Paleo Banana Coconut Tapioca Puddings ! This is a famous Thai tapioca pudding dessert and I made it Paleo friendly !

Do you know that this famous dessert  – Banana Coconut Tapioca Pudding – originally comes from Thailand?

Judging by how many smoothie bowls you’re probably seeing at the sidebar of this post, you’ve probably guessed how much I love these healthy breakfast/dessert/snack recipes.

The texture of this banana coconut pudding actually reminds me of porridge but in a naturally sweet and creamy version.

It tastes great cold or warm and I personally prefer it chilled.

This banana coconut pudding requires no blender at home. Just simmer in a small soup pot and in 10 minutes you’ll have a nice bowl of comfort food.

If you are looking for an alternative to smoothie bowls, give this Thai Banana Coconut Tapioca Pudding a try !!
