I had this as a dessert on a hot summer's night, and it was both refreshing, and delicious.

The only difficult part was making the tapioca pearls which I had 3 attempts at, and I will explain how to cook these delicacies, so that they do not turn into a "mush"!

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour plus standing time and freezing time
Serves: 2

150 g watermelon
1 kiwi fruit
½ tbsp lemon juice
½ tbsp liqueur
1 tsp honey

For the slushi
Cut the watermelon into small pieces and freeze.

Cut the kiwi fruit into small pieces and freeze separately.

For the Tapioca
Do NOT, as my packet says, soak these pearls first or you will find that they virtually disintegrate and my first attempt turned into a starchy mush with no little "balls" in it!

Boil a lot of water (my kettle is faster), and put it in a saucepan and bring to the boil again.

When it is boiling (and not before), carefully add the tapioca.

Turn the heat down a bit, and continue boiling, stirring often - mine took almost an hour - till they become opaque on the outside.

You may need to add more boiling water as these cook

Leave them white on the inside, turn off the heat and let them stand for a further 30 minutes or so and they will turn totally opaque.

Rinse them thoroughly, and allow to dry.

To assemble
When fruits are frozen, add the other ingredients to the watermelon only.

Blend for a few seconds till smooth.


Put the tapioca pearls in individual dessert, tall glasses or bowls.

Top each with the watermelon mixture.

Wash the blender, and blend the kiwi fruit.


I then added some more pearls, and the kiwi fruit mix.

Drink with a straw if you can find the big straws which are now made for bubble tea.

Otherwise eat with a spoon, as I did.
