Sweet Potato Sweet Soup, 蕃薯糖水, is a Chinese classic winter dessert. It is popularly known with a sweet ginger soup base, cooked sweet potatoes and some people like to add Tongyuan.
I have the idea to make this hot soup into a cold dessert, which is equally delicious and much more refreshing! See the bottom layer? It is a layer of sweet potato puree.
I also sprinkle some dried osmanthus on the top sweet soup layer to give extra aroma.
Additionally, two mini rice balls are the resemblance of Tangyuan. They are optional.
