地瓜圆紅豆泥珍珠粉圓绿茶豆花Sweet Potato & Pearl Q Balls with Red Bean Paste and Green Tea Tau Fu Fa



Remember that when I posted the Green Tea Tau Fu Fa, I mentioned that besides eating this dessert with some red bean paste, I also converted it into a Taiwanese dessert? Here it’s my version of the Taiwanese dessert which makes up by sweet potato Q balls, black pearls, red bean paste & of course the green tea tau fu fa! 


This dessert was inspired by the 2 Taiwanese dessert shops which I have visited before & I can tell you that they are both looking & tasting good, hahaha!  In the past 2 years, there are more & more Taiwanese dessert shops being opened in Sydney & just in where my parents-in-law are living, there are 2 shops there, one is called Zen Q & another one is called Meet Fresh! You can view their full menu here & here!
