Chocolate Tapioca Pudding (Dairy & Gluten Free)

Chocolate Tapioca Pudding (Dairy & Gluten Free)

My best friend Nichole turned me on to Tapioca Pudding about 6 years ago. She is an amazing cook and I love everything she makes, but I really love her incredible homemade desserts!

I’ve been wanting to make a good Old Fashioned Tapioca Pudding with coconut milk for quite some time. I’m so glad I finally did and I love the addition of chocolate to the original recipe.
