My Jolly Ginataang Mais

Jolly Ginataang Mais

Summer is here.  The school year is almost closing. (and some elementary schools in the Philippines even started their summer vacation already) Wooohoo! I can almost hear you shout the word FUN. Well, what is fun without food?

Today, I am sharing a Filipino recipe that's perfect for the season~~ filling and nutritious and it is very easy to prepare: GINATAANG MAIS.

This is somewhat similar to Maja Blanca because they use common ingredients and they actually taste a bit the same.

Ginataang Mais has a porridgy-texture and is commonly prepared for breakfast or snacks, giving you the energy you need to jumpstart your activities for the day. During summer, kids and teens would usually be busy doing sports, join in art classes, camps, go to the beach and more -- this would be a great snack to come home to.

So here are the ingredients you need:

1 1/2 cup malagkit (glutinous or "sticky" rice)
1 1/2 cup Jolly Coconut Milk
1 1/2 cup Jolly Coconut Cream (Kakang Gata)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup Jolly Whole corn kernels


1. Pour the malagkit in the pot and mix with Jolly Coconut Cream and Jolly Coconut Milk. Let it boil. Constantly stir so it will not stick and burn. Add water from time to time to achieve desired consistency. Do this until the malagkit (sticky rice) is cooked.

2. Pour in the Jolly corn kernels, and simmer for 5 mins.
3. Add sugar to taste.
4. Serve and enjoy!

You may serve this with fruit juice, coffee or any beverage as you please.

How about you? Do you have summer recipes in mind that you'd like to prepare for family and friends? Share it, too and let's all have a well-spent vacation from the usual hustles of school and work. <3
