Tapioca Trifle with Chocolate Pudding

Coconut Tapioca Pudding:
1/3 cup small pearl tapioca
3/4 cup water
1 cup coconut milk
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar, divided
2 eggs, separated
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup shredded coconut

Chocolate Pudding:
2 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
3 egg yolks
4 teaspoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
Chocolate for garnish

For Chocolate Pudding:
1) Combine 1 1/2 cups milk, sugar, and cocoa powder in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk and bring to a slight simmer.
2) In a medium bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup milk, corn starch, egg yolks, vanilla, and a pinch of salt.
3) Slowly whisk in about 1 cup of the hot liquid mixture into the egg yolk mixture in a steady stream. Then whisk the hot, tempered egg mixture back into the saucepan with the rest of the milk mixture. Return to low heat.
4) Heat the pudding over low heat, stirring regularly, scraping the bottom to ensure it isn’t sticking. Continue to heat until the mixture is thick, 3-4 minutes.
5) Remove from heat and let cool until room temperature, whisking occasionally to prevent a skin from forming. Layer into jars or chill, covered with plastic wrap.

For Tapioca:

1) Combine tapioca with water in a medium saucepan. Let sit for 30 minutes off the heat.
2) Add coconut milk, milk, 1/4 cup sugar, salt, and egg yolks. Stir over low heat until mixture is simmering. Simmer, uncovered, stirring regularly, 10-15 minutes until pudding is thick.
3) Using a stand mixer or a whisk, beat the egg whites from the eggs with the sugar until they form soft peaks. Fold about a cup of the tapioca mixture into the egg whites, being careful not to over-stir the mixture. Then fold the egg white mixture back into the tapioca. Return to low heat and stir regularly for 3-4 minutes while mixture thickens.
4) When pudding is really thick, remove from heat and stir in shredded coconut and vanilla.
Layer puddings in jars, starting with chocolate and store in the fridge. Optionally garnish with shaved chocolate

  1. YUM! This combines two of my favorite dessert and kicks it up a notch with the addition of coconut! Nicely done and can't wait to try it.

    1. thank you and I hope you find a chance to try it so you can taste how great it is

  2. I love pudding made from scratch. So much better than the box stuff. Interesting idea to layer these two flavors. I like them both, so this would probably be really good!

    1. so agree with you the box pudding is great if you are in a hurry but home made is always best. You should try it to find out for yourself
