Pineapple helps to keep your body cool and overcome the summer heat. This quick and easy pineapple pudding is one our favorite treats during the summer season.

One of the reasons this recipe is so easy is that it doesn't require fresh pineapple. The wonderful fruit flavor comes from just a few drops of pineapple essence.

1 hour 20 min

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons gelatin
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon pineapple essence
  • A few drops yellow food coloring

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, add the cold water and gelatin. Mix well so there are no lumps. After it is completely mixed, set aside.
  2. To a pan, add the milk and granulated sugar. Mix well over low heat until the sugar dissolves completely. Make sure the milk does not boil. Once the mixture is hot, switch off the heat.
  3. Add the prepared gelatin mix to the hot mixture and mix well until it completely dissolves. Since the gelatin should have become semi-solid, it might require thorough mixing for it to completely dissolve in the milk.
  4. After the gelatin has completely dissolved, set it aside to cool.
  5. Once it has cooled, add the whipping cream and beat with a hand mixer starting at low speed and gradually moving to high speed. After the beating process, the volume of the mixture should almost double.
  6. Add the pineapple essence and beat well.
  7. Add a few drops of yellow food coloring and mix well.
  8. Once everything is mixed well and a thick consistency is reached, the pudding is ready. Pour it into a pudding mold and refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour.
  9. Once set, cut it into the shapes you prefer and serve chilled.

Hi Liza!! Fresh pineapples can be used, and it would bring in the natural flavor. Please do give it a try. I'm sure you're going to love it. Thanks a lot.

I love pineapple. Last week, I have made pineapple and mango smoothies. Pineapple pudding would be a great addition to my dessert list. I wonder if I can use a fresh pineapple. Thanks for sharing, Heera.
