Iced Coffee with Nata de Coco and Kaong
For those who are not familiar with nata de coco, it is the coconut gel preserve that we generally include when we make salads, like fruit salad. This is made out of coconut but is in heavy syrup. It is a chewy, translucent jelly-like food that is most commonly sweetened as candy or dessert. Nata de coco is highly regarded for its dietary high fibre and its low fat and cholesterol content. You can find this in the market sold in bottles in heavy syrup. In this recipe,we will just use the coconut gel itself, not the syrup.
Nata de Coco
Kaong is the sweet sugar palm that we also include in making fruit salad. It has a variety of colors when sold in the market but what we are going to use is the white kaong. Like nata de coco, we will just use the kaong itself, not the the syrup.
