椰汁芋頭西米露 Taro Coconut Milk with Tapioca Pearls

Taro coconut milk can be served hot in the winter and cold in the summer.  For the hot summer days, a smooth and creamy chilled sweet soup like taro with tapioca pearls is the best treat.  A perfect finale to any summer meal and it’s quite easy to make.


  • 2.5 cups of taro, skin and diced
  • 6 cups of water (for taro)
  • 1.5 cups of tapioca pearls
  • 6 cups of water (for tapioca pearls)
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 1 cups of rock sugar
  1. Bring a pot of (6 cups) water to boil, stir in sago pearls, cover and cook for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat with the cover for 30 minutes or until the pearls turn translucent.  Rinse with cold water and set aside.
  2. Bring a pot of (6 cups) water to boil, add taro, then reduce the heat to medium-low, simmer for about 15 minutes or until softened.  Add coconut milk and sugar, stirring until sugar dissolve.  Bring to a boil and stir in tapioca pearls until well combined.
