Fruit Custard


Fruit Custard is an easy to make delicious chilled dessert. This dessert is prefect for summers as it is served chilled and consist of fresh fruits. Every bite of Fruit custard is sweet and creamy along with the right combination of tanginess from the fruits. It is liked by people of all ages whether kids or old people. The fruit custard can also be served along with a slice of vanilla cake or fruit cake.
This fruit custard recipe is quite simple and also does not take much time in preparation. It can be prepared well in advance and chilled till the time of serving. I have used the seasonal fruits in vanilla flavoured custard. You can use any fruits of your choice or whatever fruits which are available in your local market as the fruits produce changes from season to season.
I have used Brown & Polson custard powder (buy here). The instructions along with the proportions are clearly mentioned at the back of the carton as you can see below. I am sharing the brand name and images as many times after sharing the recipes I get inquiry from people regarding the brand of ingredients used. 



You can use any brand of custard powder of your choice. However I would advice you to read the instructions at the back of the cartoon carefully as sometimes different brands suggest different quantities of milk or custard powder to be used.
Hope you would like this custard recipe!!



List of Ingredients: (Makes up to 10 servings)

  • Milk-1 litres (1000 ml)
  • Sugar- 10 tbsp
  • Custard Powder-6 tbsp
  • Medium sized Apples-2
  • Banana-1
  • Orange-1
  • Pomegranate-1/2 cup
  • Grapes-1 cup
  • Chopped Cashews-1/4 cup
  • Tutti Fruity Bits- 1/4 cup

Steps To Prepare:


Step1:
Separate 250ml from the entire milk.

Step2:
Keep the remaining 750ml milk on low flame for boiling. By the time it is boiling, lets proceed to step 2.



Step3:
Take the 250 ml milk which was kept separate in step1. Dissolve 6 tbsp of custard powder in it. 
(The packet says 2+1/2 tbsp for 1/2 litre which means 5 tbsp for 1 litre but I am writing 6 tbsp here as I tried with 5 tbsp and it was taking too long for thickening).



Step4:
Add sugar to the 750 ml which was kept for boiling. Keep stirring till sugar dissolves. 



You can increase the flame to medium (but please keep a watch on it). Once the milk boils, switch off the flame.


Step5:
Add the custard powder milk to the boiled milk while continuous stirring. Stirring is essential part as you don't want the custard powder to settle down and get burnt. Switch on the flame once again and let it boil while continuous stirring for 2-3 minutes. Switch off the flame once the milk thickens.



Step6:
Transfer the custard into a serving bowl. Let it cool down completely. Keep it in the refrigerator later to chill.

Step7:
Chop all the fruits into small bite sized pieces (except pomegranate) and add them to the chilled custard along with chopped cashews and tutti fruity bits.


Enjoy this cool and fresh dessert on any summer day!!!
