Tropical Tea Tapioca
- 1/2 cup large pearl tapioca
- 2 cups brewed black tea
- pinch salt
- 1 (13.5-ounce) can coconut milk
- maple syrup, to taste
- fresh fruit slices
Soak tapioca in water for 20 minutes, or according to package directions. Drain.
In a saucepan, combine tapioca, tea and salt. Simmer over medium heat, adding a bit of water if necessary. After tapioca has simmered for 10 minutes, test for doneness: pearls should be a little gooey on the outside but still chewy on the inside.
Spoon tapioca into small dessert dishes, pour a little coconut milk on top and drizzle with maple syrup. Serve garnished with sliced fresh fruit, such as peaches.
