Tuesdays with Dorie with K: Coconut Tapioca

So we skipped the last project, because although Limoncello cupcakes sounded good to me, there was a little too much alcohol involved for K. Plus, I am in the middle of Giro wine prep. 
K was not very enthusiastic about this one either. "Coconut? I hate coconut."  "I know K. But try it." As luck would have it, we made this on a night when she had a friend over. The friend had a lot more enthusiastic for coconut than K did. Plus the presence of an extra child meant that they could handle almost all of the steps on their own.

The verdict: Instructions: clear. Taste: nice alone, but it really came alive the next day when I paired it with strawberries and the first blueberries of the season.


  1. Yum! I thought this was great with some fruit too. I hated coconut as a kid but I bet I would have loved this dessert.

  2. Looks great with the fresh fruit. This was an easy recipe good idea to let the kids help.

  3. It looks perfect with all of that beautiful fresh fruit.

  4. Definitely better with fruit. With the lemon cupcakes, I used all lemon juice, no alcohol. Everyone said they were great and perfectly lemony. (just FYI for future)

  5. The fruit makes it healthier and I think is a really good flavour combo with the coconut -- I'll have to try that!
