  1. In a small pot, combine the tapioca pearls, coconut milk, sugar and salt. Let rest for 30 minutes.
  2. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until the tapioca thickens and is transparent, about 20 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the tapioca. Let cool, then refrigerate for 1 hour or until completely chilled.
  4. When ready to serve, stir the tapioca with a rubber spatula until smooth. If needed, add 1 tbsp (15 ml) of water at a time to reach a thinner consistency.
  5. Fill shallow dishes with the shaved ice and top with the coconut tapioca and diced mango. Drizzle with the condensed milk.


For finely crushed ice, place ice cubes in a sealable plastic bag or pillowcase, then pound with a meat mallet or rolling pin before finely crushing in a food processor.
