Sweet Green (Mung) Bean Soup

by Shara Ng
From: WaterMelon

"A perfect dessert for an Oriental meal. Sometimes i just drink it as a snack. Very fragrant due to the coconut milk. I've even poured it into a popsicle mold and ended up with a sweet bean popsicle! Refreshing and low in fat (without the coconut, anyway *grin*)!"
