Buko Pandan

Buko (young coconue meat) and pandan flavored jell-o mixed with cream and milk

It's like ambrosia - young slivers of buko (coconut), fresh pandan leaves, cream, sugar and a chunks of a green gelatin that could be Jello or Gulaman, depending on the ingredients handy. It's frozen into a light, airy mixture with just a hint of sugar - perfect for a hot sweltering day.

you will need:

  • 3 boxes Alsa green unflavored gulaman (jell-o)
  • 2-3 pandan leaves
  • 3/4 can condensed milk
  • 1 medium bottle green nata de coco (may use pandan flavorored nata de coco)
  • 4 small tetra packs all-purpose cream
  • about 4 pieces buko (young coconut – shredded meat)


  • Boil gelatin with pandan leaves based on the instructions in the box.
  • Remove pandan leaves-be careful as may get too bitter if leaves left in too long.
  • Pour into molds (such as rectangular pyrex dishes) and cut into cubes when firm. Drain nata de coco very well so mixture will not get watery. Whip cream to increase volume.
  • Mix gelatin squares, drained nata de coco, whipped cream shredded buko and condensed milk.
  • Chill and serve.
