Tapioca Pudding Recipe for Kids
Tell me that this bowl of tapioca pudding doesn't look like a bowl of Fruity Pebbles or Fruit Loops. The trick is to buy large and colorful tapioca pearls.

Servings: 4 servings
- 1 C large pearl tapioca colorful is the most fun!
- 2 C 2% milk
- 1 C heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 t salt
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 C sugar
- 1/2 t vanilla extract
Combine tapioca, milk, heavy cream, and salt in 1 1/2 quart pan on medium high heat. Stir until boiling.
Simmer 5 minutes, uncovered at the lowest possible heat, adding sugar gradually.
Beat eggs in a separate bowl. Mix in some of the hot tapioca very slowly to equalize the temperature of the two mixtures (to avoid curdling).
Return eggs to pan with tapioca. Slowly bring mixture barely to a boil, stirring constantly.
Reduce heat and stir several minutes at a low simmer, stirring constantly until you get a nice, thick pudding consistency.
Cool 15 minutes. Add vanilla. Serve either warm or chilled.
