Milk Pudding with Strawberry Coulis

A simple dessert at its best…

You can have this as a pudding or as a pudding drink, either way it’s going to taste yummlicious. One of the desserts I often had while growing up is milk pudding. It’s the easiest and the simplest dessert ever. Just a couple of ingredients and very less time are needed to prepare this and you get to indulge in a delicious dessert. Last week, I tried to give a makeover to my usual milk pudding and it turned out to be delectable. I made milk pudding and strawberry coulis, layered them both, it tasted terrific!
