I had this red bean soy milk the first timeat a McDonalds in Hong Kong back in March. Recently I cant stop thinking about the warmth and coziness of this awesome drink. With the soy milk maker I stole/borrowed from my in-laws, I did some research and gave it a try. The result was great!! It was thicker than regular soy milk and it filled the house with delicious aroma of red bean!!! You can sweeten it with any liquid sugar you like. I chose organic agave this time and I like it a lot. Its not too overwhelming but enough to bring out the sweet aroma of red bean.
Even though it was good as is, I wanted more texture to it. Wouldnt it be fun to add some bubbles (a.k.a.tapioca pearls) to it?I thought about buying the pre-made ones from a grocery store, I wasnt sure which ones was the best. Then I decided to make my very own tapioca pearls so its fresh and chewy! Thanks to Bobs Red Mill, I found that tapioca flour can be found in almost all major grocery stores in the flour aisle. It was not expensive and 1 bag can make a TON of tapioca pearls. Not to mention it was super easy to make! Here is a video I made to share how I did it. It will bea fun project to do especially if you have kids. I hope you like it and enjoy!!!
Red Bean Soy Milk with Homemade Tapioca Pearls Save Print Prep time 30 mins Cook time 10 mins Total time 40 mins Author: estalystic Serves: 3-4 small cups Ingredients Red Bean Soy Milk cup soy bean cup red bean 5 cup water Organic agave to taste (I don't like it too sweet so I added cup in my soy milk) Tapioca Pearls 9 tablespoon tapioca flour 3-6 tablespoon BOILING water 2 drops chocolate brown food coloring 4-5 tablespoon brown sugar Instructions Rinse both soy bean and red beans. Put all beans and water in soy milk maker. (According to the manual of my soy milk maker, it's ok to both either dry beans or beans that have been soaked in water for hours) Let the machine do it's work. It took mine 30 mins to finish. Strain red bean soy milk with a cheese cloth or steel strainer. I did it twice to make sure it's smooth then I set it aside. Tapioca pearls (see video) Depending on how humid you are located, it could affect how much BOILING water to put in the tapioca flour. I always put 3 tablespoons in the flour, then I knead, and add 1 tablespoon of BOILING WATER at a time until it turns into playdoh-like texture. The tapioca dough dries out quickly and cracks a little as you roll them into little pearls. It's ok. It won't affect the final result. 3.5.3208 Resource List:(click on the images below to find the ingredients and equipment you need)
