It’s so sad that tapioca pudding is not so common anymore. Light, fluffy, dreamy, sweetness. It was one of my Mom’s favorites and now it is one of mine!

Homemade tapioca pudding is absolutely divine! I remember my mother making it regularly while I was growing up and it was always a special treat when she did! I wanted to make some homemade tapioca but wanted to see how well this recipe translated to the slow cooker. This recipe could not have been any more simple to make….throw all of the ingredients into the crock, mix well and turn it on! Simple, right? This was so yummy that it will definitely be added to our list of family favorites.

What I like most about this recipe is that you throw all of the ingredients into the slow cooker, turn it on and let it cook. Easy prep….no muss, no fuss!

This recipe is both naturally gluten-free and grain-free.
