Directions

  1. Cover the tapioca pearls in warm water in a bowl and let sit on the counter for 20 minutes. Drain the pearls.
  2. Heat milk, coconut milk, salt, and pearls over medium-high heat until boiling.
  3. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking, stirring regularly, until tapioca are translucent and chewy, approximately 3-5 minutes.
  4. While milk and tapioca are coming to a boil, whisk egg yolks in a small bowl and gradually add sugar. Add matcha and whisk together.
  5. Add a small amount of the heated milk mixture to the egg mixture, whisking continuously. (An extra set of hands can be helpful.).
  6. Pour the egg mixture back into the milk mixture and continue to heat over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
  7. Transfer to a heat proof bowl. Let sit at room temperature until cool. Cover with plastic wrap and transfer to the refrigerator until cold, about 1-2 hours or overnight.
