While sweeping dried leaves in the front yard early this morning, I noticed that there were too many golden coconuts ready for picking. Instantly, I got the cravings for fresh coconut milk and water. Yay!
I asked my nephew and niece to go get us some. Then, they must’ve enjoyed picking that they have got ten coconut fruits in all. What else must I do?
Good thing, the pantry had never run out of cremes, condensed milk…always stacking up on those. You’ll never know when kids would do fruit shakes, or any desserts that needed milk and milk products. I always opt for the products in tetra packs -cremes, evaporated milk, condensed milk- they’re cheaper than those in cans. Just make sure to check the expiration dates on the label. Other grocery shops tend to give off products with near expiration dates as freebies. Moreover, products in tetra packs can be safely stored directly to the fridge not unlike those in cans.
So, on seeing the “surplus” coconut meats in the kitchen cupboard, I decided to make a dessert so easy to make and a very popular dessert here especially on occasions/events. It takes only few minutes of preparation and not so many ingredients.
We have here:
1 small pack of powdered gelatin (cooked as per packaged direction)
half cup raisins
1 pack condensed milk 9used up 3/4 only)
1 pack cream
1 cup grated cheese (or cubed, perhaps)
When the gelatin is set, cut into small squares/rectangles (whichever^_^). Mix all the ingredients. Chill (not freeze).
Dessert is ready.
Kids will be surprised when they get home from school. They are always hungry when they do arrived. Always looking for anything to eat.
