Fruit Juice Pudding (Saftkram)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Kaarin

This is the traditional dessert at my community's Swedish smorgasbord. It's a sweet thin-set pudding served with milk or cream. I like this made with grape or any dark red berry juice. From my Grandma's "Swedish Food" cookbook.

This is a bit of a prereview as my pudding has not fully set. I made mine with one of those carb control cranberry juices and splenda. Added the Splenda after cooking which experience says is best. Tastes wonderful but has a slight brownish color so I added 2 drops of red food coloring to make it appear a bit brighter. Looking forward to this guilt-free treat.
