This was a good tapioca pudding - but you have to be sure to put plenty of pineapple and lychee on it, because the pudding alone is quite bland. I really liked the combo of flavors, and think it would be great to add different tropical fruits to the mix, like kiwi's and mango. Thanks for posting! Made for First Time Tag on FF&F.
