Iskrambol or Ice Scramble is the Filipino version of Slushy made out of banana flavoured frozen condensed milk usually sold by street hawkers. During my childhood this was really popular and it was sold outside schools in big styroboxes, I still remember kids queuing for this one while the vendor scoops it out from the styro box, there was no slushy machine used and it was usually made in vendors homes using crushed ice mixed with milk and other flavourings. Some fancy version before tops it with some powdered milk and some with chocolate sauce but the modern day version had changed a lot. This newer version is more hygienic as it is now sold in Malls with an array of toppings from pinipig to marshmallows.
