Red Bean Ice Candy (Munggo)
Red Bean or Munggo ice candy is a very popular ice candy in the Philippines together with the other flavours such as buko, mango, melon and chocolates. But this munggo ice candy is my favourite. It is close to my heart not only for its taste but the memories it brings when I was in my childhood.
- 1 cup red beans
- 1 can evaporated milk large
- 1 can condensed milk small
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 4 cups water
- ice candy plastic
Cook red beans in medium heat with water until tender (this will take around 1½ hrs.). Once cooked let it cool then set it aside.
Set aside a ⅓ amount of cooked red beans.
Place evaporated milk, condensed milk, sugar, remaining ⅔ the amount of red beans with 2 cups of water from boiling in a blender. Blend until mixed together but leave some texture from the red beans
Using a funnel, add 1 tsp of cooked red beans then pour the blended mixture into the ice candy plastic bags. Tie tightly and do with the remaining mixture.
Freeze then serve.
