How to make Buko Pandan Sago’t Gulaman
Buko Pandan Sago’t Gulaman Recipe – Based on the news, summer heat is really hot and we need to stay cool. And aside from wearing caps and sunglasses, and using sunblock, there are other ways to fight off the heat. You can do so by making yourself a pitcher of Buko Pandan Sago’t Gulaman Drink. Buko Pandan has a lot of varieties of dishes but the main component of it, Buko Pandan, originated in Bohol which later on just spread all across the country.
This drink is found on top of my list for best summer drinks. Not only does it have the right amount of sweetness, but it is so cold that it freshens you up. However, more than just the taste, I recommend this drink because of its nutritional benefits. Coconut milk, one of the ingredients of the drink, is rich in lauric acid; Lauric Acid is a compound that strengthens our immune system-making it perform better in warding off diseases. There’s also a lot of minerals in it like Potassium, Magnesium and Iron.
In making Buko Pandan Sago’t Gulaman Drink, you will have to use Coconut Juice. Coconut Juice is very good for re-hydrating our body. This is actually why a lot of runners or people who exercise would drink Coconut juice after their activities, so they can easily re-hydrate. I won’t have to worry about getting dehydrated, thanks to this.
Like the other dishes on this site, the Buko Pandan Sago’t Gulaman is no exception to simple recipes. I know this is something many of you would appreciate because all you need to do is heat some stuff, chill, cut, mix and wait-that’s it!

- Reboil for 15 minutes, and leave sago covered for another 30 minutes.

For the Gulaman:
- We’re going to cook a firm gulaman but if you prefer a softer gulaman adjust and add more water needed.
But for this recipe, we need 1(25g) sachet of pandan flavored gulaman, 3½ cups of water and 1/3 cup of sugar.
Combine in pot and stir until gulaman powder and sugar dissolved. Bring to a boil, while stirring continuously and pour it in any container and let it cool down.
Chill and cut into cubes and set aside.
Let’s prepare our Coconut:
- Scrape coconut meat from the shell using a coconut scraper, try to avoid the brown bottom part as possible as you can.
- If fresh coconuts are not available, you can use a frozen coconut, but you have to thaw it first before using.
