Tapioca Pearls with Orange Soup

Sabudana/Taipoca is a humble ingredient with loads of potential. It can adapt to different flavors and is a great platform for creative expression.

I decided to whip up a quick and easy dessert with a basic pantry while focusing on extracting the maximum from simple ingredients.

The result was a mouthful of fresh and citrus explosion 💥🍊!

Give this humble dessert a try and let me know what you think of it! Look forward to you trying my Tapioca Orange Therapy!

1/2 cup Tapioca soaked for 2 hours
2 cups fresh coconut milk

Zest of one orange

Cinnamon stick


  1. In a deep pan, boil the tapioca with the coconut milk and sugar on low flame
  2. Cook until the Tapioca is soft and cooked through
  3. Put it to cool
  4. In a pan, cook the orange juice with cinnamon for 10mins with zest on a slow flame. It should reduce but not become thick
