Summer Dessert Edamame Milk Kanten

Summer Dessert Edamame Milk Kanten

Fresh kanten with a look and taste that's perfect for summer. Through trial and error I finally came up with this recipe. There's a double and triple-layered version for serving to guests as well.

Ingredients: 800-900 ml

250 g
10 g
200 ml
600 ml
(sweet) 150 g
a pinch


1. The kanten container I used. With water it holds 800 ml.
2. Divide up your edamame into Decorative (top in the picture) and Main (bottom in the picture). De-skin the Decorative edamame. If you don't they'll float up when you pour the liquid in.
3. Place the Decorative edamame in the container.
4. Add the Main edamame and the ■ ingredients to a blender and mix well.
5. Add Step 4 to a pot, then add the kanten and dissolve.
6. Pour into the container, then chill in the refrigerator and it's complete.
7. Dual-Layered Version: for the upper layer use 250 g of edamame, 5 g of kanten, 100 ml of milk, 250 ml of water, 75 g of sugar, and a little salt. For the lower layer use 400 ml of milk, 5 g of kanten, 75 g of sugar, and a little vanilla extract. Once the upper layer sets pour in the lower layer.
8. Triple-Layered Version: making it was a bit difficult, but it was really delicious.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to recreate the edamame kanten I had at a department store and couldn't forget. I tried making it many times and finally perfected this recipe.
Please try the dual-layered or triple-layered versions as a dessert for guests.
