Easy step to make Mais Con Yelo

One of the easiest cooling desserts or meriendas to make in a Filipino household, mais con yelo is also a healthier alternative to the ice cream-loaded halo-halo or the chocolate confections that are frequently present in every mall. This recipe makes use of the fresh sweetness of golden corn—whether you want it creamed or whole kernel—with the simple addition of sugar to taste and some condensed milk for a silky texture and a chilly spoonful to sip on a hot summer day. The addition of some corn-based cereal—or any cereal you fancy, really—would not be amiss, as the sweetness and crunch will add a delightful contrast to each mouthful of sweetened shaved ice, milk and corn. The best part about this favorite recipe is that all you have to do is combine the ingredients, so it’s no hassle to make at all!
