Tapioca Pudding Recipe


Tapioca Pudding is definitely considered a comfort food to most Americans.  My husband loves Tapioca Pudding and could eat it every day.  By using the quick-cooking tapioca, you save time as it only takes a few minutes to bring the tapioca mixture to a boil.  Just let cool and you have a delicious tapioca pudding dessert to serve your family.  A great option is to use coconut milk and egg substitute which changes the flavor and makes this a favorite vegan dessert as well.
