Additional Comments

You can also use Okinawan Sweet Potato (Purple). You can also mash a couple of the cubed potatoes and add to Tapioca mixture.

On my recent trip to Hawaii one dessert that I truly enjoyed eating was Coconut Sweet Potato Tapioca. I first tasted this sweet pudding at Zippy's! It's purple and made with Okinawan Sweet Potato, Coconut Milk and Tapioca. Since I couldn't find any Okinawan Sweet Potato here on the east coast, I used Satsumaimo, Japanese Sweet Potato instead.
