Halo-Halo Festival 2022 in Vancouver

Summer in Vancouver is hot. If you want to beat the heat, check what desserts tropical countries like the Philippines have to offer.

What is Halo-Halo?

The literal translation is mix-mix. It is a dessert from the Philippines consisting of shaved ice, condensed milk, and sugar. Then, you add mixed fruit, boiled sweetened beans, and gelatin that you mix together. It's usually topped with purple yam (ube), leche flan, and ice cream.
