es cendol -- oh, but it’s weird and it’s wonderful

I went to the Indonesian food fair in Duarte this morning, and -- in addition to a serving of gado gado -- had a delicious drink called "es cendol." The drink included ice cubes, pieces of jackfruit, and a bright green substance that reminded me of Gummy Bears, except softer. The person at the food stand said something about mung bean, but there must be more to the green substance than that. I’m hoping that elmomonster is reading this and can explain to me what goes into the green substance.
