Roasted Peach Tapioca Pudding

Roasted Peach Tapioca Pudding



Pudding for breakfast? Yes please! That is what has been going on around here. Have you ever roasted peaches? Have you ever made tapioca pudding? I love little tapioca pearls, they add such a fun texture to your pudding. Usually tapioca pudding is made with eggs and cream. I lightened my recipe with low fat creamy coconut milk.

Tangy peaches, smooth coconut and tapioca combine to make a dreamy flavor filled experience.

Let’s make some pudding!

Soft, fuzzy peaches are seen all over the local farmers’ market.



I love to roast all kinds of fruit. Earlier this summer I was roasting strawberries like crazy…

Did you have a chance to try my Citrus Roasted Strawberry Parfaits?

You can also bake a batch of  my Sunny Strawberry Sandwich Cookies. Those use roasted strawberries too.


Come to think of it, both of those recipes would be great with these roasted peaches. Just swap out the strawberries for peach ~ or use both!


Coconut is a favorite here as well. All summer I have been making vegan ice cream.

I use it a whole lot in shakes and smoothies too.

You can also find coconut in my breakfast bakes ~ Blueberry Coconut Baked Steel Cut Oatmeal.


This pudding helps to energize us for the beautiful summer days we are enjoying here in Telluride, CO.

Tapioca is a gluten free starch extracted from cassava ~ it is loaded with carbs that get burned quickly with all of our fitness.

hilly hikes…

And impromptu fishing trips on the creek….

Sometimes we even fish on the sidewalk ~ it is all good over here.

My larger camera is often with me, but I also enjoy the casual, light quality of my iPhone.

Sometimes it is nice to have a small click that I can fit in my pocket.

The sun comes and goes throughout the day. Thunderous monsoon rain storms occur frequently. They are followed by glorious bluebird skies. I love the drama of living in the mountains…

I am not sure where the time is going. So many great memories are created each day.


We embrace the passage of time with smiles, giggles and lots of great food.

Roasted Peach Tapioca Pudding



    Roasted Peaches
  • Pre heat oven to 425 degrees with the rack in the middle. Toss peach halves with some lemon juice and coconut oil. Place in a baking dish in a single layer, bake about 25-30 minutes until softened and fragrant.
  • Tapioca Pudding
  • Soak small tapioca pearls in 1 cup of cool water for 1 hour. In a saucepan bring tapioca, coconut milk, salt and cinnamon to a boil. Reduce to a simmer for 8-10 minutes. Stir so your pudding does not stick to the bottom of the pan. Let pudding cool in the refrigerator until ready to use. It will thicken as it cools.
  • Serve warm or cold with roasted peaches and vegan whipped cream.
  • Notes
  • Feel free to use large or small tapioca pearls for this recipe. I chose the small, but both are fabulous!

  1. any one component of this and I’d be so happy
    the peaches – oh they look so gorgeous after the roasting
    the pearls & tapioca – delish
    the vegan creme – I have been coveting this ever since your post about it a month or so ago

    the images – just breathtaking. Sunset magazine and Martha Stewart will be calling soon!

  2. I lovvvve tapioca.. and peaches! I definately will be trying this out soon! Do you think I could use “Instant” Tapioca pearls? I know that that is not ideal, but I think we have some in the back of the cupboard that need to be used up.

    • Andrea, you can try those – though I never have. I am sure it will turn out great!! Just follow the package directions for the tapioca you do have.

  3. I love your recipe for peach tapioca pudding. Your photography is great and makes the pudding look sooo good. I live in Evergreen CO and I love the mountain pictures as well. You should check out my site. I am a registered dietitian and I have a gluten free living site.

  4. I can’t believe it but I’ve never had tapioca pudding. But this recipe with those beautiful roasted peaches has me craving a first try. So pretty, lovely colours. You always have the healthiest, tastiest looking recipes.

  5. I have never made tapioca pudding before but have always wanted to! My Mom used to make it all the time when I was a kid. I love the combination of flavors, Marla!
