Rated as 4.52 out of 5 Stars

"This is one of my favorite desserts that I get when I go to a Chinese restaurant. With this recipe, it is easy to make it in the comfort of your own home! Serve with some canned fruit cocktail with syrup or just some fresh fruit! It's such a refreshing dessert to enjoy and a very good change from plain gelatin."

I love to add fruit cocktails in this. I also halve the milk into 1 cup of milk, and substitute the other cup of milk of 1 cup of table cream milk (nestle kind). I noticed when I use kiwis or pi...
