Fruits on ice? Healthy right?

Bingsu, also known as “the Korean halo-halo”, is one of the most popular desserts in the metro today. A number of cafes have popped out in the last few years and we see no signs of it stopping. Competition is stiff with a lot of the newer ones offering more than just the traditional flavors.
