Coconut-Pandan Salad Recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups of chilled whipping cream
  • 1/3 cups of condensed milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon of pandan extract

  1. Prepare the gelatin according to the package directions. Let it set then cut into cubes.
  2. Prepare the small sago according to package directions. Once it looks transparent, set aside.
  3. Bring out your large bowl pour your whipping cream and whip it until it is thick and fluffy.
  4. Once you’ve done whipping the cream fold in the condensed milk, vanilla and pandan extract.

Notes on this recipe:

  • As an alternative to whipping cream, you can also use all-purpose cream.
  • If you do your groceries and market shopping at the supermarket like me, you’ll notice that the shredded young coconut will not be available.
  • As an alternative, you can purchase a desiccated coconut.
  • You can also make your own pandan gelatin. Just prepare the following ingredients:
  • 1 box of unflavored gelatin
  • (follow the instructions from the box then add in the last to items before it sets)
  • – Pandan extract
  • – Green food coloring
