Es Teler (Indonesian Drunk Ice)

Though the name means 'drunk ice', there is no alcohol in this. I have' no idea why it's called 'drunk'!

Es Teler is a basically an iced dessert topped with tropical fruits such as avocado, coconut, jackfruit, and drizzle of condensed milk. It's called es kachang in Malaysia and es campur in Indonesia.

It's very similar to one of our Filipino favorites Halo-Halo (photographed above), which means 'mix-mix' in Tagalog. While all of those desserts use shave ice, we usually add even more tropical flair by using exotic ice cream flavor. For this es teler I opted for a black sesame and a young coconut ice cream.

  • ice cream or shave ice

  • avocado

  • tropical fruits (young coconut strands, jackfruit, lychee, ube)

  • condensed milk for serving

  • optional red or black beans, grass jelly cubes, tapioca balls

Layer your ingredients into a glass or spoon into individual serving bowls. Drizzle with condensed milk. Serve immediately.
