Ohhhhhhh YUM :) This really hit the spot! Although unlike Elmotoo, it wasn't sweet enough for us, so next time I will increase the sugar. I also used half milk, half evaporated canned milk. It was delicious! Thanks!!!

Perfect! it was a smidge sweet for my tastes. I loved that it was so fast & easy. I think I prefer the long cooking tapioca better but if you're short on time, this is THE way to go! I doubled this & still didn't get any. Thanks UC!

This has been my favorite recipe for Tapioca pudding for years. On the back of the Minute Tapioca box, it is always convenient and makes the perfect pudding. Creamy, smooth, with just the right amount of sweetness, this tapioca pudding is sure to please all pudding lovers. I'm glad to see this recipe on Zaar. In case the recipe on the back of the box ever changes, I will always know where to find it! Thanks, UnknownChef86 : )

I love tapioca pudding! When I was a kid my mom used to make it the old fashioned way and let the tapioca pearls soak overnight. It was a time consuming process and I could never get mine to turn out like hers did so I thought I'd give this recipe a try. I couldn't wait for this to set up so I could enjoy some. I even tried it warm as you suggested (I had previously only had it cold) and I thought it was good that way too. This was such a treat. Thank's UC! :)

Yummmmm. I'm cleaning out my pantry for the move and have found a decent amount of minute tapioca to use up (along with cream of wheat, quick grits etc.) and this was a great way to use some up. I used thick skim milk and it took about 15 minutes to truly boil but it was definitely worth it. Super easy to make I suspect this will be made a lot this summer trying to use up the tapioca. I'll have to sacrifice! ;)

Thanks for the Memories... Mom made this for Saturday night's dessert. Haven't had it for awhile. This is so much better then the premade stuff these days, Made it with Splenda which was even better.

Delish! I lost the instructions when I removed the tapioca from it's ugly box and stored it in a cute little jar. So glad I dropped into Food.com. Quick, easy and yummmmm

Made this for my teenage son who gave it two thumbs up but requested more sugar next time. Nice creamy, rich consistency. Although it seemed a bit thin at first, it settled up nicely after cooling a bit. Thanks!
