Nata De Coco Mango Pudding 椰果芒果布丁


Nata de coco is chewy, translucent and the texture is similar to jelly that is produced by the fermentation of coconut water. Originated in the Philippines, nata de coco is most commonly used in sweetened desserts and it pair perfectly with pudding, ice cream and fruit cocktails.




In this recipe, I paired it with mango pudding. Why? because it taste really good and adds a nice chewy texture to the creamy pudding. 

This recipe was adapted from here. I adjusted the recipe to yield softer and creamier pudding. If you like pudding that can be un-mould, click here to get the recipe. If you love creamy pudding that serves right in the cup, you may continue to read and try out this recipe. ;)

Cantonese Dry Fried Prawns aka Har Lok In Huiji Waist Tonic Sauce 广式干煎药膳虾碌 - Product Review



"I am not a fan of herbal tonic." That's what most youngsters and those in their 20s would say.  When you're getting older, especially women after 30yo, eventually, your body will alert you with some common symptoms such as backache, knee pain, muscle stiffness, fatigue, numbness, grey hair and so on. This is the time you need some tonic to get your 'engine' working properly. 





You may have heard of this, one of the popular herbal tonic in town - Huiji Waist Tonic that's made in Singapore from a GMP certified factory. This tonic helps to strengthen the body and waist, relieve aches in the waist and knee, improve blood circulation, nourish and darken hair. It's a ready-to-consume tonic and it's free from preservatives, artificial colouring and flavouring.




Apart from drinking the tonic as suggested 20ml twice a day, actually I would preferred to add it in my cooking, it taste really good in dishes! Unlike most TCM, Huiji Waist Tonic isn't bitter at all although there's no cane sugar added in it. It is mild in nature and fragrant in scent that makes it perfect to be added in cooking or just drizzle the tonic in soup or steamed dishes to enhance the flavour. By adding the tonic in dishes, it elevate the taste and at the same time, the family gets to enjoy the benefit of Cordyceps, Ginseng, Du Zhong, Dang Gui, He Shou Wu and Da Zao by consuming the delectable home cooked food.
