I found this kiwi mango tapioca pudding recipe after I was diagnosed with a slew of medical conditions. On October 31st was a changing point in my life. I had to make some major, major changes in my eating. After having ALCAT testing done to determine what food intolerance I had, I was shocked by all the things I had to now remove from my diet. Finding something I could even sort of consider being a treat was near impossible. Then I made this tapioca pudding. It. Was. Amazing.
So here is the kiwi mango tapioca pudding recipe. It is gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free. It is NOT sugar free. I use organic cane sugar. It is also NOT nut free. These are the choices that work for the eating style I follow. Feel free to test changes that work for your lifestyle and share your versions in the comments for others to see, too.
Kiwi Mango Tapioca Pudding Recipe Ingredients:
1/3 cup small pearl tapioca
¾ cup water
2 cups milk*
¼ tsp salt
½ cup sugar
1 kiwi, peeled and chopped
½ mango, peeled and chopped
Optional: ½ tsp vanilla extract
- Soak tapioca in the water for at least 30 minutes in a 1-2 quart sauce pan. Do not drain.
- Add milk*, salt, sugar (And optional vanilla. I omitted it as I am intolerant to vanilla and cannot have it, and mine still tasted phenomenal.)
- Simmer uncovered over very low heat for 10-15 minutes, stirring often.
- As the tapioca thickens, add in the kiwi and mango (or any fruit choices of your choice.)
- Serve warm or chilled. (Cold is much better in my opinion, if you can wait long enough for this to cool before devouring it!)
Makes about 6 servings. Stores well cold for 3-5 days in refrigerator.
*The original recipe I loosely based mine off of used coconut milk. I am severely intolerant to coconut (HUGE surprise to me!) so I opted to use homemade cashew milk. I have not tested any other options but I don’t see why you couldn’t use whatever milk best suites your family.
Being both gluten-free and dairy-free has been a crazy difficult challenge thus far. Each day I learn about new options. If you are on a similar journey, try out this fun recipe and check back often. I’ll be sharing anything I try that turns out a success (because trust me, there are a lot of failures, too).
