Saba con Yelo or what other call Saging con Hielo is a simple dessert of sweetened banana in brown sugar syrup served on a bed of crushed ice with milk. It’s a popular dessert drink in the Philippines usually found on carinderias that sell iced drinks, like Halo Halo, Mais con Yelo and Sago Gulaman.




  1. Pour a tablespoon of sugar in a saucepan, turn on heat and cook until sugar melts and partly burns (the slightly burnt taste gives an extra flavour but do not burn it too much, it will taste bad).
  2. Pour the water then let it boil. Once boiling add the remaining sugar and salt, let the sugar dissolve in medium heat then simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the bananas then cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until saba is tender but still firm.
  4. Remove from heat, let it cool overnight
  5. Prepare a deep bowl or a large glass, fill it up with ice then top it with sweetened bananas, its syrup and drizzle some evaporated milk. Serve.
