very easy
4 personnes


750 ml
(3 t) of water
85 ml
(1/3 t) of tapioca pearls
250 ml
(1 t) unsweetened coconut milk
85 ml
(1/3 t) of sugar
pinch of salt
ripe bananas, peeled
sesame seeds


Step 1
In a medium saucepan over high heat, boil the water. Add the tapioca pearls and mix well to separate each pearl.
Step 2
Turn the heat to low and let cook gently for at least 20 minutes, stirring constantly. The pearls should become transparent and the overall texture should be a bit sticky. If this is not the case, pour in a few spoonfuls of water.
Step 3
Add the coconut milk, sugar and salt, then mix well. Cook for 2 minutes.
Step 4
Cut each banana in half lengthwise, then half in half. Add the bananas to the pan. Cook another 5 minutes.
Step 5
Pour in small bowls and garnish with sesame seeds.
