anyone ever made tapioca with almond or rice milk? we don't do soy. but just about any other grain or nut milk suggestion would be fine. can you just sub it in a milk based recipe? or does it change the recipe completely?

Just substitute it in the recipe. I substitute non-dairy milk for dairy milk in ANY recipe I find & it always works. It'll just taste more like whatever milk you are using.
We don't do soy either and we do a lot of raw foods. Have you ever tried Chia Seeds? They are SOOO good for you...very high in protein and calcium, and they taste very much like tapioca.


1 tablespoon chia seeds
½ cup non-dairy milk
1 tablespoon shredded coconut
2 tablespoon raisins
1 drop vanilla
1 sprinkle cinnamon
1 teaspoon agave

Combine everything! It works best if you use some sort of container with a lid. That way, you can shake it every few minutes for 30 minutes or so. Then, just let it sit until you're ready to eat it (I usually leave it for a few hours, but you could eat it after the first 30 minutes if you wanted). If you don't have a lid, stir it periodically for the first 30 minutes. If you don't stir or shake it, the chia seeds clump together.

huh? that sounds interesting. where would i look for these chia seeds?
Only thing for kids is they may not like the little seed looking things. I have been thinking of making something like that except using my vitamix to really pulverize them so you can't see them. I just haven't gotten around to it and haven't had expirimenting time or ingredients!
I make tapioca with coconut milk. i usually add soy or hemp milk, but water works just as well, just to help give the tapioca something to soak up. I just throw it all together with some sugar/agave and vanilla and nutmeg, it usually thickens up with the tapioca alone. You could also add bananas as that helps thicken it and sweeten it. I think I've done that a few times.

Most health food stores carry them in the bulk section I believe. At least, ours does...

Tapioca with coconut milk is amazing. Sweetened with agave or maple syrup, and some cinnamon, mmmmmm.
Yep - coconut or almond milk for tapioca, couscous pudding, rice pudding here as well :)

In a pinch you can get a yummy rice pud with a sachet of coconut cream, water and cinnamon as well :)
