Coconut and Lime Tapioca Pudding

Finallllly I am getting around to writing up this delicious recipe. The cold Sydney weather with the really late onset of autumn rains made for the perfect weather to whip up some of this stuff. I don’t make it often… but when I do, it doesn’t last for long at all. I guess I just love pudding, whether it’s tapioca or some spiced Indian kheer.

The recipe is super simple, and can be tweaked in so many ways. You can make it with whole milk, or cream sometimes, or coconut milk. It goes perfectly with whatever seasonal fruit you can get your hands on! But a point to remember is that tapioca is one of the purest forms of starch you can find. If you are trying to cut down that blood sugar then most definitely avoid this stuff at all costs!

You might be wondering… well duh? Why make a dessert if you are trying to cut down on sugar intake? Well tapioca can be used to make savory food too . At home we make a spiced tapioca meal during fasting periods as an alternative to rice or breads. I’m moving way off track here.

Coconut and Lime pudding! How can anyone resist the combination? It’s fun and tropical and really refreshing. It’s the kind that works wonderfully well during the hotter months and cooler months too. Here’s that simple recipe

Easy Spiced Strawberry Tea

Summer is well and truly here in Sydney with the sweltering heat, crazy storms, oh and a random tornado warning too. I guess this is what makes Sydney kind of special. It’s unpredictable you know. It’ll be cool and cold in the morning, humid by mid day, by evening the sun will pop out and say hello before nightfall when the horrendous storm begins.

For anyone planning to come to Sydney, keep a jacket, sunglasses, a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, an umbrella, boots, sandals, and probably your entire suitcase with you at all time.

I know I sound really cynical, but in all honestly, I do love the city. I grew up here, and it’s my very bipolar home. Now, in this bipolar weather conditions… I love making my own flavoured teas. Whether in winter or summer, I love having a cup of tea with me. For summer, I bring out the fun fruits to make these delicious infused teas, and they are so freaking easy to make!

These are a bit of a wonder for the big parties in my opinion. Tea is just such a standard in my house and they make for a fun non-alcoholic option for the crowds. I dunno, I think it’s important to serve some fun non-alcoholic options. Most events I go to its all fancy alcoholic drink and cocktails but nothing fun for those that just don’t drink.

This recipe is so simple though. Just boil up some tea and let the fruit infuse in the water. This sort of remind me of an episode of New Girl where Nick talks about serving ‘Tea water’ to drunk men. Don’t worry… I’m not giving away anything here πŸ˜›

But that’s just because I love tea. There’s nothing wrong with that at all. And who doesn’t enjoy strawberries? Actually, I do know a few people that don’t like strawberries… but seriously.. come on.

I hope you guys like this easy recipe!
