Serves 4

Ingredients 

  • 1/3 cup tapioca (small pearls)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk
  • 1 small pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1/2 cup whipped cream
  • 2 heaping tablespoons brown sugar
  • Toasted coconut for garnish

 

Directions

Soak tapioca pearls in milk for about 1-2 hours. In a non-reactive saucepot over medium-high heat, combine the tapioca with milk, coconut milk, salt, molasses, and brown sugar.


Cook, stirring constantly, for 5-7 minutes until mixture coats the back of a spoon. Tapioca will become clear and have no resistance when biting through a pearl. Put mixture over an ice bath and stir. When cooled, fold in whipped cream and serve in martini glasses. Garnish top with toasted coconut.
