A Halloween Treat - Buko Pandan

Bwahahahhahaha. It’s Halloween once again and below is my idea of a goolishly delicious treat. It’s actually called (Buko Pandan) or as Trish called it Green Grass Jelly & Young Coconut Cream Salad.

This dessert is popular at all Filipino gatherings and like all Filipino desserts, it is really rich and sweet.

So here is Mama Eugenio’s version of Buko Pandan

Buko Pandan

2 cans of green grass jelly
2 cans of coconut gel (Nata De Coco)
1 can of sugar palm seed (Kaong)
600ml thickened cream
1 can of condensed milk
2 bags of frozen young coconut meat
1 teaspoon of pandan flavouring


1. Drain the coconut gel, sugar palm seeds and coconut.
2. Slice the grass jelly into small cubes and put it into a large deep serving bowl.
3. Add the coconut gel, sugar palm seed and coconut to the grass jelly.
4. Stir in the thickened cream, condensed milk and pandan flavouring.
5. Set aside in the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes before serving.


-       - Once the Buko Pandan chills the flavour changes so buy 2 cans of condensed milk as you may need to add a little bit more. It really depends on how sweet you want it.
-       - If you cant find grass jelly, you can just make pandan flavoured jelly using agar agar, sugar and some pandan flavouring
-       - All the ingredients are available at all good Asian supermarkets.

Happy Halloween Everyone, I hope you all have a devilishly good time. Mwahahahahahha…

The photos are scary (I'm no good with spiders, even fake ones) but I still keep staring... have never tried this but I think I'd wade through spiders to get so some now, sounds awesome.
