Inspired by one of my favorite childhood dim sum tofu pudding dessert, "Tau Huay", this refreshing gingery soy iced latte recreates the traditional flavor with an uplifting twist of salted whipped cream topping.

This is a quick and fun base recipe as you can derive many variations to accommodate various palates or occasion. Keep on reading to check out the fun variations suggestions.

The best part is you only need several common ingredients and the prep to cook time is less than 30 minutes!
