Top 10 Quarantine Pinoy Merienda
To give you a bit of information, merienda is actually a Spanish legacy. Filipinos adopted this culture to their Spanish colonizers who lived in the Philippines for over 500 years. It’s not surprising that we got so many traits from the Spaniards as we were colonized that long.
However, during these days the current Pinoy merienda are influenced by a lot of countries too. For instance, most of our sweet merienda came from the Chinese people. And most of our baked mariendas came from the European countries. Given these influences we got from them, we still managed to do our snacks in our own creative and Pinoy-style way. Check out the list of merienda you can do below!
1. Dalgona Coffee Ice Cream Cake
Dalgona Coffee is one of the first merienda topic that went viral on Facebook. As a result, a lot of Filipinos tried this easy recipe at home which instantly became a favorite merienda. Moreover, the Dalgona Coffee recipe developed and created a lot of different versions. For instance, the milo dalgona coffee and the strawberry dalgona coffee.
Since the exploration didn’t stop, a new recipe is born. And this is the Dalgona Ice Cram Cake. Sounds really yummy!
2. Minatamis na Saging
How can we forget the traditional minatamis na saging by our grandparents in the province?
Growing up, I used to have this Pinoy merienda while staying at our grandparents farm house every summer vacation. As a result, minatamis na saging became one of my childhood favorite meriendas.
Moreover, minatamis na saging has a very easy recipe and only few steps to make it. Try serving this merienda at your home’s table fresh from the refridgerator!
3. Chocolate Milo Cake (No Oven)
Nowadays, no-oven and no-bake recipes are becoming popular and popular. This is because most Filipino homes are not accustomed into having ovens yet which is why these kinds of recipes are trending.
This kind of merienda will surely get the excitement rushing up since its recipe includes one of our most favorite chocolate drink in the Philippines which is Milo. Very filipino!
4. Ginataang Mais
The ginataang mais – another famous and traditional merienda that most 90’s kids can relate.
