The package says I should soak it in water overnight. Do I have to do it?
No! Thanks to the Instant Pot, you don't have to soak the tapioca even for 1 minute. The Instant Pot does all the work!
Do I have to use vanilla extract?
No. This Instant Pot tapioca pudding would still be great without vanilla extract.
Instead of vanilla, you can use orange extract or lemon juice.
Should I serve it hot or cold?
This Instant Pot tapioca pudding will be firmer when it cools, so that you can choose to serve a smooth hot custard or a firm and cold pudding.
Both ways are fine 🙂
Do I have to use a plain milk?
No. You can replace the milk with almond milk or soy milk.
Can I keep it for later use?
Yes. You can keep it for up to 3 days in the fridge.

Just finished my first batch of tapioca--perfect results! Question: seems to me that pre-heating the water would circumvent the time needed to soften the tapioca pearls & yet this has been recommended by several reviewers. Your thoughts?
