So first I was too busy to post and now I am just enjoying my temporary freedom from having a schedule too much to remember to post. Its not that I havent taken pictures, but I just dont quite make that next step of letting you all know about it. Well, I am making the effort now, and thats what you should care about.
I was in the mood for tapioca. Yes, this particular mood strikes every now and again, but seeing as I hadnt worked out in about two weeks I wasnt about to make the completely fattening (but oh-so-tasty) egg custard tapioca. I instead opted for large bead tapioca with coconut milk. I had it over some surprisingly wonderful tasting papaya which made for a healthy dessert.
I would not recommend serving this cold because the coconut milk tends to harden back up and feels pretty granular on the tongue. That being said, the papaya should also be at room temp (yeah I learned that one the hard way ::shudder::).
1/2 cup large bead tapioca
1 can full coconut milk
zest and juice of one key lime
salt to taste
Soak the tapioca in water over night.
Simmer the tapioca in the coconut milk until the pearls are clear.
Add the lime juice, zest, and salt.
Serve over fresh cut chunks of papaya, or other tropical fruits.
