  • Author: She's Almost Always Hungry
  • Total Time: 1 hour, 7 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


This dessert is not the most photogenic but is so tasty with lots of tropical flavors from the coconut and bananas! It can be served warm or cold.



1/2 cup small pearl tapioca

1 1/2 cups water

1 can coconut milk

1/2 cup sugar

1/8 cup salt

3 apple bananas


Rinse and drain the tapioca.

Bring water to a boil and add tapioca. Reduce heat to medium. Cook until tapioca is translucent, about 10-12 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking.

Add coconut milk, sugar, and salt and cook for another 5 minutes over low heat. Slice apple bananas into the tapioca and cook for another 5-10 minutes until bananas are soft and cooked through.

Let pudding sit for 20 minutes before serving. Pudding may be served warm or can be refrigerated and served cold.
