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 this dessert too but I cooked this with 2 fuji apples, honey rock sugar, and wolfberries w/o the red dates instead. And my mum cooked this with pear plus dried longan. All taste good..!! I’ll be cooking this with china pear (brown skin type) today and I shall try this with papaya someday. :)
