Dragon Fruit Pudding

This Diwali try this quick and fruity dessert with these dragon fruit.These elegant make-ahead desserts are ideal for a stress-free finale to a smart dinner. The combination of fragrantly perfumed dragon fruit combined with whipped cream and full fat milk make these desserts totally delicious. You can whip them up in advance and chill in the fridge for several hours so they’re perfect for easy entertaining and look stunning served in glasses with a spoonful of dragon fruit on the top. This spiny-skinned orb is easy to cut and peel, and its white or pink flesh delivers a subtle flavour reminiscent of melons. Your taste buds are about to be tickled pink!


  1. 1- Dragon Fruit
  2. 1/2 litre Full Cream Milk
  3. 1/2 tsp Agar Agar powder ( about 3gms)
  4. 1 cup fresh Cream
  5. 3/4 - 1 cup Sugar
  6. 1/4tsp Vanilla essence 
  • Cut the passion fruit in half and scoop out the pulp and refrigerate at least 30 minutes before using.
  • Mash all fruits in a blender or a food processor until smooth with fresh cream.
  • Bring milk mixed with the agar powder to a simmer. Cook, stirring frequently, until agar is completely dissolved.
  • Blend fruit mixture and milk- agar mixtures and pour the blend to the pudding moulds that you are going to serve.
  • Press a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of each pudding and set it as such in the fridge (not in freezer) until serving time. 
That’s it! Very easy, light and soooo yummy! This pudding can be stored in the fridge for couple of days – but usually it’s gone really quickly:)

  1. When buying passion fruit look for ones with uniformly pink in colour this shows they’re ripe and will have the best flavour.
  2. Avoid dragon fruit that has spots and is hard.Also avoid if you see brown leaves or a dry, brown stem.
