Directions

  1. Prepare the ingredients

    • Dice the coconut meat into 3mm pieces.


  2. Make tapioca pearls

    • Put the diced coconut pieces in a large bowl. Pour 200ml water in a clean sprayer, then slightly wet the coconut.

    • Add 1 tbsp tapioca starch in the bowl, with your clean hands mix well so that the starch covers the coconut. Shake the bowl evenly. Repeat the above steps until the tapioca starch is all used. If the pearls stick together, gently separate them with your hands.

    • Strain out and remove any clumps.
    • You can use vegetable juices or coffee instead of the water in Step 2 to make the pearls more colorful.
    • For larger pearls, cut the coconut meat to a larger size.
    • Use pearls as toppings for your yogurt bowl, fruit salad, smoothies or bubble tea.

  3. Boil the tapioca pearls

    • Boil water in a pot on high heat. When it’s boiling, turn down the heat to medium and gradually add the pearls in.

    • Using a strainer spoon, slightly stir the pearls to avoid them sticking to each other. Cook until they turn translucent and float on the water surface. Turn off the heat.

    • Let the pearls rest in the pot for 10 minutes. Strain and place them in a cold water bowl in 2 minutes.



  4. Season the tapioca pearls

    • Strain the tapioca pearls and put in another bowl. Add 30g sugar and mix well until the sugar dissolves.


Assemble & Serve!

  • Assemble the pearls in a dessert glass, add ice and one or two drops of jasmine flavor extract (optional).
