Slow Cooker Tapioca Pudding – Slow Cooking Perfected
This slow cook tapioca pudding is incredibly tasty and one of the easiest desserts to prepare and cook.
By the time this pudding is ready, it will be thick, creamy, and vanilla flavored. The pudding goes very well with a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg on top.
You will find that this pudding is still delicious cold. It makes dessert ideal for leftovers, as it doesn’t need to be reheated. Leftovers are also perfect if you just want a cold breakfast that you can eat on the go.
A big reason why using a slow cooker is better than doing it over the stove is that you can let the pudding cook slowly while you perform other tasks. I still recommend stirring the pudding every thirty minutes, but it’s not completely necessary. However, not removing it can cause it to burn, and the texture may not be as good.
can speed up the cooking of this tapioca pudding by soaking the pearls in milk overnight. He soaked them in about a cup of milk. Otherwise, no pre-soaking is required to get a great-tasting pudding. If you decide to soak them, be sure to place them in the fridge.
The type of tapioca you use in this recipe will significantly alter the outcome of the final dish. If possible, try using small tapioca pearls. Alternatively, you can use other varieties, but you may find that the texture and taste may not be as pleasant.
The egg can be left out of this recipe, but you will notice a difference in the texture of the pudding. If you use an egg, beat it before adding it to the slow cooker.
You can swap milk for coconut milk for a completely different tasting pudding. This change is also perfect for anyone who is trying to avoid dairy in their diet.
Ideas for serving tapioca
The pudding is amazing on its own, but it also pairs perfectly with some extra ingredients. Below are a couple of ideas on what you can do.
Fresh fruit is the perfect accompaniment to this dessert. I love serving it with a variety of fruits, such as sliced banana, raspberries, and strawberries. Stewed fruit like poached pears will also work great with this pudding.
For a little variety in textures, you can serve the pudding with biscotti or granola. Both will add a lovely crunchy element that will match the creaminess of the pudding nicely.
