Today is the day you’ll make patbingsu
Oh yes. THAT Korean dessert. The time has indeed come because you feel that the experience of eating Korean meals at home is never complete without eating this delectable treat. Besides, who would say no to eating a chewy, crunchy, and creamy goodness to cap off a very lovely lunch or dinner? Especially now that it’s summer time? Only a crazy one.
Let’s start with this beautiful list of ingredients:
- Ice (1 tray/bowl)
- Sweetened Condensed Milk
- Sweetened Azuki Red Bean Paste
- Matcha Powder
- Fruit Cocktail
- Ddeok/Mochi/Rice Cake
- Ice Cream
- Shaved Ice Machine
One of the great things about making patbingsu is that you have the freedom to make it the way you want it. You can choose whatever flavor of ice cream you want, or fruits that you want to put in. You can event leave out certain ingredients all together…it’s all up to you!
Once you have that beautiful mountain of shaved ice in a bowl, you can start putting in the sweetened condensed milk to make the patbingsu just as creamy as you want it to be.
The next ingredient that you can add is the red bean paste and matcha powder for some added flavor and color.
Lastly, put in the fruits, sticky glutinous rice and the ice cream of your choice.
Voila! You now have your patbingsu which you should eat right away before it becomes too soupy.
