Let’s prepare our condiments:
First, you need to cook your sago, we need a half cup of big raw sago and cook in 1 liter of boiling water for 20 minutes.
Drain, rinse several times, soak in water and keep chill for at least 8 hrs.
Reboil for 15 minutes, and leave sago covered for another 30 minutes.
Rinse and soak in water, and it’s ready to use.
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.
Let’s make our Buko Pandan with Sago:
In a large bowl, pour in chilled Alaska Crema-Asada, evaporated and sweetened condensed milk and stir until well blended.
Add in, cooked gulaman, sago and coconut meat strings and mix well.
Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
Let’s prepare our Whipped Cream:
In a mixing bowl, combine ½ cup frosty whip cream powder, ½ tsp pandan extract and ½ cup cold water.
Let the powder soak for a sec. and whip on medium until frothy, then whip on high until double in volume and soft peaks form.
Assemble Buko Pandan with Sago:
In a tall glass or plastic cups, fill cups at least 2/3’s full of buko pandan salad, add pandan whipped cream on top and fresh coconuts.
