This week's selection of Coconut Tapioca pudding was
so simple to make and the results were delicious. My taste
tester declared it a winner and I have to agree. Perfect.
This was my first time using coconut milk and when I first opened the
can I thought there was something wrong. I did not expect it to be solid inside,
but it melted nicely when mixed with the other ingredients.
A quick and easy dessert that will be a repeat.Per Tricia~
Dorie shares in this recipe that she didn't have an affinity for
tapioca pudding when young, and only changed her opinion after
tasting Pierre Hermé's wonderful rendition in Paris. No surprise.
For me, tapioca has been a favorite for years - it is the
coconut that I have come around to enjoying as an adult.
I can say with certainty that I would not have made tapioca with coconut
milk if not for this recipe. Simply would not have put two and two together.
Boy am I glad Dorie did.
It was a lovely contrast and along with the vanilla extract, really gave
my usual tapioca a run for its money. And in my opinion, the large pearl
is the only way to go. We loved this recipe and can't wait till the kids are
home from college so I can make it for them. A double recipe at least :)
