  2. Cook the Bilo-Bilo

    • In a pot, pour 200ml water and 400 ml coconut milk and bring it to a boil on medium heat.
    • Once it starts boiling, add in sweet potatoes and cook for about 3 minutes stirring occasionally.
    • Next, add white sugar, glutinous rice balls, sweet plantains, jackfruit and the rest of the coconut milk in (400ml).
    • Allow it to simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, or until all fruits are tender and cooked.

     Chef's TIps: Tapioca pearls can be added for a chewier Bilo-Bilo in each bite. 

    Once the sticky rice balls float to the top of the surface, that means they’re ready.
