A relative introduced this to me when I was in Singapore not long ago. I really loved the texture of this delicious drink and she gave me a packet for me to make here in the U.S. Her husband got it in Taiwan, so I am not sure whether I can find this in the U.S. or any where in Malaysia. You just have to ask around or search online. If you can find it, make it a regular drink as this drink is great for women, hello collagen, will keep your face looking beautiful and young! ;) Not only that, as it is also rich in mineral and a natural alkaline food, any health food in my dictionary is a great food to have in your refrigerator. I keep this refrigerated, you can also keep it frozen. Thanks CK and Angie for introducing me to this fantastic drink. :-*
2 cubes of Sea Bird's Nest, 海燕窝
10 red dates
10 dried longan
Black cane sugar bar to suit (can be purchase at Asian supermarket)
In a medium size pot, add in (A), turn the heat to high and let it boil. Then, turn to low and let it simmer until the 海燕窝 is dissolved and the dried longans are soften. Add in black cane sugar bar to taste. About 30-45 minutes. Lastly, you can add some dried Wolfberries/Goji berries too (optional).
After that, remove from heat and add in ice cubes. Stir. For best result, once cool, put the whole pot in the refrigerator for about 2 hours. Serve cold!
