Saba con Yelo is a easy refreshment in the Philippines. It is made with Saba bananas, which are commonly found in parts of Asia, especially the Philippines. The dish is similar to minatamis na saging except the crushed ice on top is popular in the summer. Some people have a difficult time making their bananas tender. The only solution to this is to make sure the bananas are ripe before using them. Unripe plantain bananas can be used. They are a little tougher, however.
