I like tapioca pudding, no questions asked, so this was a given ~ OUTSTANDING! Did use chunky applesauce, as that's normally the only kind I buy or make, & this all came together so quickly! Great tasting whether warm or cold! Thanks for a keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Stars Recipe Tag]
An absolute 5 star dessert! I love tapioca and this is a great way to make it healthier! I haven't been having many desserts since starting weight watchers but this is going to become a regular! I used Splenda brown sugar blend and loved the cinnamon and nutmeg so added more than a pinch. I also served it warm and loved it that way. Thanks Boomie!
I made my own applesauce for this recipe as I like mine chunky and sweet. I used 1 lg. apple peeled and cut into small chunks. When I cooked the apples I added 1/2 c. brown sugar and about 1/2 c. of water along with a dash of nutmeg and about 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. I let it cook on med-high until apples were soft and tender, about 20 mins., then added 1 c. sugar free applesauce and mixed well. I doubled the tapioca and other ingredients. For the 2 c. milk, I used 1 c. half and half and 1 c. water mixed. It took about 25 mins. to thicken enough, not as the recipe states. After it cooled in the fridge for a couple of hrs., I added a dollop of whipped cream and was in heaven! Excellent recipe Boomette, and it will be made often in my house. One of the best recipes I have made on Zaar as a matter of fact! Made for Zaar Stars Tag Game.
