Ingredients (2 servings)

MetricImperial
Taro Balls
75g taro
30g tapioca flour
2 tsp monk fruit erythritol sweetener
1 tbsp hot water
Matcha Latte
1.5 tsp matcha powder
1 tbsp hot water
1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
240ml oat milk
4-5 ice cubes
  1. Peel and cut taro into 1 inch pieces.
  2. Steam taro for 15 minute or until tender (when you can easily poke through it with a fork).
  3. Transfer taro to a bowl and mash with a fork while it’s still warm.
  4. Stir in tapioca flour and stevia.
  5. Stir in hot water. Using your hands, knead mixture into a dough. Then, shape the dough into little round balls. After all the dough is used up, lightly dust the taro balls with some tapioca flour. Get rid of excess tapioca flour using a sieve.
  6. Prepare an ice bath.
  7. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add taro balls and cook for 1 minute or until they float. Drain and transfer to ice bath immediately. Drain again and the taro balls are ready for use.
  8. Prepare matcha latte and stir in taro balls. Enjoy!
