Summer is heating up around here, and so are all the backyard parties that we’ve been invited to. Annie can’t help but make two or three things to bring to these parties – she loves to cook, dontcha know – and one of her more popular desserts is this Es Teler (pronounced “ice tell-UR”). We posted a teaser about this cool Indonesian dessert last year.
What do you think of eating or drinking on a hot day? A tall glass of iced tea? Some ice cream? In Hawaii, we do shave ice – I like mine with ice cream on the bottom.
The countries of Southeast Asia have taken cold treats to the next level. Aside from ais kacang and cendol from Malaysia, you also have halo halo from the Philippines and es campur from Indonesia.
This dessert contains palm fruit, jackfruit, syrup, young coconut, avocado, condensed milk and ice. Very nice, very cooling, and very quickly eaten!
