  • 1 can Grass Jelly, opened and chopped into small cubes
  • 1 cup white sugar + 1 cup water
  • 1 liter water or more
  • banana essence
  • lots of ice


  1. Make the Sugar Syrup: Dissolve the sugar in water over low heat. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a pitcher, combine sugar syrup, water, and grass jelly. Stir well.
  3. Add about 1/4 tsp banana essence. Make sure to add just a little, adding more makes the flavor overpowering.
