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 :)

    I love clear chinese desserts like what I’m looking at now. Unfortunately I don’t make them cos nobody in my family eats such things. How sad! For me, I mean!

    Does this papaya taste like those Malaysia orange-fleshed papaya or Hawaiian yellow-fleshed papaya? I have added not-so-ripe papaya (not those green papaya though) to savory soups before. It is tasty and we all know it is nourishing.


    • wiffy replied: — August 24th, 2010 @ 1:26 pm

      I think it tastes nothing like both. not sweet. can’t eat it on its own :p but good in soups and 糖水 :)
