After hibernating for so long, I guess it’s time to blog back! Kumusta na ba kayong lahat? Ayos ba ang summer vacation nyo?

My family and I had a 12-day vacation in the Philippines a couple of weeks ago and we had so much fun kahit na super init ng panahon. Pero papayag ba naman kaming maspoil ang bakasyon namin ng dahil lang sa init ng panahon? Shempre hindi! It’s summer kaya naman madaming usong pampalamig ang pwedeng gawin. I am so blessed to have a mom who cooks good food, she really took care of us plus our bellies! Nung dumating kami sa Pinas gumawa agad si mama ng halo-halo kaya naman pawing pawi ang init na aming naramdaman. Swerte kasi samu’t saring pagkain at kakanin din ang laging nakahain kaya sobrang enjoy ang bakasyon.

Now that we’re back in Cambodia, I’ll admit that I’m a bit homesick. Iba kapag may nanay na nag aasikaso sayo. Iba ang luto ni nanay. And because I’m now a mom too, inaalagaan ko din ang mga chikiting ko kahit na busy ako sa trabaho. Para hindi nila masyadong  mamiss ang Pinas, gumawa ako ng ice candy – ang paborito kong pampalamig nung bata ako, I’m sure peborit nyo din to! Enjoy akong kainin to kasi napakasimple nya at masarap. Naalala ko tuloy ang kapitbahay namin na best seller ang pinya at  sago flavored ice candy. Lagi akong bumibili sa kanya kasi ang sarap sarap nya gumawa at ang mura pa. P1 lang to dati kaya kapag may P5 ka mahaba habang enjoyment na ang matitikman mo. Meron din syang Milo, ube, orange, grape, at iba pang flavor. Basta ako solve na sa sago at pinya. The best!

So going back, I made ice candy for my children the other day. Mango and avocado were in season, so I chose them as my flavors and since it’s very easy to make you can do this with your children at home as a bonding activity.

All you need is the following:

- fruit in season

- condensed milk

- crushed ice

- water

- blender

- funnel

- ice candy bags

To make ice candy, simply scoop out the fruit (avocado or mango as I have used) and  put them in the blender. You will need at least 4 mangoes or 2 avocados and add half can of the condensed milk. Blend it for 10 seconds. Once the fruit is smooth, add 500 ml of water and keep on blending for another 10 seconds. Make sure the juice is now even out. Once ready, get your funnel and ice candy bags. Pour the juice in the plastic and lock it by rolling the ends. If you do not have the plastic bags, you may use any Popsicle mould you have, then put them in the freezer till frozen. Share and enjoy the fun!
