Not everybody likes tapioca, which is very unfortunate. Tapioca is a wonderful ingredient that can be used in hundreds of different recipes, and in desserts is particularly delicious.
I learned this recipe some time ago and I must confess, it was love at first sight (well, more like first taste)! This dessert is super easy to make, doesn’t require specific technique and allows for many different variations. No wonder it’s one of my favorites.
Tapioca also has a fascinating texture. Sometimes I add it to iced tea, other times I combine it with my fresh fruits or I serve it with a little bit of condensed milk. It’s delicious! However, be aware of the fact that I’m not talking about instant tapioca, I’m talking about the tapioca that comes in little quinoa-sized balls. When they’re cooked they absorb a lot of water, they swell and become almost transparent. It’s amazing!
This is an excellent introduction to start with in your repertoire of original and delicious recipes! After a heavy fest, this light and refreshing dessert it’s just what you need to close out a fantastic meal.
