Rice Cooker Tapioca Pudding

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by TishT

This uses the whole pearl tapioca...sometimes hard to find in our local grocery. I have been able to get it at Trader Joes sometimes. This is a wonderful way to make tapioca!

First of all your rice cooked must have a porridge setting or you will have problems. The porridge setting has a lower temp and keeps your milk from burning.
Tapioca pearls can be found at Asian food markets for about $1.50 a 16oz bag.
You can use coconut milk, rice milk, or whatever other milk..powdered etc.
I recommend you open the lid and stir 2 or 3 times while it's cooking.
