Tapioca Melon Dessert Soup สาคูแคนตาลูป – Hot Thai Kitchen!
We do a lot of dessert soups in Thailand (and there is more on this in my cookbook). There are both hot and cold soups, and this is one of my favourite cold ones! Tapioca pearls, melon, coconut…may not be a combination you’ve seen before, but trust me, it is a must try! If you don’t like cantaloupe or honeydew melon, mango is also delish!
It’s a magical combination of aromas: the sweet ripe melons, coconut water, coconut milk and pandan leaves. I especially love the way the tapioca pearls slip and slide in your mouth, which makes it so fun to eat! Cold, refreshing, light, and just mildly sweet, this is the perfect summer dessert, or a light and sweet ending after a big meal!
