This recipe is a family favorite! It is an orange juice-based soup thickened with tapioca, served cold and flavored with fruit. So light and refreshing.
1/2 c sugar
6 T minute tapioca
1 12-oz. can frozen orange juice
1 16-oz. container frozen strawberries in syrup, thawed
5 peaches (fresh or canned), cut in chunks and chilled
6 bananas, sliced
Cook 2 cups water, sugar and tapioca in saucepan over medium heat until tapioca turns clear, stirring constantly (20 minutes or so). Mixture will thicken significantly as tapioca becomes more transparent. Stir in frozen orange juice. Slowly add 5 cups water, whisking continuously. Chill for 3 hours, whisking every 30 minutes (to break up tapioca that settles to the bottom). Add strawberries and peaches. Right before serving, add bananas. Serve cold.
