Luk Chup

Luk chup is a beautiful – yet easy-to-make – Thai dessert which tastes delicious and smells really fragrant. Its unique characteristic lies in the fact that its shape and color imitates those of fruits and vegetables in nature. Luk chup are beautifully decorated and are a well-known favorite among Thais and foreigners alike.

Luk chup contain large amounts of ground beans and provide various kinds of essential amino acids that can act as a substitute for protein derived from animal products. It derives its sweet taste from the sugar and coconut milk used in its preparation. However, the use of coconut milk, which has a nutty flavor, helps to offset the sweetness of the sugar base. Most importantly, this dessert provides the body with energy, carbohydrate and protein.
