Trapped in a society that long ago stopped questioning, Cassia in Matched by Ally Condie is brave enough to break out of the bubble and use her ability to wonder, "Can something wrong be true?". Cassia's world is filled with colorful images: a bright green dress, and red, green and blue tablets that inspired the brightly colored bubbles in this colorful fruit drink. Like Cassia, this tapioca pearl drink is free from harmful additives, and will brighten any occasion.
1 cup guava nectar
1 cup peach mango juice drink (V-fusion)
6 oz frozen orange juice concentrate
10 ice cubes
2/3 cup tapioca pearls (I used rainbow colored pearls)
1/3 cup water
2 T white sugar
2 T brown sugar
Place the three juices and ice cubes in a blender and mix until combined. Pour into two tall glasses. Cook the pearls in a saucepan according to package directions. Strain the water from the pearls. Return the pearls to the saucepan and add the water, white and brown sugar. Heat the mixture on medium-high until the it is syrupy and sticky. Divide the sticky pearls into the two glasses of juice. Drink with an extra large straw or use a spoon. Experiment with other fruit juice combinations.
