What kind of strawberries should I use?

For the best flavor and texture, use fresh, ripe strawberries at the peak of season. Avoid using underripe or canned strawberries.

Can I use frozen strawberries?

Yes, you can substitute frozen strawberries. Make sure they are thawed and drained well before making the puree.

What if I don’t have gelatin sheets?

You can substitute gelatin powder. Use 1 1/2 teaspoons of unflavored gelatin powder instead of the sheets. Bloom the powder in 2 tablespoons of cold water for 5 minutes before adding to the pudding.

Can I make it dairy-free?

Yes, you can use full-fat coconut milk instead of heavy cream for a dairy-free version. Just chill the coconut milk well before whipping.

Can I use granulated sugar instead of caster sugar?

Yes, you can substitute an equal amount of granulated sugar. The texture may be slightly less smooth, but the pudding will still taste great.

Tips for Perfect Strawberry Heaven Pudding

  • Use fresh, ripe, in-season strawberries for the best flavor. Underripe berries will be sour.
  • Make the strawberry puree first and let it chill in the fridge to infuse the flavor.
  • Whisk the egg custard over a double boiler for a smooth, silky texture. Don’t let it boil.
  • Let the finished pudding chill for at least 6 hours before serving so it sets up properly.
  • Garnish with sliced strawberries, strawberry jam, and fresh mint leaves.
  • Serve chilled on hot summer days for a cool, refreshing treat.
  • Substitute other berries like raspberries or blackberries for variations.
  • For richer pudding, use mascarpone cheese instead of heavy cream.
  • Store any leftovers in the fridge for 2-3 days. The pudding keeps well.
