Microwave Coconut Tapioca Pudding


Last weekend it was cold and rainy and I needed comfort food. I wanted tapioca pudding. Coconut tapioca pudding. Was there such a thing? After a little searching I found some recipes but I didn't want to sit at the stove stirring for 20 minutes. Then I noticed a recipe on the box for microwave tapioca pudding on the tapioca box so I combined that recipe with several that I found online. It worked like a charm - in 10 minutes I had my pudding!

Microwave Coconut Tapioca Pudding

1 can coconut milk, 14 ounces (I used light coconut milk from Trader Joe's)
1 cup milk (I used skim milk, worked fine)
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons quick cooking tapioca
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup coconut, toasted

Combine all ingredients (except the toasted coconut) in a large microwave safe bowl and let set for 5 minutes. Microwave on high for 10 to 12 minutes until mixture comes to a full boil, stirring every 10 minutes. Eat warm, or cover the top of the pudding with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator. Top with the toasted coconut before eating.

To toast the coconut, spread in a tray and put in a 350 degree oven for a few minutes. Watch carefully! I toasted mine in my toaster oven.
