I’ve never made tapioca pudding before and always loved it as a kid. When I set my sights on making a rich, glorious version with coconut milk as a base instead of milk and egg, I didn’t realize I’d have a runaway hit in my household. But that’s exactly what happened.

To be fair, I’m currently obsessed with all things coconut, as evidenced here and here. I can’t help myself! I love the decadence and the non–dairiness of it all. I thought it might lend a natural richness and have a perfect floral taste when playing against all those chewy tapioca pearls. I was right! Love it when that happens.

This pudding is great, but the smoked sesame seeds really put it over the edge. Have you worked with this ingredient before? They have a unique taste that adds earthiness and complexity to a velvety pudding. I highly recommend this additional element, but they aren’t absolutely necessary.
