Coconut Cream Tapioca

Serves 4
Time 3 hr 10 min
Tapioca pearls along with sweet coconut and agave nectars combine to create this creamy Asian-style pudding. We use agar-agar as the thickening agent in the sauce. Agar-agar flakes, made from a combination of sea vegetables, provide a clear, tasteless alternative to animal or chemical-based gelatins.

  • 1 tablespoon light agave nectar or brown rice syrup

Method

To prepare the tapioca, combine the tapioca pearls, coconut nectar and agave nectar in a large saucepan.

Allow the mixture to soak for 5 to 30 minutes, according to the package directions.

Cook, over medium-high heat until the mixture comes to a boil.

Decrease the heat and simmer, stirring frequently, until the mixture thickens and tapioca pearls become translucent, 15 to 20 minutes.

Divide the mixture equally among four 3/4-cup ramekins or custard cups and let cool.

Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.

To prepare the coconut cream, combine the coconut milk, agave nectar, agar-agar and salt in a small saucepan, stir to blend.

Set aside for 30 minutes to soften the agar-agar flakes.

Cook, over medium heat, stirring constantly until the agar-agar flakes dissolve, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Spoon the mixture over the tapioca. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour. Serve chilled.
