Ice Scramble for the Kids

Ice scramble is a famous ice-based treat here in the Philippines. It is usually topped with various flavorings like milk, marshmallows and chocolate syrup. It started around 10 years ago and was only being sold by vendors along the street, today however, it can be found not only in almost every street corner but in almost every mall! Most Filipinos, including myself, really enjoy this yummy treat.

Even our toddlers were already familiar with ice scramble, which is why we decided to let them try making their own! We had to modify it a bit but it still tasted great!

To all my readers from around the world, why don’t you give this a try! I’d love to hear how your kids would think of it! :)

What you will need:

  • Crushed Ice
  • Fresh Milk
  • Sweetened/Condensed Milk
  • Powdered Milk
  • Red Food Coloring
  • Banana Extract
  • Marshmallows/Candy sprinkles/Chocolate CerealĀ  etc
  • Chocolate syrup (optional)
  • Blender
  • Small cup and spoon

*Note: Some people usually mix the ice, food coloring, condensed/sweetened milk, fresh milk and banana extract together with a big ice crusher. Unfortunately, all we had was a blender. So we had to have the ice crushed outside, and then just mix the ingredients afterward.

Step 1: Put the crushed ice in the blender.

Step 2: Pour in the fresh milk and sweetened/condensed milk.

The amount depends on your taste, I like it sweet so I poured a LOT of condensed milk and around a glass of fresh milk.

Step 3: Add just a drop of red food coloring and banana extract. The banana extract tastes and smells really strong, so make sure to just put a drop or two or it’ll overpower the other flavors.

Step 4: Blend.

Step 5: Pour into a small cup and start adding the toppings of your choice. I personally enjoy it with powdered milk and marshmallow bits.

*It tastes a lot better with the chocolate syrup but we opted not to include this anymore since it might be too sweet already for some of the kids.

Step 6: ENJOY! :)

From the Filipinos to you! Enjoy this yummy treat! The kids had so much fun making it and eating their hard work! I promise it tastes better than it looks! :)
