  1. This looks delicious and refreshing.
    I’m wondering what you mean by “2 bars red gelatine”
    Can I substitute lychee jelly for it? 🙂

    1. Hi Dulce,

      First of all, thank you for your comment. Gelatin bars or agar-agar are store bought dry jellies. You boil them in water and let them dissolve then transfer in a container to cool down until it becomes soft jelly (these are tasteless). I haven’t tried using lychee jelly with it yet because I like the pure coconut taste when drinking this beverage. I added a photo in the recipe. I hope this helps.Don’t forget to rate us! Keep on cooking! 😉

    1. Hi Brian,
      It’s a traditional drink especially on Holy Week in Pampanga. Since, meat can’t be consumed during the Lenten season, this is a great substitute together with a variety of kakanin.
      Aside from being refreshing, what set’s it apart from most of the other samalamig is the use of coconut milk. Hope this helps. Thanks!
