  • Yield: 3 - 4 Adults 1x


A light and refreshing Chinese dessert soup that is usually served in hot weather, to soothe and nourish the throat.


  • 1L water
  • 2 small red apples (or 1 medium or large size apple)
  • 1 pc dried snow fungus, soaked
  • 4 red dates
  • A handful of dried longans (optional)
  • 55g rock sugar


1.  Bring the water to a boil in a pot.

2.  Drain the snow fungus and cut away the hard part. Cut the softer parts into smaller pieces (about 4-6 pcs).

3.  Add all ingredients into the water. Once it has come to a boil, bring down to a simmer for around 30-40 mins.

4.  Add rock sugar and stir to dissolve. Serve warm, or chilled.


Recipe adapted from Nyonya Cooking.

If you prefer a sweeter soup, you can add about 70g of rock sugar instead.

For a crunchier snow fungus, boil the soup for about 25-30 mins. If you prefer a slightly thicker soup and soft snow fungus, boil for about 40-45 mins.
