RECIPE: A 7-Step Star Wars Yoda Punch!

Happy Thanksgiving!

It may feel like winter some places, but it’s still fall!

We hope you’ve safely traveled to where you need to be for the holidays and are happily eating a delicious meal with your family and/or friends. If you’ve got some extra time to spare and are looking to make a delicious drink for your loved ones, check out how to make a Star Wars Yoda Punch below!

This recipe for Yoda Punch comes from Ashley Eckstein’s (a Star Wars legend) book “Star Wars Everyday,” which she went on tour with a few months back. It can make 2 drinks, so double, triple, or increase its size depending on how many you’re serving.


  • 4 tablespoons instant tapioca pearl (black sugar flavor)
  • 2 kiwis, plus 1 more for garnish (optional)
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 teaspoon sweetened matcha powder
  • 8 ounces of fizzy water or ginger ale, depending on desired sweetness


1. Prepare the tapioca pearls according to the package directions and then set them aside.

2. Peel, core, and roughly chop the kiwis.

3. Combine the pineapple juice, kiwi, and matcha powder in a blender, and blend until smooth.

4. To serve: Fill two large glass tumblers with crushed ice.

5. Split the fruit mixture between the glasses, and ladle half the tapioca pearls into each glass.

6. Top with fizzy water or ginger ale.

7. To garnish (optional), quarter the additional kiwi, cutting a small slit in the center or each quarter. Place two quarters on the rim of each glass for ears, and, using a short skewer, secure two pearls for eyes.
