For a light and lovely “something sweet” to cap off your meal, try this creamy dessert from Katie Anderson in Spokane, Washington. “To make it look extra-special, I sometimes sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg or a few sliced berries,” Katie says. TIP: Tapioca will keep indefinitely if it’s stored airtight in a cool dry place.

"This is a quick and easy recipe and the flavors are quite good. I was a little disappointed in the texture, however, it wasn't as good as my mother used to make. Unfortunately, I never got her recipe. I may make this again, but will continue looking for a 5-star recipe."
