3 Recipes Using Hokkaido Fresh Milk

Hokkaido is well-known for its delicious dairy products, beautiful scenery and fresh seafood. In fact I still miss the Hokkaido Fresh Milk which I had couple of years back during my Japan trip. The good news is now you can find Hokkaido Fresh Milk without traveling to Japan.

Hokkaido Fresh Milk is as good on its own or you can pair it with breakfast cereal, granola, cakes and pastries or even use it to create quick desserts, bakes or even Japanese favourite "royal milk tea". In this article I will be sharing 3 fool-proof recipes which can be easily done in less than 20 minutes.

Pandan Yogurt Pudding

In terms of the word "pudding" it can be used to describe both sweet and savory dishes like "cheese pudding", "bread and butter pudding", "Christmas pudding" and etc. For this post, I will be sharing a a low fat pudding using plain yogurt to replace the usual cream or egg found in most pudding recipes. And it can be easily whip up in less than 10 minutes, after which pop them into the fridge and serve it with your desire toppings.


In order to make it an Asian flavour I added some pandan paste to achieve a lovely green and aroma for this dessert. And for those staying overseas like United States, Australia, Japan, Europe and etc where you cannot easily access to fresh Pandan Leaves, I will suggest you can stock up a bottle or two of the Pandan Paste from your local Asian grocery stores. As these lovely paste do comes in handy when you want to make some Asian delights such as Pandan Chiffon Cake, Pandan Waffle, Nasi Lemak Rice and etc.

AmaSoy Japanese Puddings With Collagen And Omega3 plus Giveaway

AmaSoy’s chilled soy pudding has been known for its incredibly smooth texture as well as quality ingredients made with 100% organic soy beans. Their newly revamp puddings comes with several refreshing changes like new flavours, new toppings, new packaging and now enhanced with Collagen and Omega3 (DHA). On top of that, AmaSoy is also being nominated as one of the top three favourite soy puddings by Singapore’s Favourite Foods 2013 (Favourite Food II) too.

Recently I have being hearing friends mentioning about AmaSoy's COLLAGEN puddings but I have never try it until two weeks ago when I loop them back from their ION branch. Out of the 5 flavours, my favourite are Matcha and Almond but if their Carmel taste is stronger I would also put it to my list too.

Above are some Japanese Soy Pudding from AmaySoy which comes in different flavour (some with toppings) such as; clockwise from top:- Almond, Original (with strawberry toppings), Matcha (using green tea powder imported from Kyoto Japan), Caramel (monthly special) and Mango (with mango cubes).

The "monthly special" and seasonal flavours are proposed by an in-house Japanese chef as well as fans’ suggestions on AmaSoy’s FaceBook.  So fans of AmaSoy’s can look forward to new toppings, which include red bean, peanuts, gingko nuts, lotus seeds, aloe vera, taro and etc in near future.

[AmaSoy Hokkaido Milk Drinks] Auzki (back) vs Matcha (front)
And apart from their soy pudding, recently AmaSoy also launched their new series of Hokkaido Milk Drinks by adding a new twist to the familiar favourites of soy milk drinks. The new drinks use premium milk from Hokkaido which adds extra flavour and silky creamy taste. Personally after trying three flavours, my favourite choice is still Matcha as it has a light and fragrance taste that blends well with the milk.

Soy Milk Beancurd Pudding

Lately there is a soy milk beancurd craze in Munch Ministry facebook page where some of the members shared and upload their homemade beancurd pudding. I really admired those ladies with innovative ideas in creating different types of flavour from the original recipes. And you just can't imagine how easy it is to make your own soy milk pudding with just 3 ingredients.

This type of Soy Milk Beancurd Pudding is different from the traditional soy milk beancurd that we used to purchase from the hawker center, foodcourt or Mr Bean. The recipe below is quite close to the popular "Lao Ban (老伴豆花)" beancurd pudding which has branches located at Old Airport Road and Maxwell Market.


Although there are quite a few version of this beancurd pudding recipes when you do a Google search. But if you want to read up for some information and try out different methods to suit your taste buds, you can read up more details over at Anncoo's "Soya Bean Beancurd Pudding" and  Misstamchiak's "Best Chilled Beancurd Pudding Recipe" where they used instant jelly powder instead of gelatine stated in the recipe shown below.

I have tried a a few combination on this recipe by either omitting the creamer or reduce the amount of gelatine used in order to find a perfect texture that suits our liking. So after a few experiment, we preferred those that is without creamer as we find the taste is already good enough even without the additional creamer. Whereas I also reduce the amount of gelatine from the original 2.5 teaspoons to 2 teaspoons as we prefer a wobbly and melt in mouth texture type of beancurd pudding. So it's all up to individual to twist and swap with the ingredients to make something that suits their preference.

Recipe adapted from Munch Ministry, Soft and Tender Chilled Beancurd, HERE.

(Serves: 2 | Preparation: 5 minutes | Chilling Time: 3 - 4 Hours)

500ml Vitasoy/Soy Bean Milk
2 Teaspoons of Gelatine Powder
15g of Creamer, optional

1. Heat up Vitasoy/Soy bean milk in a saucepan over low heat(do not let it boil).

2. Put gelatine powder in a small bowl, ladle about 50ml of the warm soy milk in it and stir till gelatine powder melt and well mixed.

3. Next pour the gelatine mixture into the remaining warm soy milk, stir stir in creamer if using and let it simmer for another 30 seconds(careful not to let it boil).

4. Off the heat. Let mixture cool off slightly before sieving it into prepared containers to cool completely.

5. Chilled mixture for at least 3 - 4 hours in the fridge before serving.

For other flavour such as:-

Almond ~ Use 15g of Almond Powder - 杏仁粉 (those instant almond powder that used to make almond drink) instead of creamer

(using YEO's Black Soy Milk)

When compared the above Vitasoy version with this Black Soy Milk Pudding, I personally prefer the taste and texture of the latest as I felt 2 teaspoons of gelatine work well with 500ml of soy milk to give that wobbly and smooth texture that I am looking for.

(Serves: 2 | Preparation: 5 minutes | Chilling Time: 3 - 4 Hours)

500ml YEO's Black Soy Milk
2 Teaspoons of Gelatine Powder
15g of Creamer

~ Refer to the steps above on the "Soy Milk Beancurd Pudding".

So if you are a fan that likes smooth and silky beancurd pudding such as those from "Lao Ban (老伴豆花)" or 51 Soya Bean then perhaps you could gather these easy ingredients to make your own beancurd puddings at home. Cheers!
