KL Selangor MFF - Petaling Street Lohanguo Longan Drink Copycat

Love this refreshing and cooling dessert. For hot days we are having here, this is a real thirst quencher. It is super cooling, so good!



There is only 5 ingredients for this recipe. It is so easy to prepare.but you have to be patient, it takes 2 hours plus 1 hour and another 10 minutes before you can enjoy this dessert to the fullest. (I read in Alice's blog she mention something like this too..lol) 


I cook this dessert for the second time...why?? I burnt the winter melon  soup for the first attempt. I set the pot of winter melon with water added to the hob to cook. Then i went to pick my kids from school. Later ......you know what happens :p
It is really worth going for the second attempt, this dessert is really so good ..despite the sweetness...i just add more ice ..lol
