Background

Besides getting rid of body heat, grass jelly aids in indigestion and decreasing blood pressure. As you can imagine, this drink is fantastic as it is! Moreover, it is really easy and fast to prepare.

In Malaysia, this other drink is nicknamed “Micheal Jackson” referring to his song “Black & White”. Coincidentally, the colours of the drink are exactly that! It looks attractive because of the contrast. This combination of soy milk and grass jelly drink is a favourite among the locals. Moreover, soy milk is a nutritious drink which contains fatty acids, proteins, fiber, vitamins and minerals.

Do substitute sugar with honey or agave syrup for a healthier version. Use fresh lychees instead of canned lychees.
