With the wonderful weather we’re having in the greater Seattle area, dessert drinks are a must for a cool treat! Here are my top 5 that you can get right at Westfield Southcenter in Seattle Southside:
1. Halo-Halo at ChowKing
You definitely have to try this one! A traditional and probably the most famous, Philippine dessert, this sweet treat contains all the fixins’. Depending on, who makes it, Halo-Halo can always be made with different ingredients. ChowKing’s usually contains the following: sugar palm seeds, jackfruit, white beans, coconut, red mongo beans, plantains, ube (purple yam) jam, crème caramel custard, and ice cream! And then of course, your shaved ice , evaporated and condensed milk. All of the ingredients are layered. It’s up to you if you would like to mix them all up. I know it sounds pretty overwhelming, but it is truly a taste you will have to experience!
2. Green Tea Crème Frappuccino® Blended Crème at Starbucks
This is my go-to fave! This Frapp is a refreshing blend of sweetened Matcha green tea, milk and ice and topped with whipped cream. It’s not too sweet, but just right to satisfy your craving. If you still have a sweet tooth, add a chocolate cookie straw to finish it with a sweet crunch.
3. Taro Coconut Slush with Boba at Big Orange
This one is pretty hard to describe. Like with all my suggestions, you will just have to taste it to truly enjoy it! It’s creamy, a bit calming, and of course, it shares a touch of sweetness. If you don’t know what Taro is, it is actually a root vegetable, but how it’s blended with milk, coconut, and sweetener, it tastes like ice cream; delicious ice cream.
4. Chocolate Lava Cake Truffelata at Godiva Chocolatier
For all you chocolate lovers, this one is for you! This shake is literally blended with Godiva’s Chocolate Lava Cake Truffle – (dark chocolate liquid fondant with dark ganache inside a dark chocolate shell). Say that 10 times! It’s topped with fresh whipped cream and chocolate drizzle. Dark, rich, and so very chocolatey!
5. Avocado Milkshake with Boba at Big Orange
I know. You’re probably thinking, avocado? As in guacamole, avocado? Yes! Fresh avocado, blended with milk, sweetener, and ice. It’s delicious! All I can say is give it a try. If you like a creamy-type of shake, this will definitely hit the spot! The texture is similar to the Green Tea Frapp (hence, why I love this one so much, too)!
