1 13.5 oz can coconut milk
1.5 c milk
1/3 c sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c mini pearl tapioca (90 grams)
1/2 c fresh strawberries, sliced (or fresh fruit of your choice – blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)


  1. add the coconut milk, milk, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla extract to a small pot. stir and bring to a boil – watch it closely so the liquid doesn’t boil over. once it boils, immediately take it off the heat. let the mixture cool slightly, and put it in the refrigerator to chill. (this step can be done ahead of time.)
  2. in a pot, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. add the mini pearl tapioca (don’t add these before the water is at a full boil !) stir and bring it to a boil again. turn off the heat, cover it with a lid, and set your timer for 18 minutes. after 18 minutes have elapsed, the pearl tapioca should turn completely transparent, which means they’re fully cooked. strain the pearls, rinse them with cold water to prevent them from sticking, and set aside.
  3. divide the prepared coconut milk soup into bowls, then divide the pearl tapioca. top with your fresh fruit and serve !
