Grapefruit Tapioca Pudding

Grapefruit Tapioca Pudding
Serves 3-4.

  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ cup + ¼ cup + ½ cup & 2T freshly-squeezed grapefruit juice
  • ¼ cup small tapioca pearls
  • 1 heaping T vegan powdered sugar, more if needed
  • 3T agar-agar flakes
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla

Soak tapioca pearls for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, stir together all ingredients, but only use the first ½ cup of juice. Bring liquid to a boil, stirring constantly until agar flakes are dissolved. Pour into a large bowl and let cool before transferring to refrigerator. As you wait for the pudding to thicken up, drain the tapioca pearls. Put them in a clean saucepan and cover with water. Simmer gently for 7-10 minutes, until the pearls are tender and glossy. The water will thicken a LOT – don’t be alarmed. Little by little, pour the tapioca pearls and the “water” into a handheld strainer. Turn on some cold water and let it gush over the tapioca at high-speed. Remove the pearls from the strainer with a spoon and repeat until all of the pearls are rinsed. Store in the refrigerator until pudding is firm.

Once firm, blend the pudding with the remaining ½ cup +2T of juice. Taste and add more sugar if necessary. In a small glass or bowl, scoop 1 heaping tablespoon of cooked tapioca pearls. Fill to the top with pudding and garnish with fresh chunks of grapefruit. You can stir in additional pieces of grapefruit if desired.

There is just no advantage to installing a reverse osmosis water system
with today's technological betterments. After researching the subject of drinking water quality and of home water filters and purifiers, he set up a website where he proposes the results of his inquiry for all to consider, to reach independently their conclusions. Since then, things have been going steadily downhill where reverse osmosis water filters are concerned.
