This is a food recipe for beauty and for health purposes.  I believe that one have to care about what you put inside your body besides caring about what you apply on your face.  Your skin does show the amount of effort you care for yourself.  After all, glowing skin is not just a one night miracle =) .

So, here is the Asian secret for cooling down the 'heat' inside your body and on a hot warm summer.

This is the powder I used to make the 'cake'.  There are many imitation out there because it is really famous in Asia and it took me back to a Hong Kong drama that popularize this herbal tea.  It is really good for the health and cool down the body.

It has taraxacum mongolicum (dandelion), smilax glabra roxb (tu fu ling or sarsaparilla ), lonicera japonica (Japanese Honeysuckle) .  No turtles kill in the process.

Ingredient:
1 packet of Guilinggao chinese herbal jelly powder (make sure it is original as there are many imitation out there)
250ml of water

Instruction:
1.  Take out two spoon of water from the 250ml water.  Pour in the packet of the herbal powder into the two spoon of water and stir until it is well mix like the glue.  Then, pour the rest of water into the cup and stir again.

2.  Next, boil the mixture just now on the stove.  Use low heat.  Make sure to stir slowly until the mixture turn thicker like glue and then quickly turn off the heat.  (Don't stir until it harden like a lump of jelly)

3.  If you like it sweet, then add in about 20 g sugar into the mixture.  If don't, you can don't have to add in the sugar.  You can serve it with honey later on.

4.  Then pour the mixture into the mold for it to cool down.  Don't use plastic because it is going to be toxic and it is not good for consumption.

5.  Once it cool down, put it inside the fridge and serve it cold.


So, overall do you like it?  It is a fairly easy to make herbal recipe for health and for dessert.  It is actually slightly bitter so children may not like it for sure and we usually eat it with honey or with the plum sweet XP. I am used to the slight bitterness because there are other way bitter things that I have tried before.  It is like eating jelly but with traditional medicinal herbal taste =) .
