3 Tbsp raw sugar

100 gm ice cubes

milk, to taste (optional)


Soak tapioca pearls for at least 3 hours.

In a sauce pan, pour water. The amount of water should cover all tapioca pearls. Bring it to a boil. Add tapioca pearls to the boiling water on medium heat. Stir them constantly and make sure that they don’t stick together. After cooking for 15 to 20 minutes, remove from heat. Cover and wait for another 30 minutes. The tapioca pearls should be translucent, without any white dots in the middle. They are done. If they are not ready, turn on the heat again and cook for a few minutes more. Drain tapioca pearls and rinse under cold water. All tapioca pearls should be cool to the touch.

Cut mango into cubes, about 1 1/2cm in size.


Blend the rest of mango cubes, ice cubes and sugar in a food processor into thick juice, about 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer into a large bowl. Mix in tapioca pearls.  Serve in a unique style cup.
