If you’re traveling in the Philippines, coconut-based souvenirs are a staple! You don’t have to stop at the big supermarkets in Manila to buy food-based souvenirs in Puerto Galera. Introducing Coconut Milk Powder, an essential ingredient in cakes, puddings and other desserts and Asian curries.
It’s a coconut milk powder from a manufacturer called “Fiesta”. I bought a box of 150g at the market “CANDAVA” in the center of Puerto Galera for 55 pesos. The small ones cost 21 pesos for a 50g bag.
Fiesta is another manufacturer that puts out a lot of other food products. I’m sure you’ll see them in supermarkets a lot.
It looks like this when you take out the contents. This is an unsweetened coconut powder.
As a fussy person, I often make and eat a simple coconut milk pudding using coconut powder. MR. GULAMAN” in the photo is powdered agar. It costs 10.75 pesos for a 25g bag. This is also cheap!
You can do simple things with powdered agar, coconut milk powder, milk and sugar! I think the coconut powder is easier to use if you shake it well before using it. Transfer to a dish and chill in the refrigerator when the heat is removed.
Cow’s milk story. They also sell Nestle milk in Puerto Galera, but apparently it makes me sick… So, I always use Coffee mate, a cream powder, as a substitute.
If there’s room in your suitcase, how about one souvenir to take home with you? This was an introduction to the very Filipino coconut milk powder!See more articles in English
