    Serves: 6 

    • 1 packet strawberry jelly
    • 225ml boiling water
    • 1 tin evaporated milk
    • 1 tin strawberries

    Prep:20min  ›  Extra time:4hr setting  ›  Ready in:4hr20min 

    1. Dissolve the jelly in the boiling water.
    2. While jelly is cooling, whisk the evaporated milk until frothy.
    3. Drain the tin of strawberries and squash to break them up.
    4. Pour the strawberries and the dissolved jelly in with the evaporated milk and whisk up together.
    5. Pour the mixture into a bowl, and leave in the fridge to set.


    You can also use orange jelly and can of mandarin oranges, or oranges with lime jelly. Fruits such as kiwi and pineapple cannot be used because they stop the jelly from setting. You could pipe fresh cream on the top with fresh fruit. For Halloween you could add jelly worms or spiders to the jelly.

    Hi, thanks for this recipe. I love that it's so simple and it brings back memories from childhood! But every time I make it, it separates. What am I doing wrong?  -  19 Feb 2015


    Love it . Reminds me if my childhood . Made 2 changes .. put the strawberries in whole . Love finding them when im eating also had a lot of trifle fingers to get rid of so popped them in .... really really nice )  -  13 Mar 2015


    This is delicious and quite easy to make. I did strawberry jelly and strawberries and it was sweet but not sickeningly so, but very moreish! I am looking forward to trying some other combinations.  -  18 Oct 2014
