Soy Milk Kanten & Simple Kanten

Soy Milk Kanten & Simple Kanten

A healthy dessert with kanten. It's perfect as a snack when you're dieting. The instructions are very easy to follow.

Ingredients: 14x5x5 cm tofu mold, 2 molds

Simple version
Stick kanten
1/2 stick (4.5 g)
Water
300 ml
Carmel or vanilla syrup, as needed
A little
Soy Milk Kanten version
Stick kanten
1/2 stick (4.5 g)
Water
150 ml
Soy milk
150 ml
Condensed milk
1 tablespoon (I used non-fat)
Amaretto (optional)
A little

Steps

1. Soak the kanten in a generous amount of water. Squeeze out the water, and cut into pieces.
2. For the Simple version, heat 300 ml of water and the kanten. After it comes to a boil, cook for 2 to 3 minutes over low heat.
3. After it has cooled down, add the flavors you'd like. Strain the mixture and pour into the mold.
4. For the Soy Milk version * Preparation: Measure the amounts of soy milk and condensed milk.
5. Heat "150 ml" of water and the kanten. After it comes to a boil, cook for 2 to 3 minutes over low heat.
6. Remove from heat. After cooling a bit, mix in the condensed milk. Add the soy milk gradually, and mix well with a wooden spatula.
7. After it has cooled down, add the flavors you'd like (I recommend amaretto). Strain the mixture and pour into the mold.
8. For either version, chill in the refrigerator until it sets. Serve with kuromitsu, kinako, black beans or fruit.
9. It will become firm when set. The simple version has no sugar, so the water will separate easily. I recommended eating this as soon as possible.
10. For homemade kuromitsu brown sugar syrup, see Recipe ID: 1177934.
