Homemade Almond Cream 自制杏仁露-润肺止咳,调节血脂、防止动脉硬化,养颜等功效

Photo updated: 13 April 2017

Homemade Almond Cream - A tasty dessert that helps to nourish the lungs, lower cholesterol, good for skin complexion and many more benefits to our overall health.

This was in my 'to do list' since year 2004 after I tasted this homemade almond cream made by my friend. The first time I tasted it, I'm in love with it. Only the one made from scratch, not those made from store bought almond powder. 

Since then, I have been eating this dessert whenever I see it in the menu when I dine at Chinese restaurant. However, those served in restaurants are pricey and very small portion. Some were served with yam paste and gingko nuts...Ohh...the taste is SUPERB! My homemade version is not as fancy, I normally make plain one or added some tang yuan in it, yummylicious! 


This recipe yield concentrated and creamy almond cream.
If you like it more watery and diluted, add more water.
