Ice Candy Summer Treat

I was online chatting with my cousin Ingrid who asked me what I want from the Philippines that she could send to me thru my other cousin Celia when she heads back to San Diego.

“Ice candy bags” was my reply.
I felt her eyebrows raised while I typed those words. But  surely she sent me some when Celia got back here. (thanks ladies!)
With the current heat wave engulfing the United States, I thought that the ice candy bags will be put to good use.
Ice candy is a frozen homemade popsicle.  It’s usually mixed with fresh fruits and milk.  You could actually concoct your own flavors with whatever fruits you  have at home.

You pour it in a narrow plastic bag using a funnel  or a tea pot.  The narrow spout of a teapot is best. Then freeze it.

I remember growing up making them but guess what, among the 6 siblings that I have the ice candy never saw itself frozen the way it should be.  We can’t wait for 24 hours for it to harden.  I was reminded today as my daughter declared that the ice candy that I made is all gone.


The ingredients are simple.  As I said you could have different flavors.  I used mango, corn and pineapple.
