Homemade Tapioca Pudding
My husband and I love tapioca pudding ! So today at the market we picked up some tapioca pearls to make homemade pudding. I tried to skim off some calories on this traditional high calorie dessert.
1 Cup of Fat Free Half and Half
3 cups of Skim Milk
1/4 cup of Splenda
1/4 cup of granulated sugar
1/4 Tsp of Sea Salt or Kosher Salt
2 Whole Eggs or 1/2 cup egg substitute
1 Teaspoon of Pure Vanilla (Mexican is my favorite)
1/4 cup of tapioca granules
2 cinnamon sticks
1. In a heavy 2 quart sauce pan ( I prefer my all clad) beat the sugar, Splenda, salt and eggs.
2. Add Milk and half and half
And add the tapioca
Mix well. Add two cinnamon sticks
3. Over medium to medium high heat bring to almost a boil.
Make sure to whisk constantly to prevent scorching.
4. When pudding starts to thicken remove from heat and add vanilla.
Pour into individual ramekins.
I am a cinnamon fanatic so I dusted my off with some additional vietnamese cinnamon
