It finally rained yesterday, but today, the sun's power switch seemed to have turn into the highest volume again. But don't fret, the yummiest coolers are just around the corner. Now let me show you my favorite cool finds this summer time!
1. Halo-Halo at Fresh (Solaire Resort and Casino)
Summer is not complete without Halo-Halo. And Fresh's Halo-Halo sets apart from the traditional recipes because they use Pandan flavored ice as toppings. I simply can't get enough of this summer cooler because it reminds you of your childhood days. Nostalgia and beating the summer heat is the perfect way to spend this season.
2. Avocado and Vanilla Ice Cream with Pear at Misono
Misono restaurant is a Japanese Restaurant at Jupiter Street in Makati. Aside from their yummy sushi and sashimi, they also serve Avocado and Vanilla ice cream. Matched with pear, this dessert is light and healthy.
3. Strawberries and Cream at Strip Steakhouse (Solaire Resort and Casino)
This homemade dessert is absolutely perfect for me because of the serving of strawberries and dry meringue. Made from the freshest local ingredients, this dessert makes you feel like going to Baguio today. The Strawberries and Cream is what you should order after eating pork or beef, because fruits help you digest more.
4. Rainbow Dream by Magnum Manila
The Rainbow Dream consists of white chocolate covered vanilla Magnum bar. It is served with a slice of the cream cheese rainbow cake. Dessert overload? You should try this cooler because the vanilla goes well with the rainbow cake. It's not too sweet and definitely not too sinful.
5. Oreo Frappe from J.Co Donuts
J.Co is not just famous for its donuts, they also serve yogurt, and J.Coffee, their signature drinks. J.Coffee has a lot of flavors in its menu, but my favorite is the Oreo Frappe. This is sweet and salty at the same time and best served with their Al Capone or Glazzy donuts.
6. Strawberry Gelato at Finestra (Solaire Resort and Casino)
Finestra's Homemade Gelato has three flavors - Mascarpone, Nutella and Strawberry. Among the three, the strawberry became my first choice because it has my favorite pistachio nuts. You can't get wrong with this absolute Italian!
7. Chilled Osmanthus Flower and Wolfberries with Aloe Vera by Red Lantern (Solaire Resort and Casino)
I only have one word to describe this dessert - REFRESHING! This healthy drink is perfect for today's weather. And it is unusual to drink a flower right? It's fragrant and something new at the same time. Go get some now for this drink is only served during Autumn.
8. Mango Crepe by Cafe Adriatico
When I was invited at Cafe Adriatico, I thought that they only serve coffee and pastries. I didn't know that they have the sumptuous steaks and even crepes. It might just be your usual crepe, but I fancy that their mangoes are really fresh and perfect for the summer. I feel as if I'm back at Guimaras Island whenever I try this dessert.
9. Mango and Guyabano Ice Cream at Yakumi (Solaire Resort and Casino)
I love mangoes, but I didn't know that Guyabano is also flavorful when made into ice cream. I love how this dessert tastes like their real counterparts. Not only did I turned Japanese with these sweets, but I also not loved fruits more than ever.
10. Morelli's Gelato at EDSA Shangri-La Mall East Wing
This gelato place features a number of gelato flavors. My favorite is the New York Cheesecake because it's not too sweet, and their gelato is also very soft. My next one to try is the Caramel Dulce De Leche, as recommended by my boss.
