Slow Cooker Tapioca Pudding Recipe

Slow Cooker Tapioca Pudding Recipe
Tapioca pudding is a comfort food for many of us, and there are dozens of recipes out there; many families have their own “best” tapioca pudding recipe. Nowadays, most cooks are in a hurry, and don’t have time to make it from scratch. However, those who have a slow cooker available can make an excellent version with very little hands-on time and no stirring at the stove.
Minute Tapioca is available at most grocery stores; small tapioca pearls are available at Asian grocery stores; they come in both white and colored. If using the small pearls, it will take a bit longer to cook and the tapioca balls will be a bit bigger than when using Minute Tapioca. Either one works well in this recipe.
