Ice candies are a common refreshing treat during summer in the Philippines. One of the easiest and delicious cold dessert that kids and adults enjoy eating. An inexpensive treat to beat the heat!
You probably haven't heard about Pinipig Ice Candy and maybe there are just a few recipes for this circulating the internet. Not a common flavor but one of the best I've tasted so far. I grew up eating this flavor because my mom used to make this for us and this is my favorite flavor.
What is Pinipig? Pinipig are immature grains of glutinous rice pounded until flat before being toasted. It is commonly used as toppings for various desserts in Philippine cuisine, but can also be eaten plain, made into cakes, or mixed with drinks and other dishes. Here in the US, they are available in many Asian stores. On this recipe, the pinipig is toasted to give the ice candy a subtle flavor when mixed with coconut milk. Try it! Super easy to make and delicious!
