have you eaten "halo-halo" without sugar?

I have. One day I just felt like eating "halo-halo," a specialty among Filipinos but sometimes they are too sweet because they usually put condensed milk which is very sweet already, plus sugar, plus the fruits which are also sweet, so you get to eat something which is overly sweet. So one day, I bought some halo-halo but instructed the salesgirl not to put any sugar and to just put a pinch of condensed milk. Voila! I had my halo-halo without sugar and with just a pinch of condensed milk. I got my purpose of quenching my thirst without raising my blood sugar level. Have you also done this? Please share your own halo-halo story.

I always have my halo-halo sugarfree, except of course when it comes to fast food like Chowking; no matter how I tell the server not to put sugar in it they still put sugar. Anyway, good thing that everyone in my family likes it so they're just more than too happy to have mine.

On some occasions, I had. Usually when the fruits are sweet enough. Sometimes the coconut gel does the trick. These can already sweeten the halo-halo. If you like adding ice cream, that also makes it sweet already. But I haven't eaten this treat with condensed milk. Personally, it ruins the traditional taste of halo-halo. Since I was a kid, I've been used to having evaporated milk added to it :)
