Sweet Bean Soup

I was never a big fan of this Chinese dessert, but mom says red bean is good for blood. Good blood = healthy me. Since it's not like some horrible bitter Chinese remedy, I can definitely deal with some sweet dessert for good health! For this soup, I added coconut milk. My yellow rock sugar pieces were WAY too big. I almost screwed up my can opener (don't ask) and I didn't have a hammer. So to add a little more sweetness, I used my favourite natural sweetness, honey. And damn, this was one of the better red bean dessert I have ever tasted! Kudos to me!
