When served chilled with a scoop of ice-cream or just on its own, no dessert can compete with this beautiful, relatively-healthy fruit custard. Now that the summer is around the corner and different varieties of fruits and berries are in abundance, making this delicious fruity dessert could be a real joy! I have noticed that the oranges and clementines taste more delicious in summer months than in the winter. Adding a lot of it will give this dish a noticeable zing !
As for the custard, no other flavour will beat the banana flavour as it goes deliciously well with this dessert. Also, to give an exotic look you can add vanilla ice cream topped with coloured sprinklers or scatter some jelly cubes.
I believe that this is the best way to sneak a lots of fruits into kids’ diet without much cajoling. If you are serving for kids under 5 years, make sure to cut the fruits into small pieces to avoid any chocking hazards.
This is very easy to make, once you gather an assortment of fruits and a packet of Laziza banana flavour custard powder.
Let’s make it:
- Follow the instructions in the back of the packet and make the custard and leave it to cool.
- Cover with a cling film and place the dish in the fridge.
- 1/2 hr before serving, sllice fruits and collect them in a bowl.
Go for bananas, oranges, apples, mangoes, kiwis, red / green grapes, cherries, blue berries, papaya, pinapple
- Add the fruits to the custard cream and mix.
- Place in the fridge until chilled.
- Place a scoop of ice cream or toss some jelly cubes and sulthanas just before serving.
- Serve within an hours time.
- Enjoy the delicious melody of fruits laced with scented banana flavour custard.
- Remember to mix the required amount of custard powder in a small amount of milk first and then gradually add to the boiling milk while stirring as per the instructions in the packet.
- Keep stirring the boiling milk with custard until it thickens slightly. Do not stop stirring or else it will burn from the bottom. Also, you have to stir it even after taking out of the flame to avoid forming any lumps.
- I add 2 tbsp of sugar to 2 tbsp of custard powder for a sweeter taste.
