Pandan Grass Ice Jelly


This is the drink that I grew up with and now it has become my family favourite drink.

When I got to know that the Pandan is the theme for September Little Thumbs Up, the first thing that came to my mind was this Pandan Grass Ice Jelly and I told myself I wouldn’t want to miss it.

My mum taught me how to do this drink.  I remember she told me that grass jelly 仙草 has the properties of releasing heartiness from body and relieve stomach disorders.  

She said to include Pandan leaves because the Pandan fragrance will cause the grass jelly to turn into a flavourful and refreshing drink that best consumed during a hot weather or after strenuous sport training.

I have recorded every step that she taught me and here you go the recipe.  

Try it out!


1 pkt (480g)   Grass Jelly (仙草)cut into cubes
4 pcs               Pandan leave tie a knot
1 litre             Water
3 big               Rock Sugar (the sweetness will depend on
                        individual liking)


(1)In a pot, bring water, rock sugar and pandan to boil.  The longer you boil, the thicker the syrup will be when it is cooled.  For me, I boiled until bubbles is formed.

(2)Remove the pot from the heat, discard the pandan leave and let the syrup cool down in room temperature.  When it is cooled, pour into the jar and refrigerate.

(3)Cut the grass jelly into cubes.  In a clear glass, scoop 3-4 tbsp of grass jelly into it.  Add ice cubes and the pandan syrup to the amount you desire.  Top up water, stir it and Enjoy!

I’m feeling very excited as this is my very 1st post submits for Little Thumbs Up, which is hosted by Joceline from Butter. Flour & Me, at this post.  

This event is organised by Zoe from Bake for Happy Kids and Mui Mui from My Little Favourite DIY
