Since strawberry is in season you can find them in leading grocery stores like SM Hypermarket, Landmark, Rustans and SnR.

In this recipe you can use any fruits you prefer. I’m thinking melon, kiwi and caramelize bananas will do too, so do not limit yourselves with just this two fruits.

I’m a fan of “gata” or coconut milk and I’ve tried mostly all coconut milk in cans sold at supermarkets but none of them have become my favorite, I always ended up buying a freshly squeezed coconut milk in our local wet market.

Since Jolly came out with their coconut milk I just thought I should give it try.  Jolly’s coconut milk has a freshness and natural sweetness very near to what I can buy at our local wet market.
