Enjoy Thai milk tea at home with Jelly G

Despite the increasing frequency of rain showers in the metro, the times when the sunshine peeks through the clouds are the instances when we need something sweet and refreshing to quench our thirst, right?

Have you ever tried Thai milk tea? Unlike the more prevalent boba milk teas, Thai milk teas have actually been around a lot longer, have a myriad of health benefits and are also available in wondrous variety.

Elait’s Artisanal Rolled Ice Cream at the Ayala Museum

My daughter #ExhibitA and I took advantage of the Ayala Museum’s #InspireEveryday campaign and were able to score free admission to the museum and the Filipinas Heritage Library.

After roaming the museum’s various exhibits across three floors and the library at the sixth floor, we rewarded our art and culture-driven physical exertions with some happiness in a cup – artisanal rolled ice cream – at the pop-up store of Elait at the museum’s ground floor.

Rolled ice cream or stir-fried ice cream is also known as “I-Tim-Pad” in Thailand where it was first popularized as a street food.  It is made by pouring the ice cream base onto a steel plate chilled to below freezing, mixed with fruit, coffee, chocolate or other flavorings.  The mixture is chopped and stirred using a metal spatula as it crystallizes, spread flat across the metal plate, then carefully scraped off to form stiff rolls.  The rolls are then arranged on cups then topped with fresh fruit, candy, nuts and other garnishes.

Available variants in the pop up store consist of classic favorites like Chocolate Overload and Blueberry Cheesecake, and exciting new combinations such Mango Kiwi Pavlova and Chocnut Dinosaur.

ExhibitA opted for Blueberry Cheesecake, which evolved from a splat of ingredients on the metal plate to a grand masterpiece.

Being a chocoholic, I opted for Chocolate Overload which took shape right before my eyes.

These frozen treats were prepared and served by Elait’s deaf-mute partners who received our order using their very efficient order form and whom we thanked using basic sign language.

And by following Elait on Instagram, we were able to score additional toppings for our rolled ice cream!
