  2. In a saucepan mix milk, tapioca and sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. When the mixture begins to boil, reduce the heat to a minimum and cook for 15-20 minutes, without stopping stirring. 
    Separate the whites from the yolks, grind the yolks with a whisk or fork.

  3. Constantly stirring, add one tablespoon of a hot mixture of tapioca with milk to the yolks. If you add the whole mass to the yolks at once, the yolks will curl. Thus mix half the mass of tapioca with milk with the yolks.

History of the Healthy Tapioca Pudding: Tapioca is a starch extracted from the roots of cassava, a plant native to South America. This ingredient made its way into desserts in the 19th century when it became a popular ingredient in British puddings. Eventually, tapioca pudding became a staple dessert in North America, often flavored with vanilla and served either hot or cold.

Tips and Tricks for Healthy Tapioca Pudding Recipe: One important tip to keep in mind when making tapioca pudding is to stir constantly. Tapioca has a tendency to clump together, so it's essential to keep it moving while it cooks. You can also adjust the sweetness of the pudding by adding more or less sugar, depending on your preference. If you're vegan or lactose intolerant, you can substitute cow's milk with almond or soy milk.

Tips for presenting the dish: Tapioca pudding can be a simple yet elegant dessert when presented with fruit or berry garnishes. You can add sliced strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries on top of the pudding to add a pop of color and extra flavor. To make the dish look even more stylish, you can serve it in clear glass bowls or jars, layering the tapioca and fruit for a visually stunning effect.
