How to make Ice Scramble

It was not long ago when it was safe to buy Ice Scramble from vendors. Those were the days when water was much cleaner, without risk of Hepatitis A infection. These days, once can easily buy Ice Scramble at the Philippine malls but for those who reminisce this good ole street food treat, you can prepare one at home. One just needs to know the classic Ice Scramble base, and choose your favorite topping.

Classic Ice Scramble base:

1 cup Evaporated milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon banana flavoring (adjust to desired taste)
few drops of red liquid coloring to get the right shade of pink color

3 cups crushed ice

2 Tablespoons milk powder
Chocolate syrup
2 tablespoons rice krispies (optional)

Mix the ingredients of the base and add on to crushed ice. The actual proportion of ice to the ice scramble base might vary so adjust as desired. Mix well and keep in an insulated container. Fill a cup with the mixed crushed ice base. Add milk powder and chocolate syrup and top with rice crispies or any desired topping.

There you go. Such a refreshing treat during warm weather. I think this is our very own version of the smoothie, our Pinoy Smoothie.
