Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup strawberries chopped, plus extra whole strawberries to garnish (optional)
  • 1 cup arnibal caramelized brown sugar syrup
  • 2 packs silken tofu
  • mini tapioca sago, cooked, to top

Instructions
 

  • First, let’s start by making the arnibal. Grab a saucepan and combine sugar, 1 cup of water, and vanilla extract. Bring it to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer until the sugar is completely dissolved – this should take about 8 to 10 minutes. Once it’s done, set it aside.
  • Next, let’s move on to the strawberry syrup. In another saucepan, combine some chopped strawberries and the arnibal we just made. Simmer the mixture until the strawberries become slightly translucent, which usually takes about 5 minutes. Then, let it cool for about 20 minutes to thicken.
  • Now, it’s time to prepare the tofu. Place it in a heatproof dish, and boil some water in a steamer. Once the water is boiling, steam the tofu for 8 to 10 minutes until it’s nice and soft.
  • Finally, let’s assemble our Strawberry Taho! Scoop the steamed tofu into some glasses and layer it with some yummy sago and the strawberry syrup we made earlier. To top it all off, garnish with some whole strawberries for an extra pop of color and flavor.

Additional Notes for a Strawberry Taho Recipe

Aside from this recipe, another way of making the white (tofu) portion of the recipe is by boiling soy milk with gelatin. This process may take a bit longer than the above recipe but it can help determine what kind of taho you prefer. On that note, taho is something that can be enjoyed hot or cold.

It should also be noted that this Strawberry Taho recipe is just one of the easier versions to make the treat. You also have the option to get the base from a regular taho recipe and switch the sauce if it allows it.

If you want to go for an even easier Filipino snack, you should try out “Iskrambol.” But if you want a go at another making a dish that can be enjoyed hot or cold and makes for a great comfort dish, you should try “Champorado.”

You can also go for a similar dessert like “Buko Pandan” or try another creamy dessert like “Crema de Fruta.” There is also “Ube Leche Flan” for a similar consistency but ideal for someone who wants things on a lesser sweet side. Another refreshing option you can try is “Sago at Gulaman” or “Cheese Ice Cream.

These are just a few among the long list of snacks and desserts to fill your sweet tooth.
