Eat your avocados with condensed milk to try the Filipino dessert trend on TikTok

  • TikTok user @anna..paull shared a now-viral video of herself trying a Filipino dessert made of avocado, ice and condensed milk.
  • Filipino families have their own variations of this dessert, with some preferring to finely grind their ice in a blender or mash their avocados for a less chunky consistency.

One of TikTok’s latest viral food trends is a dessert that’s widely consumed in the Philippines, made with avocado, condensed milk and ice.
