Mais Con Yelo

Mais Con Yelo or Maíz con hielo means corn with ice in Spanish. It is another popular drink dessert in the Philippines made out of shaved ice, corn kernels, sugar and milk. Similar to halo halo but way much easier to prepare as it contains less ingredients and preparation is cloese to none, a very good way of cooling down during a hot summer day.

    Interesting! And oh how I wish it was a hot summer day. 😉 I think my daughter would really enjoy this. She’s been known to eat frozen corn kernels straight from the freezer. 😉

  5. So unusual (OK, for Americans that is). Sounds just wonderful though. Corn is so good creamy and is naturally sweet.

  6. I would have never imagined corn with ice would be such an amazing looking dessert. I just had no idea. This Mais Con Yelo really looks delicious

  7. Hi Raymund! I hope you had a nice Christmas with your family. I’m just stopping by to wish you Happy New Year. I checked all the posts that I’ve missed till now. It’s amazing you can post almost everyday. You work full-time and cook, and blog. I am always impressed and you keep motivating me! I’ll look forward to your posts in 2012. It was great meeting you this year and hope to learn more Filipino (and other) cooking from you next year. 🙂

  8. Very very unique, never seen anything like this. I had corn for dinner today, not dessert. Maybe I could have used leftovers for dessert:)

  10. Wow! Mais con hielo topped with vanilla ice cream! YUMMEH! I’m a big fan of cold treats. I WANT! =D

  11. This is new to me but I think now with all the bubble tea outlets opened in Malaysia, you can sort of find the same though I have not ventured into that.
    Makes a refreshing and soothing to the throat drink and yes, why not as desserts too?

  12. vanilla ice cream is really versatile flavor.. great addition for desserts..
