Filipino-Aussies Are Sharing Their Halo-Halo Creations, And My Mouth Is Watering

Pavlova halo-halo is the most Filo-Aussie thing ever and I love it so much.

It's Filipino Week at BuzzFeed Australia — which means we're celebrating everything Filipino-Aussie culture. Today, we got four Filipino-Australians to try each other's halo-halo recipe to find the best one.

Halo-halo is a Filipino dessert with shaved ice, condensed milk, and any kind of toppings that you desire. That could be fruit, different types of sweet beans or ice cream. By definition, halo-halo means "mix, mix", which is exactly what you're meant to do with it (before devouring it).

Different parts of the Philippines make halo-halo differently and everyone has their individual preferences. The key is getting the ratio right – just enough sweetness, not too cold and packed with flavour!
