A refreshing dessert with just a few main ingredients (dried longan, white fungus, red dates and ginkgo nuts) added, this soup can be served hot or cold according to your preference.

Watch the video guide below:


Ingredients A

  • 2 L water
  • 3 pandan leaves, knotted
  • ¼ cup dried red dates, remove the seeds
  • ¼ cup white fungus
  • ¼ Luo Han Guo

Ingredients B

  • ⅛ cup dried red dates, remove the seeds
  • ¼ cup dried longan
  • ¼ cup ginkgo nuts
  • Rock sugar, to taste

To prepare the white fungus, soak the white fungus in water for 10 mins, remove the hard part. Then, soak overnight in the fridge to give the white fungus a softer texture. (If you had forgotten to do so, you need to soak it for at least one hour before use.)


Break open the luo han guo using a mortar and pestle.


Place all ingredients A in a big pot to boil, then simmer on low heat for an hour.


Discard the luo han guo, pandan leaves and red dates.


Add all the ingredients B and continue simmer for 30 mins.


Add rock sugar to taste. Serve.
