Coconut Tapioca Pudding
Ingredients:
1/2 cup large pearl tapioca
1 can coconut cream (this is sweetened coconut milk)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
2 large egg yolks
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions:
Soak the tapioca overnight in a large bowl with 2 cups water.

Drain and rinse tapioca.  Place in a medium saucepan with coconut cream and water; bring to a boil over medium heat.  Cover and reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 1 hour.  Whisk in milk and cook an additional 15 minutes, or until tapioca pearls are tender.

Take saucepan off of the heat and quickly whisk in egg yolks until combined.  Place pan back on heat and cook 2 minutes, whisking constantly.

Remove pan from heat and whisk in salt and vanilla until combined.  For a creamier texture, try blending the pudding with an immersion blender.  Serve warm or chilled.

Makes 6 servings

  1. Cute photo! I love chalkboards. I had to talk myself out of buying chalkboard labels that I have no use for yesterday at Target.

    I've never had tapioca pudding, but I love anything vanilla-y and custardy too, so I have a feeling I'd enjoy this!

  3. I have a 2007 Nissan Versa. I love it. It's cute and fuel efficient and has given me no problems. It drives really smoothly. Back when I had a car with a manual transmission I hated it when I was driving an automatic and it would take forever for the next gear to kick in when I accelerated and how cars would jump a little when they did shift. My Nissan is automatic and it shifts quickly and smoothly.

    Congrats on finding new digs. Too bad we never did meet up in Chicago.

  4. Happy to hear you & Eric have secured a place to live and are soon to head on to your new phase. I have had a MINI Cooper since 2003. They are great little cars...very safe and super fun to drive. I am sure you can get a used one for reasonable money. Good luck with you search!

  8. I've not had tapioca pudding for years, its got a bad reputation, but it can be delicious. This coconut one sounds divine. I'm really into ground rice at the moment, memories of childhood :)
    I have a Honda Jazz which I think are great cars, although you can get smaller ones.
    Best of luck with everything

  11. As a retired environmental advocate and hybrid car owner, I'm going to make a pitch for hybrid cars. Used Toyota Priuses aren't the cheapest cars around, but they're extremely reliable. And depending on how much you drive, you'll save $300-$1100 per year on gasoline. Having one has been a big selling point for my business, customers love the idea that I'm delivering their wine in a Prius.
