  • 8 cups water
  • 1 cup tapioca pearls
  • 3 cups coconut milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 calabasa peeled, seeded and cut into 1/2 inch cubes


  • In a pot over medium heat, bring 6 cups of the water to a boil. Add tapioca pearls and cook, stirring regularly, for about 10 to 15 minutes or until translucent. Remove from pot and using a fine mesh sieve, rinse under cold, running water. Drain well. Until ready to use, keep tapioca in a bowl of cold water to keep from sticking together.
  • In a pot over medium heat, combine coconut milk, sugar and the remaining 2 cups water. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved.
  • Add calabasa. Lower heat and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 15 to 20 minutes or until calabasa is fork-tender. Add tapioca and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3 to 5 minutes or until dessert is slightly thickened. Serve hot.
