Buko Pandan, is a very popular Filipino Dessert. It is made of young coconut fruit and gelatin flavored screwpine leaves locally known as, "Pandan". It is similar to buko salad due to the texture and the dairy being used. Very easy to prepare and it's delicious. Have you eaten this delicious food?

The flavor combination is getting very popular, looks like they were made for each other. Lots of foods here have buko-pandan flavor from ice cream, to cupcakes. Juice, sago drink, etc...
