Po'e is a popular dish in Tahiti, where it is frequently eaten as a dessert, although it can also be served alongside other dishes at a traditional tamara'a or feast. It is a sweet, pudding-like confection made from bananas, papaya, or mangoes cooked with manioc and coconut cream. Po‘e should not be confused with the better-known Hawaiian poi made from taro and water.
