These New Ube And Melon-Flavored Condensada Are What You Need To Make Easy Samalamig
Add this to your grocery cart ASAP!
There are¬†limitless ways you can use condensed milk in the kitchen, which is why it's a staple in most households. But if you're in the mood to experiment, Alaska recently came out with new condensed milk flavors: Ube-licious Macapuno (P46) and the Milky Melon (P46).
These two new flavors have a robust, distinct flavor profile. The Ube-licious Macapuno has a strong, sweet artificial ube flavoring and it comes in a vibrant purple hue we all associate with¬†ube. The Milky Melon, on the other hand, feels like a melted version of Dynamite, a nostalgic childhood candy.
If using flavored condensed milk for desserts like leche flan or ice cream seem like a huge step, you can ease your way in by making a simple, no-fuss samalamig: a refreshing sweet Filipino beverage that commonly includes gulaman, sago,¬†and lots of ice.¬†
All you need to do is to add 4 tablespoons of the Ube-licious Macapuno or the Milky Melon condensed milk in a glass and fill it with ice-cold water and add cubes of ice. If you have extra budget, it's more delicious if you add sago, gulaman, or buko¬†strips if you're using the Ube-licious Macapuno, and melon strips for the Milky Melon.¬†
You can also transfer the mixed beverage in ice candy plastic packets and freeze them overnight.¬†With the current Manila humid weather, an ube¬†macapuno or melon-flavored ice candy will surely¬†hit the spot.
Alaska's Ube-licious Macapuno and Milky Melon are available in major supermarkets. Prices may vary.
