Halo-halo, officially spelled haluhalo, Tagalog for “mixed,” is a popular cold dessert in the Philippines made up of crushed ice, evaporated milk or coconut milk, and various ingredients. I encourage you to choose your own adventure, layering the elements in a tall glass or wide bowl. Make sure to use a long-handled spoon to reach everything, and for mixing and swirling.
