5 from 1 reviews

Taho is a sweet comfort food made from soft Tofu, Brown Sugar syrup or Arnibal, and Tapioca pearls or Sago pearls. In most Filipino neighborhoods, it is common to hear a loud shouting in the morning saying “Tahooooo!”.


  • 11 ounce or 312 grams of all natural extra soft tofu – for each cup of Taho
  • 1 cup sago pearl – cooked and flavored with brown sugar

VARIATION: If you want to have another flavor or toppings instead of sago, you can also have nata de coco as shown in the picture above, or scraped coconut, depending on your own preference.

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar for the arnibal
  • 1/4 cup water – for the arnibal
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – for the arnibal mixture


  1. Caramelized the brown sugar by mixing the water, sugar and vanilla extract and stir continuously under low heat.
  2. Pour the extra soft tofu in a cup and heat it in micro wave oven for 5 minutes or by steaming it in 10 minutes.
  3. When extra soft tofu is ready, add 2-3 tablespoons of caramelized brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of sago or nata de coco and your Homemade Taho is ready!
  4. Serve hot and enjoy!

You can set aside in the fridge the extra cooked sago and caramelized sugar so you can make taho anytime you want if you have stocks of extra soft tofu.
