rehearsals they look for cold drinks, ice cream, popsicle, or anything which may sooth them from the hotness of the surroundings. So the other day while in the supermarket, I came across these ice candies (photo on the right). They look so good...very colorful. I bought 2 packs and my kids' were very eager to try them.

It was just this afternoon when we remembered to try them. Their looks are very deceiving because they tasted so bland. Whatever color you pick they tasted all the same. They were just nothing but water and food coloring. My kids' were disappointed as much as I am so I promised to make homemade ice candies one of these days. They just can't believe that I can do it but I assured them that it is very easy.

When I was a kid my mom and I used to make ice candies. Since mangoes abound during summer, we used to make them as ice candies aside from making mango shakes. We mix them with sugar and milk, put them in small plastic bags especially designed for making ice candies, then put them in the freezer. That's it.... in a few hours you have your ice candy.

Any fruit in season can be used. One of the most popular is buko (coconut). Just scrape the coconut meat (the ones used for salads are the best), combine the juice, sugar, and milk.
