"Enjoy this easy to make, goes great with any type of bevrage, gives any bevrage a great sense of texture, and if you add flavored powder to the recipe it can also give the bevrage added flavour"

Serves 75-100 tapioca pearls | Prep Time 20 mins | Cook Time 2 hours 20 mins

Why I Love This Recipe

Tapioca pearls are great, they're basically sticky, gooey, gummy bears you can put in any beverage without the added sweetness grossness, or without the worry of them melting.

Ingredients You'll Need

½ cup tapioca starch
¼ cup boiling water
¼ of packed brown sugar( for colour)
Food coloring( optional)


1. Place the tapioca flour in a heat-resistant bowl, add the boiling water and stir until a dough is formed. To keep dough from drying out, cover dough with a damp towel.

2.Using about 1/8 teaspoon of dough to form a little ball.

3. Place the pearls on a sheet pan that has been lined with parchment paper. Allow them to dry for at least 2 hours.

4.To cook the pearls, fill a medium saucepan with water and bring it to a boil. Add the pearls. When they are half way cooked through they will float to the top. Continue cooking for another 15 to 20 minutes, then drain.

Pairs Well With

works great with any sort of bevrage( tip: buy tapioca straws because regular straws aren't big enough to drink out of.)
