Apricot Tapioca Pudding
- Total Time
This is a refreshing nondairy dessert, but you can substitute 1 cup of low-fat milk for 1 cup of the apricot nectar for a creamy version.
apricot nectar2 cup(s)
dried apricot halves⅓ cup(s), chopped
uncooked tapioca3 Tbsp, quick-cooking variety
vanilla extract½ tsp
- Bring the apricot nectar and apricots to a boil in a medium saucepan. Remove from the heat and let stand 20 minutes.
- Strain the liquid from the apricots and add enough water to equal 2 cups. Return liquid to the saucepan with the apricots, sugar, and tapioca. Let stand 5 minutes.
- Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to a boil. Remove from the heat and let cool about 20 minutes. Stir the vanilla into the pudding. Serve warm or cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 3 hours or up to 3 days. Yields 1/2 cup per serving.
