Large Pearl Brazilian Tapioca Pudding

1 ½  Cups Tapioca

3 Cups Milk


Soak the pearls in the Milk for 24 hours in the refrigerator.


Use a Double-Boiler to prevent scorching.  I made one from two different sized pans (see photo).  Put water in the bottom pan.

Bring the following to a boil while stirring constantly:


6 Cups Milk

6 egg yolks (beaten)

1 ½ Cup Sugar

Large Pearl Tapioca (drained)

½ teaspoon salt


Cook for approximately 20 minutes until thickened.


Remove from heat and stir in:


2 teaspoons Vanilla


Cool for about 15 minutes and use this time to whip:


6 Egg Whites (whipped to soft peaks)


Fold beaten egg whites gently into Tapioca Pudding.  This method gives a light, airy texture to the finished pudding.

Pour the mixture into a serving bowl and or individual crystal parfait glasses.  The translucent Tapioca Pearls will show through the glass like “sweet” caviar.

You may garnish with Whipped Cream before serving. I served with  fresh banana slices, whipped cream and was delighted to find delicious Coconut cookies made in Brazil.  See Photo for brand names used.
