Coconut Tapioca pudding (Serves 5)

Coconut tapioca pudding

For the pudding

1. Coconut milk 1 cup
2. Tapioca pearls/Sabudana ¼ cup, cooked to opaque
3. Sweetened condensed milk 1/3 cup
4. Sweetened coconut flakes 3 TBSP (optional)
5. Custard powder 2 TBSP (neutral flavor, I used birds eye brand)
6. Cardamom powder 2 pinches

For the banana sauce

1. Medium ripe banana 1 small, mashed using a fork
2. Brown sugar ¼ cup
3. Ghee/butter 1 tsp
4. Water 1 TBSP


  • In a saucepan, add the ghee/butter, brown sugar and water. Bring to a boil and add the mashed bananas. Stir continuously for 10-15 minutes until a saucy consistency is attained. Remove from flame and set aside to cool.
  • In another pan, add the tapioca pearls/sabudana and warm for 5 minutes. Add lots of water and cook till the pearls are opaque (it took me a good 30 minutes at medium high flame). Immediately drain and wash under cold water. This will prevent the pearls from sticking together.
  • Lastly in another saucepan, add the custard powder, coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk. Mix well to dissolve the custard powder and place on a medium flame for about 15 minutes stirring occasionally. Add in the sweetened coconut flakes and cardamom powder. Mix to combine and add the cooked tapioca pearls. Mix well and remove from flame. Allow to cool and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
  • Serving suggestion: You can either serve as parfaits with alternating pudding and banana sauce and garnish with banana slices and cherry OR simply serve pudding in a bowl topped with banana sauce.

  1. Your photography is excellent! I always love coming to your blog to not only check out your recipes but also your beautiful serve ware and drink ware! Care to share from where you bought the drink ware in the second photo and also the beautiful glass in the Salmon spread recipe? I also like the serve ware in the chilly chicken recipe :) Thanks! Anita

    1. Hi Anita, Thank you so much for the lovely comment and ohwww ya i would be more than happy to share from where i got all these, the drinkware in here and the one in salmon spread is bought from shop Ross, dress for less. Both of them are Libbey's drinkware set of 4. The serve ware in Chilly chicken is from TJ Max.

    2. Thank you for letting me know :). I go to Ross or TJ Maxx stores almost every weekend!!! :). There are 3 TJ Maxx stores within 15 mins drive for me!:).But I spend all my time and money on kids books, toys, clothes, men's and women's accessories and only check out the housewares section during Nov-Dec. I will be hitting that section on a regular basis hereafter :).
