My godsister Berni is craving pinoy food. But she is in snowy Milton, MA and has no access to fresh Philippine mangoes and freshly squeezed calamansi juice, and buko juice! :(
She told me to have some buko juice for her with some vanilla ice cream, and I told her, I'd have something non-dairy, like maybe coconut ice cream.
Here's what I came up with:
3/4 to 1 cup gata, kept in the fridge for 2-3 days*
1 tsp or more raw cacao (I guess you can grind yours but I wanted to keep the texture so I didn't grind these up)
raw honey or agave nectar to taste
soaked sunflower seeds - optional
freshly grated cinammon - optional
*I like it because it gets a little more dense in the fridge when I keep it this long
The question is, what shall I call it? It's not exactly coconut ice cream. And if I call it gata with cacao and raw honey it just sounds....wala... awkward. And long.
Come up with a name and I will reward you with 4 fresh bukos (only if you live in Metro Manila) or USDA organic, kosher-certified, Philippine-made VCO :D (if you live elsewhere). A great way to infuse electrolytes into your system! Metro Manilans can choose if they want the bukos or the VCO.
Use the kontactr form on the right. Subject line: Help me name this dessert!
Include your full name and exact delivery address. If applicable, please inform your lobby guard to accept condo deliveries.
I'll choose a winner by March 4th 2011. You don't have to be a raw foodist to join the contest. :D
