How to make Mais con Yelo:
Mais con Yelo is similar to Halo-Halo but not as grand as Halo-Halo.
Mais con Yelo means corn on ice. This is a popular refreshment in the Philippines due to being inexpensive and easy to prepare with any type of milk. It is nevertheless extremely creamy and rich in flavor.
About 2 cups shave ice
A pint of vanilla or sweet cream ice cream
2-3 cobs of sweet corn (or a can of crunchy corn kernels)
1. If you are using fresh corn, scrape the corn kernels off the cob, also catching the liquid. Heat until warm in a saucepan. Cool in the refrigerator.
2. Assemble the mais con yelo in tall drinking glasses: a half cup of shave ice, followed by a few tablespoons of corn, a scoop of ice cream, then a few more tablespoons of corn. Pour a bit of milk over the whole thing. Crush it all together with a spoon while eating. Hopefully it’s a hot and humid day because this is the best way to enjoy it!
