tapioca parfaits

At first sight, tapioca is surely not the most appealing dessert of all! However, presented with pieces of fruit such as slices of strawberries and mango, it can become a real treat. You can also layer pieces of fruit and tapioca in a transparent glass to give it a sophisticated look.

Tapioca parfaits
6 servings
1/4 cup quick-cooking tapioca
2 cups milk (1-2% m.f.)
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk the tapioca, milk, maple syrup, and egg.
  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture begins to boil. Remove from the heat, add vanilla and transfer to another bowl.
  3. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  4. Serve with pieces of fruit.
