Blueberry And Lime Dessert (Sainsbury’s) [By @Cinabar]

How pretty are these new puddings from Sainsbury’s? I just love the fact that from the side you can see the blueberries floating in the jelly and the nice layers. I spotted them on the shelf and just had to get them.
The very top layer of this pudding is pink in colour, and is an opaque blueberry jelly. It is only a thin section, but it has a sweet berry flavour, with a hint of a floral twist from the blueberries. The next layer is the clear jelly, and this forms the main part of the dessert. It has a zesty lime flavour that is fresh and tasty. There are some fresh blueberries floating in the jelly too, with obviously a very natural taste! One of the ones in mine was quite sharp, but the jelly balanced it out. The citrus taste goes surprisingly well with the blueberries, and makes a good fruity medley. I can’t remember having seen lime and blueberry combined together before, but the zesty taste of lime with the fragrant blueberries is a really good fruit match. I couldn’t help but think it would make a lovely combination for a summer drink too.
These desserts are perfect for a light summer pudding with their lovely fresh and fruity flavours. They are sweet and easy to eat, and I love the look of the jelly too. These would be more refreshing on a hot (or muggy) evening than a hot pudding with custar, and it is nice to see Sainsbury’s bringing out some lighter options.
