Pearl Sago Pudding
Like all our dog food recipes, our Pearl Sago Pudding is a dog-safe dessert that can be enjoyed and appreciated by you and your entire family. To your dog it might be sago pudding for dogs. To you and the rest of your family it’s just a deliciously creamy pearl sago or tapioca pudding!
- ⅓ cup Small Pearl Sago (Tapioca)
- ¾ cup Water
- 2 ¼ cups Almond Milk
- ½ cup Maple Syrup
- 2 Eggs (separated)
Soak the sago in a large saucepan of water for 30 minutes. Do not drain any remaining water.
Add the almond milk and lightly beaten egg yolks to tapioca and stir over medium heat until boiling. Simmer uncovered over very low heat for 10-15 minutes, stirring often.
Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Fold about ¾ cup of hot tapioca into the egg whites, then gently fold mixture back into saucepan. Stir over low heat for about 3 minutes.
Serve warm or chilled, plain or with fruits, nutmeg or coconut mixed in. (We make ours, pictured above, with blueberries. Rich in antioxidants, blueberries are dog-safe and beneficial to the health of your best friend).
About this Recipe
You can use any type of milk in this sago pudding for dogs, but some dogs are lactose intolerant so cow’s milk is not ideal. We have used almond milk because it’s something dogs can happily tolerate.
Fresh eggs are best for separating. You can use old eggs but it they don’t separate, just add the eggs whole with the syrup when you add the milk.
You can add the eggs at the beginning – it just won’t be as fluffy.
For your non-canine family, add sugar to taste. (Definitely no sugar for your dog though)!

At The Dog Chef, we use only human-grade ingredients in our dog treats and homemade dog food. With ingredients approved by our resident dog nutritionist, this dessert is safe for you, your family and your dog to enjoy.
In this particular dessert, we have used almond milk because many dogs are lactose intolerant. So if you make this to share with your dog, we recommend the use of almond milk. If it is just for you and the rest of your family to enjoy, normal cow’s milk will do just fine.
