Creamy Almond Pudding Recipes with Lemon

This creamy and fluffy pudding dessert has a magnificent flavor and it would be great for serving at a dinner party. The cream cheese, heavy cream, and evaporated milk give it an amazing creaminess and the vanilla, lemon juice, and almond liqueur add a subtle yet wonderful flavor. This dessert is made with gelatin so it stays white. The gelatin gives it a great texture, holding it together, so you can serve it in scoops. Alternatively, you could make this in separate serving glasses and serve it in those or you could use smaller gelatin molds and unmold it before serving.

The garnish is up to you. Chocolate chips, either dark, milk or white, work well, or you could use chocolate sprinkles or shaved chocolate curls. You could even make a cold sauce for this gelatin dessert recipe or use ice cream syrup. Perhaps you have tried an almond milk rice pudding recipe before and this dessert is not too dissimilar in flavor.

This fluffy gelatin dessert needs to set, so leave it in the refrigerator overnight or for a minimum of eight hours. As long as it is covered, it is fine in there for up to a whole day, so if you are looking for make ahead gelatin recipes this is a very good one. Do not add the chocolate sprinkles until just before serving though, for the best results. You might like to serve some whipped cream on the side, just to make this wonderful almond pudding even more decadent.
