profnot, I found a successful vegan recipe that omits all dairy. She suggests soaking the tapioca pearls in the non-dairy milk overnight. Even though the recipe is called "Gluten-Free Vegan Coconut Mango Tapioca Pudding", it might have some helpful hints that don't involve ingredients you don't care to us.

I still can't eat it today.
My Mom loved it as a kid and adult. She would call it "fish eyes in glue" and neither of her sisters could eat it. More for Mom!

Didn't bother me in the least no matter what Mom called it, I liked the stuff. She would make more so she had plenty, too.

Interesting how currently relevant that statement is today.

I would say soak the tapioca overnight and then make the pudding. I love the stuff, but since it is mostly starch and sugar, I can't eat it on my current diet.

Soaking the tapioca pearls in the almond or soy milk worked great!

And since I added cardamom and nutmeg, the taste was lovely.

Thank you so much for the tips!!!
