These banoffee pie tapioca puddings are made of a creamy coconut tapioca pudding and the BEST banana caramel sauce. Easy to prepare and ready in under 30 minutes!



Tapioca pudding

  • 1 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup tapioca pearls

Banana caramel

  • 2 medium bananas
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup cashew soaked overnight
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • a pinch of salt


  • Crushed roasted peanuts
  • Shredded coconut
  • Banana slices


  1. Prepare the tapioca pudding. Stir together the coconut milk, almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract and salt in a medium saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low and add the tapioca pearls. Cook for about 15 minutes, stirring constantly, until the the liquid has been absorbed and the mixture has thickened.
  2. Pour the tapioca pudding into small glass jars and allow to completely cool down. Store in fridge until serving.
  3. Prepare the banana caramel sauce. Peel and slice the banana. Melt the coconut oil in a sauce pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the banana slices and the maple syrup and cook for around 2 minutes on each side until golden.
  4. Rinse and drain the soaked cashews. Place in a high speed blender with the caramelized banana, vanilla extract and salt. Blend until perfectly smooth and creamy.
  5. Pour the banana caramel sauce on top of the tapioca puddings and sit in fridge for 10 minutes to firm.
  6. Garnish with crushed toasted peanuts and shredded coconut before serving.


  1. The plain tapioca pudding (without the banana caramel) can be stored in fridge for up to a week.
  2. To prepare the cashew, simply soak in clear water overnight or for at least 6 hours to soften. Rinse well and drain before using.
