Tapioca Drink

So,the first time I made this,I was craving some Tapioca but in the form of a drink and not pudding. I searched for a recipe but could not find any so I went into the kitchen and let my heart guide me. I made it first as you would make the regular pudding type then blended it with some milk. The 2nd time I made it,I decided to add some caramel and candied ginger,that’s why the drink is not white as would be if using just milk. You can use fresh ginger too,I just prefer to use candied ginger in my drinks.I used Tapioca flour for this but you can use the ones sold in lumps,just crush it as much as you can before cooking it.

You will need

200 g Tapioca flour

Shredded Coconut (dried or fresh)

10 Tbsp Sugar(or to your taste)

About 2 inch ginger or 12 thin slices of Candied Ginger or less if you don’t like a very gingery drink

1 L Water

1 L Milk (more or less to get the consistency you want)

Dissolve the tapioca flour in the 1 L of water

Add your coconut,use as much or as littles as you want.

Cook stirring consistently until you get a thick translucent paste

 Add your Sugar and taste,adjust as needed.You can always add more at the end.

Blend in your ginger and caramel if using

Tapioca + Candied Ginger + Coconut Add the milk while blending until you reach the consistency you want.

Taste and adjust whatever needs to be adjusted.

Chill completely. Best served cold.

 Enjoy!
