Today, I will introduce you to a Korean summer dessert. Many people from YouTube requested this. It was amazing to see how many people know about this Korean dessert and love it. It is summer now and fortunately, I could find most of the ingredients for potbingsu in the Korean grocery store. Actually, I thought that at least one or two ingredients would be hard to get here, such as the crushed red beans and the special sticky rice cakes for potbingsu. My husband can tell you how happy I was when I saw them in the store. hehe … The ice with red beans, milk, fruits, rice cakes, and corn flakes give it good flavor. Of course, it is a very cool dessert for the hot summer days. Thanks!
Yield: 1 Serving
Short Korean Lesson
- Pot (팥) = Red Bean
- BingSu (빙수) = Crushed ice with sweet things
- 1½ Cup Crushed Ice
- ⅛ Cup Milk
- 3 Tbsp Red Beans for PotBingSu
- 2 Tbsp Condensed Milk
- 1 to 2 Tbsp Crushed or Chopped Pineapple
- 3 Tbsp Chopped Watermelon
- 2 Tbsp Sticky Rice Cakes for PotBingSu
- 1 to 2 Tbsp Corn Flakes
Grind some ice to get 1½ cup of crushed ice. It was the first time I tried my new KitchenAid blender, and it worked pretty good.
In a serving bowl or cup, add the crushed ice and ⅛ cup of milk.
Put 3 Tbsp of red beans for potbingsu on top of the ice.
Add 2 Tbsp of condensed milk on top of the red beans. The amount controls the sweetness.
Add 1 or 2 Tbsp of crushed or chopped pineapple. Add 3 Tbsp of chopped watermelon on top.
Add 2 Tbsp of sticky rice cakes for potbingsu.
Finally, add 1 or 2 Tbsp of corn flakes on top of everything.
It looks very colorful and cool. Before eating, mix everything together. This recipe will give you an authentic taste for this dessert, but you can adjust the recipe depending on your taste or preference. I hope you will like this Korean summer dessert.
