Protein tapioca with honey & cardamom

As a dessert or snack, tapioca is a great option! If you've never tasted tapioca pearls, just one taste is enough to hook you for life. Tapioca pearls are small, translucent edible spheres produced from tapioca, a starch extracted from cassava root. When you combine milk and tapioca pearls, you'll end up with an ultra creamy drink that will make you want to savour them over and over again. And when you add Natrel Plus 3.25%, you'll get to enjoy creamy tapioca filled with 2X more protein than regular milk offers. Say good-bye to late-night snacks!
