Ingredients

  • 2 cups unsweetened original almond milk
  • 0.5 oz (14 g) gelatin sheet or powder (or 0.1-oz/3-g agar strips for vegetarian diet)
  • 5 tablespoons sugar , divided
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups strawberries

Instructions

  • (1) Bring 1 cup almond milk to a boil. Turn off heat and add the gelatin. Stir until dissolved completely.
  • (2) Add 4 tablespoons sugar and the almond extract. Stir until dissolved.
  • (3) Add the remaining 1 cup almond milk and stir to mix well. Pour the mixture through a fine sieve into a 8”x8” (20x20cm) baking pan. Place in the fridge until set, 1 hour or so.
  • (4) Meanwhile, prepare the strawberries. Quarter the strawberries and mix them with the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar. Cover with plastic wrap and transfer to the fridge to macerate.
  • (5) When ready to serve, run a knife around the edge of the pudding to loosen it, then cut it into 1/2-inch (1 cm) squares. Use a rubber spatula to release the pudding and transfer it into serving bowls. Add the strawberries along with the macerating liquid. Enjoy!

Notes
