There’s this drink in the Philippines known as Taho. I loved drinking it when I was little and when I visited a few years ago, my family bought some everyday from our neighborhood vendor. It’s a very simple drink and lately I’ve found myself making it a lot to stay warm.
I’ve noticed a lot of people get to this site by searching for Philippine related things and I figured I’d post a little tutorial on how to make one of my favorite drinks from my native country. It’s basically just sugar water with tofu mixed in so don’t worry, this will be brief.
That’s it! I like it when it’s really hot so I sometimes stick it in the microwave for about a minute. You can play around with the sweetness by moderating the amount of sugar you use. Also, there’s this stuff called pearl sago that you can add to make it really legit. I’m not a fan so I’m skipping that step. As far as the type of tofu goes, make sure to get the ones that says, “Best for soups, sauces and smoothies.” The “Firm” or “Medium” ones just don’t cut it.
