Fruit Cocktail Pudding

My son has  been bugging  me to  prepare   this super easy Fruit Cocktail Pudding made with agar agar powder and canned fruit cocktail.

Some might like to make use of the sugar  syrup after draining the fruit cocktail  but prefer to throw it away. Make sure the water and sugar syrup combined do not exceed 5 cups. .

To jazz it up, added a few drops of  yellow food coloring.  This step is required if you choose colorless agar agar powder.  You can use any flavor,/color/fruit you prefer. I just happened to have fruit cocktail on hand.

After the agar agar powder has been boiled, pour this mixture into small mold or into one large bowl/container.

If you want something that tastes great and not fattening, this Fruit Cocktail is for you!

Fruit Cocktail Pudding

Serves  12

10 g  white/colored agar agar powder
5 cups water
250 g sugar
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 can 836 g fruit cocktail drained


Dissolve agar agar powder in  deep pot containing 5 cups water.

Add sugar, bring to boil using low heat, stirring continuously.

Add food coloring of your choice if using white and evaporated milk, bring to boil again. Remove from heat.  Mix in drained fruit cocktail, stir well.

Rinse the agar agar  mold, pour the mixture into one large container or use the small one.

Let cool to room temperature, refrigerate until ready to serve.

Hi, I would like to make this, it sounds refreshing! I don't understand this:

Add food coloring of your choice if using white and evaporated milk, bring to boil again. Remove from heat.

Also, when do you add the fruit cocktail?

This looks yummy! I have bookmarked for future reference. I'll have to make it with almond, coconut, or rice milk as one of my boys can't have dairy. Thanks for the recipe! ~Adrienne from Gluten Free Preppers and a member of the Blogger's Pit Stop Crew
