Filipino Nilupak Recipe

This is another merienda option. Nilupak is traditionally made with mashed kamoteng kahoy (yucca root), kamote (sweet potato) or saging na saba (banana). Here we’ll use saging na saba. Serves 4 to 6.


  • 15 cups saging na saba (banana), peeled and cubed
  • 2 cans condensed milk
  • 1 cup grated coconut
  • 4 teaspoons butter, melted

Cooking Directions

  1. Boil saba so they’re soft, but not soggy and mash them.
  2. In a skillet or wok over low heat, combine all ingredients and mix until blended.
  3. Serve on a platter or banana leaf and enjoy!
