Whether it's to give your palate some respite from savory dishes or your tummy a soothing snack, there are some unique ice cream available that pay homage to the Philippines’ distinctive flavors.

The addition of carabao’s milk to the Magnolia Best of the Philippines Ice Cream Collection makes each spoonful a richly fulfilling experience, especially for those looking for a cool and creamy treat that is celebrates the best of what the Philippines has to offer.

Carabao’s milk, known for its rich flavor and creamy texture, is a flexible ingredient—not only is it used in ice cream, but in desserts such as pastillas and main dishes requiring dairy as well.

It also contains many nutritional benefits, such as being high in calcium and protein, and contains less cholesterol than other types of milk, said the Philippine Carabao Center. Use of carabao milk also supports local agriculture.

Take your pick from these ice cream flavors that can complement anyone’s favorite dishes: 

1. Taro White Cheese 

Those who want a soothing treat can get Magnolia's taro white cheese ice cream flavor. Dairy lovers can indulge in the light taste of taro, combined with the sweet and salty taste of white cheese, in ice cream made even creamier with carabao’s milk. 

Magnolia’s Taro White Cheese has a base of taro and white cheese ice cream blended with creamy white cheese bits. 

2. Avocado Macchiato

What's the better final course: a cup of coffee or a bowl of fruits? With avocado macchiato, one can enjoy both in a single serving. The smooth flavor of the avocado fruit tempers the bite of coffee, making this flavor the perfect treat after a savory meal.

The Avocado Macchiato flavor features avocado ice cream made with carabao’s milk. The creaminess of the avocado ice cream is complemented by the addition of ground tablea bits swirled with coffee ripple.

3. Tablea Yema
