Servings 4


  • ½ Junket Tablet
  • 1 ½ tsp cold water
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 4 ½ tsp granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • a drop of red/pink food coloring optional
  • ½ cup whipping cream
  • 4 ½ tsp powder/confectioner sugar
  • sliced strawberries


  • In a small bowl or cup, dissolve the Junket tablet in the cold water.
  • In a small saucepan, heat the milk to lukewarm (98°F). Remove from the heat.
  • Stir in the granulated sugar, vanilla extract, and food coloring. Then, when the sugar is dissolved, pour the Junket tablet and water into the milk and stir briefly.
  • Pour the mixture into four serving bowls and let sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes. Then, refrigerate until serving time. Ideally, at least 2 hours.
  • When ready to serve, whip the whipping cream with the powder/confectioner sugar until stiff peaks form.
  • Spoon the whipped cream on top of the junket and top with the sliced strawberries. Dust more powder sugar on top if desired.


You can use a whole Junket Tablet for a firmer set.
