Did you know today is National Tapioca Pudding Day? I honestly had no idea there was a holiday to celebrate this delicious pudding, but it makes total sense! And to sweeten the celebration, the folks over at Kozy Shack® have created the Summer of Pudding. Have you ever had tapioca pudding? Oh my goodness, it really is a wonderful snack! If you are not familiar with tapioca, it is a starch extracted from the cassava root. It is native to Northern Brazil and was carried by the Portuguese and Spanish explorers to most of the West Indies, and parts of Africa and Asia, but is now cultivated worldwide. It is a staple food in many parts of the world and is used as a thickening agent in many foods, including soups and fruit pies! Want to know what else it is good in?

Mock Strawberry Cheesecake Tapioca Pudding Parfait
Now that I am an adult, I can totally appreciate mom’s need for a few moments of solace. I have two energetic teenagers, who although I love dearly, they can get on my last nerve! We live in a small house, so there are not a lot of places I can sneak away and hide for a few minutes. So, we have a deal. When I announce I need some “Mommy Time”, I go into my bedroom for 15 minutes. The kids are not allowed to knock on the door for the duration of my getaway. In return, they get a non stressed mom who comes out with a better attitude than she may have had when she went in! My favorite low fat snack is my mock strawberry cheesecake tapioca pudding parfait using Kozy Shack® tapioca pudding.
You can find the Kozy Shack® tapioca pudding in the 6 pack as well as the 22 ounce size (which is how I buy mine!) In addition to the Kozy Shack® Tapioca Pudding, you can find Kozy Shack® rice and chocolate puddings. They are made with simple, wholesome ingredients, making them simply delicious. It is the only premium pudding made with simple, wholesome ingredients like milk, eggs, sugar and rice. What you will not find are artificial preservatives or hydrogenated oils. They are all a good source of calcium and they are also gluten-free. The Kozy Shack® Tapioca pudding is a classic, made with real tapioca pearls.
This recipe for my mock strawberry cheesecake tapioca pudding parfait using Kozy Shack tapioca pudding is super duper easy! All you need is 5 graham crackers, crushed, 1.5 cups of Kozy Shack® Tapioca Pudding, and strawberries (fresh when in season, frozen when not.). I just layer the graham crackers, Kozy Shack® Tapioca Pudding and the strawberries in a glass until full. Top with a squirt of whipped topping and you have heaven in a glass!
