  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!

  2. This looks like the origins of Starbuck’s pink drink. Phillipines should get more credit for the popular drink!
