This creamy paleo tapioca pudding is the perfect dessert for when you feel like a bit of a treat. There is a ton of extras you can add to the pudding such as sliced mango or banana.
It is quite a simple dessert that doesn’t require much effort to get right. The hardest part of this recipe is mixing in the eggs without scrambling them. Just follow the recipe and take your time when completing this part.
You can simply cook this up and allow it to cool completely before serving. It is perfect if you want to make the pudding ahead of time and have it for breakfast or as a cold dessert. Tapioca pudding is great both warm and cold so do whatever you like best.
As I mentioned above, you can add a ton of different extras to this dish for more flavor and nutrition. Personally, I love to have this with some summer berries such as raspberries and strawberries. It just comes down to what you want to eat.

Paleo Tapioca Pudding Recipe
- ½ cup tapioca pearls
- 3 cups coconut milk
- 2 Tbsp. honey
- 1 tsp. vanilla bean paste
- 2 egg yolks, beaten
- ¼ tsp. sea salt
- In a pot, combine the tapioca pearls with the coconut milk and let sit for 1 hour.
- Add the honey, salt, vanilla bean paste and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
- Once at a boil, reduce the heat to low and continue cooking for 5 minutes while stirring.
- Remove 1 cup of the tapioca pudding and slowly mix into the beaten eggs. Gradually adding the pudding will help prevent the eggs from scrambling.
- Once combined, add the egg mixture to the pot and stir in with the rest of the pudding.
- Cook on low for 2-3 minutes while stirring constantly, do this until the pudding has thickened.
- Serve hot or allow to cool.
- As I mentioned above, the tricky part of this recipe is not letting it burn or scramble. Always keep stirring the pudding mix in the pot, if you’re unable to stir then remove it from the heat while you do whatever needs to be done.
- To avoid scrambling the eggs, very slowly mix in the pudding mix with the eggs. Adding it too fast may cause the eggs to scramble. Also, avoid turning the temperature up too high on the stove when you mix it back into the main pudding mix.
- You can leave the honey out but keep in mind that this will leave the pudding without a sweetener. Even though honey is paleo friendly, it’s best to not to go overboard with it, so I don’t recommend adding any more than the recommended amount.

This information doesn’t take into account any extras that you might have with the pudding such as fruit.
