or to taste.*
(3oz) package strawberry jello.
Whipping cream for garnishing.
In a saucepan over medium heat pour 1 1/2 cup of milk, sugar and vanilla extract and mix well together until sugar is completely dissolved.
Heat milk for 5-7 minutes until it starts to bubble around the edges.
Meanwhile, mix corn starch well in the remaining milk then pour into the saucepan.
Continue stirring and cooking the pudding until it thickens, will take about 1.5 minute.
Divide the vanilla mixture into 8 (4oz) dessert cups or ramekins.
Let it chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Dissolve the packet in 1 cup of boiling water then add 1 cup of cold water and mix everything well.
Take the ramekins out of the fridge, put about 2 heaping teaspoons ( more or less if you like) of pomegranate seeds on top of the vanilla pudding.
Now pour the jello carefully over the pomegranate, refrigerate for two hours or until jello is completely set.
Serve cold with whipping cream on top.
* I’ve found that 1/2 cup is too sweet and 1/4 cup is barely enough so I went for 1/3 cup.
