I chance upon this easy peasy soup or dessert when I watched one of those Hong Kong cooking variety shows on TV many years ago. I made a few variations and this version can be easily done in about 15 minutes. I like the soothing effect of this warm soup. Sometimes if I'm having dry cough or slight sore throat, a bowl of this soup really helps to relieve the dryness, scratchiness or irritation in my throat. But of course, this tangy sweet soup can be served as dessert too ... any time of the day ^-^!
So, here's my sharing Green Apple & Aloe Vera with Honey Soup
Serves 2 - 3
2 green apples
200g - 250g aloe vera (if unable to find/buy fresh ones, use canned) * here, I'm using canned aloe vera.
800ml - 900ml water
1) Wash the green apples, cored, cut into small pieces or wedges. (peel or unpeel the apple skin is entirely your preference).
2) Pour water into a cooking pot and bring to boil. Add the green apples and aloe vera. Continue to boil on medium flame for 10 minutes. Off the flame.
3) Serves warm. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon of honey to the bowl of soup. Add more if you prefer more sweetness.
If you like to have a bowl of cold dessert, chill in the fridge for a few hours. Refreshingly tasty ! Enjoy and have a great day !
