Directions

Rinse tapioca pearls well, add to milk and heat on medium fire. Scrape one vanilla bean and add to milk while stirring. Add coconut sugar, and cook until tapioca pearls become transparent (20-30 min). May add crunchy hazelnuts into pudding for more nutty flavor or stir in 1 tsp of nutella.

Pour tapioca pudding in the transparent glass previously rinsed with cold water. Do it as soon as you are done cooking since it firms up fast.

Puree berries and place on the top of the pudding.

Toast hazelnuts in a pan (whole or halves) with a bit of sugar and when sugar starts sticking to the hazelnuts, stop toasting, put it in a food processor and chop so it is crunchy. Pour over berries.
