  1. Add the coconut milk to a medium pot with the tapioca and stir it with a balloon whisk until the tapioca is fully incorporated and there are no lumps.

  4. Pour the mix into the jar or jars, put the lid(s) on loosely, then place it in a dehydrator at 86°F degrees for 24 hours.

  1. Hi all. I just want to note that the recipe above has an error, the second ingredient should read 2 tbs Tapioca Starch, not guar gum! They are definitely not the same. Karen from

  2. Hi there,

    This recipe looks awesome. Can\’t wait to try it. Just one Q: in the instructions, you mention tapioca (but not in the ingredient list), and the ingredient list includes guar gum (but not the instructions). Are those the same thing?
