Fruit custard recipe – a creamy easy dessert recipe made with custard powder, milk and fresh fruits, which can be served to a large crowd when hosting get together’s and parties.
Today I want to add my own happiness line, ” Happiness is eating fruit custard”. I believe each one have some memories associated with childhood and fruit custard. Custard had played some part in our childhood. But all I remember is, it would just lift my mood when it was served.
During summer holidays, custard powder packets would always make its space in our monthly grocery list.
Fruit custard would be served only as a dessert for guests usually, but during summer vacation mum would prepare this dish and refrigerate and serve when our hungry souls came home demanding food after hectic time spent in playground.
Fruit custard would be served for friends visiting our home and the same would be served when we visited theirs. But trust me each one felt this- friend’s mum’s fruit custard recipe tasted more good than our own mum’s recipe.
As sun is turning very harsh these days, we have topped our refrigerator with homemade buttermilk, ice lolly’s and fruit custard being the recent addition. This is a very easy recipe which can be prepared in a jiffy. I’ve used easily available fruits in this recipe – apple, banana, grapes, strawberry, pomegranate and mango. I would say apple and banana are must in this recipe.
Serve fruit custard chilled and enjoy this with your loved ones, recreating new custard memories.
