Preparation Instructions:

  1. In a saucepan, mix the coconut water with cornstarch. Stir well until dissolved.

  4. Let it cool down a little bit before adding the remaining ingredients.
  5. Add in sweetened condensed milk, fresh milk, and vanilla extract if desired.
  6. Stir thoroughly until well blended and add coconut strings and mix well.
  7. Test the taste of your mixture and add sugar if needed.
  8. Use a funnel and ladle and pour the mixture into each Ice candy wrapper about 5 inches long.
  9. If you don’t have a funnel you can use a pitcher.
  10. Tie the top tightly and trim the plastic if desired.
  11. Arrange Ice Candy in the freezer and freeze until frozen.
  12. Serve and enjoy your Buko Ice Candy!
