"No eggs or milk in this creamy dessert. Use your favorite fruit juice. I wrote it with pineapple juice, but orange, apple, cranberry or grape work. Haven't tried it with minute tapioca."

Made for the 1st Time Tag Game @ FF&F - This was so good, Mike, & an easy-fix too. I made it yesterday (using cranberry juice) for my weekly family brunch this morning. Tapioca puddings are a new treat for my Icelandic family. This was 1 of 3 desserts served today, it was well-rec'd & Siggi favored it more than the 1st we tried. The flavor possibilities are nearly endless, so this will definitely be repeated. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
