Sweet Banana Soup, With Tapioca and Coconut

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Nolita_Food

A very common dessert in Hanoi. You can serve it hot, cold, or room temp. I personally prefer it hot in winter (yes it does get cold in Hanoi in winter, very actually!)

I love this recipe for Che Chuoi. The recipe I got from my sis-in-law is almost exactly same, so I wanted to rate yours. I was going to post it for safe keeping, and I'm glad to see you already have it on here. Yummy. Definately one of my fave desserts. =)
