behind the name
Halo-Halo, from the Tagalog word, “halo,” meaning, “mix,” is a sweet Filipino dessert that offers a welcome respite from the relentless summer heat. The treat is made with red mung beans, boiled kidney beans, coconut jelly, coconut meat, and jackfruit, topped with shaved ice, evaporated milk, leche flan, and ube (purple yam). Each ingredient has a distinct texture and flavor, and adds to the overall deliciousness of the dessert!
Shop Halo Halo is a pop-up bakery owned and operated by Geleen Abenoja, a 1st generation Filipina-American born and raised in the Pacific Northwest with an enormous sweet tooth and a deep love of her Filipino roots.
Shop Halo Halo sells a "mix mix" of handmade Filipino goods and sweets! The popular Filipino dessert is reflective of my goal to provide a mixture of distinct and unique handcrafted items that come together effortlessly.
