This recipe is an easy way to enjoy coffee in pudding form. Note this recipe calls for instant tapioca.

ACTIVE TIME: 15 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 3 hours and 15 minutes


2 cups strong brewed coffee

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
1/2 cup instant tapioca
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup heavy cream


1-In a medium saucepan combine coffee, 1/2 cup sugar, tapioca, vanilla, and salt. Stir well and let sit for 5 minutes.

2-Bring mixture to a full boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. You’ll know it’s ready when the mixture continues bubbling while being stirred. Remove from heat and divide among 4 serving glasses (highball glasses work well). Chill for 2-3 hours.

3-In the bowl of a stand mixer combine heavy cream and one tablespoon of sugar. Using the whisk attachment whip until peaks form. Divide whipped cream among chilled portions.
