Top Review by Calee

This is very good tapioca pudding. I love the addition of the coconut milk followed the recipe except I didn`t have any pineapple so I topped it with sliced bananas. The toasted coconut is very nice topping as well. It wasn`t overly sweet which is a good thing. Thanks Charlotte J for a great recipe and one that we will make again!
