WATCH: How to Make Biko

This version of the all-time favorite Filipino snack or merienda has a delightful tangy twist!


Biko is a popular Filipino dessert or merienda made with sticky rice (malagkit), brown sugar and coconut milk. This version has a tangy twist from the calamansi rind. Top it off with latik (reduced and browned coconut milk) for extra flavor!


1 1/2 cup sticky rice (malagkit)
2 cups water (for cooking the rice)
1 1/2 coconut milk
1/8 teaspoon calamansi rind
For the latik:
1/2 cup coconut milk


1 Cook the sticky rice with 2 cups of water.

2 Make the latik: Simmer 1/2 cup coconut milk until brown and completely reduced. Drain the coconut oil.

3 In another pan, combine the coconut milk, sugar and calamansi rind. Add the cooked sticky rice and mix until well-combined.

4 Transfer onto a pan lined with banana leaves. Let cool.

5 Cut into squares, top with the latik, and enjoy!
