Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup (180 mL) tapioca pearls warm water for soaking
  • 2 cups (500 mL) unsweetened apple juice

  • 1 cup (250 mL) light coconut milk
  • 2 apples, unpeeled and finely diced
  • 1 lime, optional

  2. In a large saucepan heat apple juice over medium heat. Add sugar and salt and stir to dissolve.
