How to Make Homemade Pandan Extract | 2-Ingredient Easy Recipe


  • 15-20 Pandan Leaves frozen works almost as good
  • 3/4 Cup Water


  • Wash your Pandan leaves thoroughly. Pandan leaves are fresh like my homegrown ones, the dirt is usually towards the bottom of the leaves. If you use frozen Pandan leaves which can be obtained at most Asian stores, I recommend washing them as well after thawing.
  • Best way to cut into small pieces is by using a scissor.
  • Depending on the size of your Pandan leaves, add 15-20 leaves to your blender.
  • Add ¾ cup of water and blendthoroughly. 
  • Use strainer or cheese cloth to strain the Pandan juice.
  • After 24 hours, most of the chlorophyll has settled to the bottom. Pour out the water on top very slowly.
  • The leftover after you pour outthe water is your Pandan Extract.
  • Keep refrigerated.  Use up within 7 days.
