With all the moving madness – which so far is more like me hopelessly looking at all the empty boxes and not knowing where to start -, I have NO TIME (or energy) to spend in the kitchen. So this pudding is pretty much what I’ve been eating for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
I am, of course, exaggerating. But almost every meal followed a tablespoon or two of this creamy heaven for dessert.
The star of this show? Kozy Shack‘s Tapioca Pudding, of course! That stuff is so good it doesn’t last 2 days in my fridge! I could blame my husband right now, but I’m the one at fault here… Oops! *wipes pudding off chin*
I mean… Can you blame me? Kozy Shack’s pudding is so yummy and it is made with simple, wholesome ingredients. Real milk, no artificial preservatives or hydrogenated oils. Not to mention it is a great source of calcium! So I feel ZERO bad about my tapioca pudding addiction.

While I grew up eating many tapioca dishes in my home country (Brazil), I only recently tried tapioca pudding as it is consumed here in the United States. 
Our version of a tapioca pudding is similar to a flan, way firmer in texture, and you most definitely won’t find it ready to eat in the supermarket.
Thank you, friends at Kozy Shack for creating this wonder of wonders! Life is so much easier when dessert comes in a container, ready to eat!

To make this dessert even easier, one could go without the guava sauce and just sprinkle coconut or fresh fruit on top of the pudding and it would still be delicious. 
But who would skip on the most perfect topping ever?? 
Not me! This guava sauce is PHENOMENAL and I need every little bit I can get of it! (I may or may not have eaten a few tablespoons of it by itself…) 
Oh, and it requires only two ingredients: Goiabada (Guava Paste) and Water. WIN!
You can find guava paste at your local latino grocery store or at Amazon. This stuff is not only amazing in this recipe but great by itself or with cheese! :)
