Being on an AIP diet may be a bit frustrating initially, especially as one of the first things you consider is the fact that you have to give up sugar.
Well, I have great news for you: the AIP and Paleo diets are very permissive with desserts. There are hundreds of desserts you can try, which are organic, healthy and contain anti-inflammatory ingredients.
Here’s the tapioca pudding recipe that I absolutely love and that you can make out of just 4 ingredients.
Here’s what I used:
1 cup hydrated tapioca pearls
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 tbsp honey
1 mango fruit
* The tapioca pearls should be left for hydrating in filtered water for at least 3 hours. Make sure you add enough water as they enlarge 3 times their size.
Here’s how I’ve done it:
In a small saucepan I added the tapioca pearls on medium heat and added half of the coconut milk.
I stirred continuously using a large tablespoon until the pudding became solid and then I added in the rest of the coconut milk and continued mixing, in total for about 6 minutes. Depending on how thick you like your pudding, you might want to keep it more on less on the heat.
I let it cool for 1 minute and then added in the honey and stirred again the whole thing until it became homogeneous.
I then placed the pudding in cups and let it cool at room temperature for another 20 minutes.
I peeled the mango fruit and prepared each half differently, as I wanted to top my two servings differently: I chopped and blended 1 half until I obtained a puree and I minced the other half in whole square-like pieces.
I then topped the first serving with the puree and the other serving with the whole mango pieces.
Voila! I obtained the mango tapioca pudding two ways: one with mango puree and the other with whole mango pieces!
Now I’m just enjoying my gluten-free/sugar-free/dairy-free AIP pudding while writing this blog post!
