This Matcha Tapioca Pudding is the perfect end-of-summer dessert! It’s easy, unique, and delicious. It keeps well in the fridge, so you can easily make it ahead of time. Add whipped (coconut) cream and strawberries or raspberries to put this recipe over the top. Although I normally go for chocolate desserts, I make an exception for this Matcha Tapioca Pudding because it’s so good!
Writing this blog post makes me remember how long ago I photographed this recipe — July Fourth, actually! I don’t know why I waited for a month to post it, but sometimes I just juggle recipes around in my editorial calendar. Before I know it, I’ve migrated them way too far forward and I start kicking myself for not sharing them sooner. It’s okay, though; this recipe is pretty perfect for all seasons. I’m calling it a “late summer” recipe because a) I’m posting it in late summer and b) it’s pretty cool and refreshing.
This recipe isn’t limited to summer, though — you could definitely make it in the fall, winter, or spring. Strawberries are technically a summer fruit, but you can get them pretty much year-round. If you’re into seasonal produce and farmers’ markets and all that jazz, you can just use different fruits. I bet some winter citrus would be delicious on top of this Matcha Tapioca Pudding!
I know tapioca pudding looks kinda gross, but I think it’s one of the most delicious desserts ever! As a kid, I liked tapioca pudding even more than chocolate pudding . . . weird, right? Although conventional tapioca pudding has milk and refined sugar, this Paleo version has almond milk, coconut milk, and maple syrup! Plus, tapioca pearls are naturally Paleo, since they only contain tapioca starch.
I went back to school this week, and it’s going pretty well so far. This won’t be an easy year, (since I’m taking six AP classes & doing a bunch of extracurriculars) but it’ll be a fun year! I’m excited to see where this year will take me. It’s fun to think about all the adventures and challenges ahead.
Have a great day! If you try this Matcha Tapioca Pudding, a) you’ll love it!! & b) please share a photo with me so I can see it! It makes my day!
p.s. You could totally eat this for breakfast . . . not that I’ve done that or anything! 😉
