Halo-halo is a mix of a number of things—shaved ice, sweetened bananas, beans, ube halaya, leche flan, and sago, all topped with milk and ice cream. Sometimes, to add their personal touch, some Filipinos add a variety of other goods like shaved coconut, some slices of jackfruit, and a lot more.

A number of sweet treats mixed with shaved ice makes for a great tasting snack. Plus, all these components add color to the treat, making it more fun to eat.
