Halo-halo (Tagalog language for "mix-mix") is a popular Filipino dessert with mixtures of shaved ice and evaporated milk to which are added various boiled sweet beans, jello and fruits. It is served in a tall glass or bowl.
Ingredients include boiled kidney beans, garbanzos, sugar palm fruit (kaong), coconut sport (macapuno), and plantains caramelized in sugar, jackfruit (langkâ), gulaman, tapioca, nata de coco, sweet potato (kamote), cheese, pounded crushed young rice (pinipig). In terms of arrangement, most of the ingredients (fruits, beans, and other sweets) are first placed inside the tall glass, followed by the shaved ice. This is then sprinkled with sugar, and topped with either (or a combination of) leche flan, purple yam (ubeng pula), or ice cream. Evaporated milk is poured into the mixture upon serving.
i always wanted to eat this dessert but due to electricity problem as well as less availability of purple yam and other ingredients.. i thought to try my own version of halo halo. i hope you like it.

there is no such recipe of halo halo n internet all i could find was a picture of layering ingredients. so here i would like you to see :)
Step 1: Leche Flan
Over here leche flan is alot similar to rafhan egg pudding with egg yolks powdered.

Step 2: Jelly
Step 3: Red Kidney Beans
i boiled the red kidney beans, strained and chilled.
Step 4: Nata De Coco
Nata de coco is a chewy, translucent, jelly-like foodstuff produced by the fermentation of coconut water, which gels through the production of microbial cellulose by Acetobacter xylinum. Originating in the Philippines, Nata de coco is most commonly sweetened as a candy or dessert, and can accompany many things including pickles, drinks, ice cream, puddings and fruit mixes.
