Funny thing – I have tapioca pearls in my cupboard for months and just couldn’t find any inspiration to use it until today. Just reading about the gluten-free diet, I stumbled on tapioca and suddenly remembered about them sitting in my cupboard. And all it took was a spark to light up my imagination and so this pudding was born – pudding or verrines, call it whatever you like, it’s doesn’t even matter considering how delicious it is!
This berry tapioca pudding is both gluten-free and lactose-free and it uses tapioca pearls and coconut milk. Oh and it uses agave syrup as sweetener so I guess it’s also sugar-free. I added the berries as I needed a flavor kick, but they’re not compulsory – the pudding itself is delicious and your favorite jam makes an excellent topping once the pudding is done. Nothing fancy, just pure joy in desserts!

I am a self-taught baker and pastry-school graduate and I have an affinity for food. But I especially love baking, taking pictures, exploring dessert cookbooks, entremets and writing. I focus on creative desserts and baking techniques that are aimed to both novices and experts in the kitchen and I truly believe that being a pastry chef is not about looking for innovative ways of making desserts, but about learning the basic techniques and then combining them into new, original desserts, relying on textures and flavors.
