Ginataang Pinipig

This is a recipe of a dessert made from green pinipig, taro root, saba bananas, sweet potatoes, langka and coconut milk. This dish is somewhat very similar to ginataang halo-halo which basically the ingredients are almost the same except the pinipig. You might wonder how is it that the pinipig is colored green because usually it is white because the rice is white. The reason is the green pinipig is pounded unripe rice.
