  1. With the tip of a knife, split the vanilla bean in half. Remove the seeds. In a double boiler, heat the milk, coconut milk, 60 ml (1/4 cup) of sugar, salt, vanilla pod and seeds. Sprinkle in the tapioca while stirring. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 40 to 45 minutes or until the tapioca is translucent.
  2. In a food processor, purée 1 and 1/2 of the bananas with half the lemon juice. Set aside.
  3. Dice the remaining banana and toss with the remaining lemon juice.
  4. In a bowl, combine the egg yolks and the remaining sugar with a whisk. Add the mashed bananas. Stir into the tapioca mixture. Continue cooking while stirring until the pudding thickens, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the vanilla pod. If you are using vanilla extract, add it at this time. Remove from the heat. Add the diced bananas.
  5. Serve warm or cold.
