I love making quick and easy fresh desserts for the children that are fun but taste good too. As we have so many strawberries in the garden at the moment I decided to make these Strawberry Jelly and Custard Pots.

The children loved the jelly, loved the custard and loved the fruit surprise in the jelly! It’s probably one of our simplest recipes but one that is fairly healthy and a lovely treat for the children.

Can you make your own custard for this jelly custard recipe?

For this recipe we always use ready made custard – typically in a tin at the supermarket. But you can make your own custard using all the fresh ingredients or with custard powder if you want too.

Can I make different flavours?

We always make strawberry jelly pots but you could mix this up by using orange jelly and chunks or orange, pineapple jelly and chunks of pineapple or any other flavour you feel like. Whatever you go for, the kids will love it!

These jelly pots are such a simple summer family dessert that can be made by re-using ramekins and can be varied with any fruit and jelly flavour you like. You could also use disposable ice cream cups or plastic bowls to make these as a party dessert or treat too. The children love them – especially as they are such bright colours!
