EGG FREE! Dairy-FREE! SOY- FREE! tapioca pudding! And it tastes exactly the same as the long standing “perfect” recipe off the box of Instant Tapioca Pearls, the food of my childhood.
Well.. I can’t have that anymore, I had to find the “real” tapioca pearls at the International Market down the road. Surprizingly, they come in many sizes, and some shocking colors. I can’t quite bring myself to buy the food color additives, but it’s interesting that the crazy version isn’t available in American grocery stores.
Back to pudding. Make this soothing pudding. It’s amazingly comforting.
Ahhhh.. comfort food.
- 2 C water
- 3 T tapioca pearls
Boil the water in a saucepan. Turn the heat down to a simmer, and add the pearls, whisking them constantly to keep them from clumping. Simmer for 15 minutes.
- 3 T sugar
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 3/4 C coconut milk
- 1/3 C unsweetened coconut flakes (Bob’s Red Mill)
Simmer another 15 minutes or until it’s the consistancy that you like. I like it thick.
Enjoy!! : )
