Coconut Dessert Soup with Sweet Potatoes (Bo Bo Cha Cha)

Sweets | June 27, 2016 | By

This traditional, often colorful Asian dessert soup, called “Bo Bo Cha Cha,” is a popular street food in Singapore and Malaysia. The base is coconut milk and features a variety of colorful sweet potatoes and yams. Purple sweet potatoes would be a great addition to this soup. It’s super easy to prepare, and can be served as a chilled soup starter or as a dessert. You may even get up and dance the Cha Cha after eating this soup!
