Tapioca with fresh whipped cream

From Natalie:

This is a nice dessert for the family or for a dinner party.  Light and fresh!


  • 3 tbsp. tapioca*
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 3/4 cups of milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp. confectioners sugar
  • 4 strawberries

Combine the sugar, tapioca,milk and egg in a saucepan and let sit for 5 minutes.

Stir  while cooking on medium heat until the mixture boils.  Take off the heat and stir in 2 tsp. of vanilla.  I thought it would be fun to put the pudding into margarita glasses for a great presentation.  Pour into 4 glasses or small bowls.

For the whipped cream, put one cup of heavy cream into a bowl.  Add 1 tbsp. of confectioners sugar  (more if you like it sweeter) and 1 tsp of vanilla.  Beat with a hand mixer until it forms soft peaks.

Put a dollop of cream onto the pudding and garnish glass or bowl with a strawberry.  Serves 4.
