Kolak Pisang consists of sweet potatoes, yam, cassava, plantain, and palm seeds that are served in creamy sweet coconut milk as dessert. kolak, kolak pisang, indonesian dessert, bananan in coconut milk

These are how some of the ingredients look like.  They come in many brands and under $3 each.  You can skip these ingredients except the coconut milk.

Kolak pisang can be served cold or warm.  My favorite is the warm Kolak, perfect for this cold January weather.

Happy Cooking !
