Buko Pandan Drink

  • Author: Peachy from The Peach Kitchen


  • 6 pandan leaves, washed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 bottle of  sweetened nata de coco
  • meat and  juice of 2 large coconuts, {meat shredded to strips}
  • 3 cups tapioca pearls
  • 1 1/2 cans of condensed milk
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 packet of green gelatin
  • Green food color – optional


  1. Boil the cut-up pandan leaves in water until the water is infused with pandan flavor. Remove the leaves from the water and throw it out.
  2. Cook the gelatin according to packet directions but use two-thirds of the pandan infused water. Reduce the amount of water needed so you’ll get firmer gelatin.
  3. Cut the gelatin into cubes when it solidifies.
  4. Strain Nata de Coco to remove the sugar syrup.
  5. In a large pitcher, combine shredded coconut meat, coconut juice, tapioca pearls, nata de coco, condensed milk, cubed gelatin, water and what’s left of the pandan-infused water.
  6. Add green food color, if desired, just for presentation.
  7. Mix well. Put in the fridge and chill for 2 hours.
