Five Food Finds about Tapioca Pudding

  • Tapioca pudding (similar to sago pudding) is a sweet pudding made with tapioca and either milk or cream.
  • Coconut milk is also used in cases in which the flavor is preferred or in areas in which it is a commonplace ingredient for cooking.
  • It is made in many cultures with equally varying styles, and may be produced in a variety of ways. Its consistency ranges from thin (runny), to thick, to firm enough to eat with a fork.
  • The pudding can be made from scratch using tapioca in a variety of forms: flakes, coarse meal, sticks, and pearls. Many commercial packaged mixes are also available.
  • British schoolchildren have traditionally nicknamed the dish frog spawn, due to its appearance. American children often call it fish eyes and glue.
