You're going to love our recipe for Ambrosia Tapioca Pudding so much, you're going to have a hard time deciding whether to serve this easy pudding recipe as a salad or dessert. Creamy, fruity, and filled with mini marshmallows...how can you go wrong?

What You'll Need:

  • 3 tablespoons tapioca (see Note)

  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
What To Do:
  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine sugar, tapioca, milk, and egg; let stand 5 minutes. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 8 to 10 minutes, or until mixture comes to a rolling boil. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla, and let cool 20 minutes. Gently stir in oranges, pineapple, and marshmallows.
     
  2. Pour into a serving bowl or individual dessert bowls and chill at least 2 hours, or until thoroughly chilled. Serve or cover and keep chilled until ready to serve.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I never have any luck making good tapioca pudding. My husband loves it with pineapple as that is how his mother made it and it always is soupy for me. I do not know what I do incorrectly.

Try it with Jello Cook and Serve Tapioca,,,, works well.

Did anyone tryed to enter 4 tablespoons of tapioca,insted of 3 ???

Too soupy

Wow. For some reason it came out soupy. Like there is too much liquid. Are the portions correct?
