Papaya, Snow Fungus and Almonds Soup

Papaya, Snow Fungus and Almonds Soup Recipe

Check Out: Papaya Milk Recipe

Papaya, snow fungus and almonds soup (木瓜雪耳糖水) is a Chinese dessert which I tried at a famous dim sum restaurant in Hong Kong last month. When I tried the dessert, I thought this is something I can try to recreate at home since I have made something similar before – snow fungus with ginkgo nuts soup.  I thought the combination of papaya, almonds and snow fungus is really nourishing and beautiful.  This soup has health benefits such as improving blood circulation, strengthening respiratory system and improving complexion. I love to drink this dessert chilled.


This is the papaya I used for the recipe. Was surprised when I cut it open to find that it is yellow fleshed but it turned out still tasty in the dessert soup. I would have preferred orange flesh papaya though, I think the dessert will look prettier in orange :)

    You have great pictures! I just made snow fungus soup as well and took a picture but it turned out not appetizing at all. I’m inspired by your picture! Oh, it’s interesting you add pandan leaves. I have never tasted it before and was really curious!

    Is it alright if I leave out pandan leaves? I cannot find it at my place :/

      pandan adds fragrance to the dessert but you can omit it if you can’t find
