Trying to improve on your jelly base pudding? Here is the idea of combining Jell-o with condensed milk using several artificial flavouring and food coloring to get the visually delicious Stained Glass Pudding.

Inspired by a recipe on New York Times, the maker decided to put an attempt to recreate the concoction shown the in title photograph. Anyway, you could put in any of your favorite flavours including pineapple, watermelon , blue raspberry or even orange fusion for more rainbow colours.


It is visually satisfying to view at the delicate coloring, but why don’t you try to make them at the comfort of your lovely kitchen, read on for the pudding’s composition:

Stained Glass Pudding

  • 4-5 3.0 oz packages of Jell-o powder (I used 5, I think 4 would have worked better)
  • 2 packages of Knox plain gelatin powder
  • 1 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk

Making process:

  1. Prepare the Jell-o in separate containers according to the instructions on the package. Let set for 3+ hours in a refrigerator.
  2. Remove the Jell-o from the refrigerator and slice into small cubes or other shapes. Gently place in a 9×13″ pan and toss to mix up the colours.
  3. In a medium bowl, dissolve the plain gelatin packages in 1/2 c cold water. Once the gelatin “blooms” (it will look all bubbly on top), dissolve in 1 1/2 c boiling water, then stir in the condensed milk. Briefly let this mixture cool a bit (so that it does not melt the Jell-o shapes), and into the 9×13″ pan over the Jell-o shapes. At this point, you may want to smooth out the air bubbles on top for a cleaner look (I didn’t). Let set in the refrigerator overnight.

Above should enough for making a 9×13″ tray of Jell-o-ish pudding. Oh my, those should taste good when chilled, don’t they?
