Fruity Snow Fungus Soup (Mango, Kiwi)
This fruity snow fungus soup (鲜果雪儿糖水) is made up of the basic snow fungus soup recipe and fruits, specifically mango & kiwi. Last week, we had snow fungus soup almost every day. I took the chance to update the original recipe posted 10 years ago (how time flies!) with ingredients, step-by-step photos, and tips on selecting good quality fungus. Eating the same dessert daily was not boring, in case you are wondering, since I made small variations each time. Like in this case, with the base snow fungus soup, just adding two types of cubed fruits enhanced the aesthetics & taste of this dessert.
The sweet mango and the slightly tangy kiwi offer a harmony of contrasting flavours which complement the mildly sweetened snow fungus “tong shui” (糖水/Chinese sweet soup). This is too pretty!
This is my pot of snow fungus soup bubbling away when it is almost complete.
