Cherimoya Custard Pudding With Caviar Lime

One of the Internet’s favorite cherimoya recipes is, by far, cherimoya custard pudding. That’s no surprise if you’re familiar with the naturally custard-like texture of cherimoya. Pinterest is abundant with cherimoya custard pudding delicacies that compliment this fruit’s unique flavor with other tart and tropical fruit flavors. As for us, we’re particularly fond of this cherimoya and caviar lime custard pudding recipe. This is one decadent dessert that aims to please dairy fans, vegetarians, vegans, fruitarians, gluten-free peeps and anyone with a nut allergy. The cherimoya really has a way of bringing everyone together! 

In this recipe, we’re pairing cherimoya with another one of our favorite fruits, the caviar lime. Here, the unique natural creaminess of cherimoya flesh is highlighted with a touch of lime for tart sweetness. 

The only thing a dessert this rich and decadent needs is, of course, caviar! Caviar lime, that is. Just a touch of those crunchy, explosive bubbles of tart caviar lime make this cherimoya custard pudding an instant favorite. Serve this easy cherimoya recipe in little bowls, then sit back as everyone sings your praises.

Once you make this limey cherimoya custard pudding, you’ll see that it’s a recipe that you can easily adjust to suit your preferences. Not into coconut? Try regular whole milk, almond or cashew milk instead. Not into lime? Leave it out or swap it for something different like a ¼ tsp of matcha powder. Fresh out of caviar limes? Try cacao nib or fine coconut flakes for texture. This is a great recipe to get you started on your quest for the perfect cherimoya custard pudding!

  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 caviar lime (optional)


  • Blender
  • Sharp knife

  • Using a sharp knife, slice the cherimoyas in half lengthwise. Remove the flesh from the peel with a spoon and remove all seeds. Discard the peel and seeds. Place the cherimoya flesh into a blender. 
  • Add all of the remaining ingredients except for the caviar lime to the blender with the cherimoya. Pulse or blend the mixture for a few seconds until the consistency is smooth.
  • Pour the mixture into two serving dishes. Sprinkle half of the caviar lime pulp onto each serving. If you’re skipping the caviar lime, sprinkle a dusting of lime zest over the top of the individual cherimoya puddings. Cover with a lid and refrigerate for 1-2 hours until completely chilled for the silkiest pudding consistency. Serve and enjoy!
