  1. Hi Rachel — Love your site, which I discovered yesterday. My husband and I are making this but just realized that the tapioca isn’t included in the cooking directions (just the ingredients). We’re going to pour off the liquid (it’s been cooking for about two hours) and will add in the tap. and then pour it back in, but wanted to mention this for future reference. Thanks! P.S. Coconut and lime are two of my favorite things… Bath and Body Works’ Coconut and lime verbena body wash is awesome and I can’t wait to try your coconut lime macaroons!
