Fruit Custard

My son is very much fond of fruit juices.. He drinks whichever he finds colorful and yummy. No meal and no day gets complete without juice for him. I used to fear during every vacation as we don't get as many varieties of fruit juices there as available here that too in smaller sizes. But somehow every time he adjusts and enjoys his stay there. 

When it comes to eating fruits; he eats only banana. Rarely he eats apple. Other fruits are like aliens to him. He comes nearby the chopped fruits, says its color and runs in no time fearing I would make him eat. Its fun to hear him say dark blue and light blue as he has started identifying the dark and light shades of colors recently. But making him eat is the toughest and tiresome job. So I thought I shall add those fruits in custard.. I failed in my mission; he didn't even bother to try.. !!!


Fruits (I used Pomegranate, Apple and Grapes)
Custard Powder 2 1/2 tbsp
Milk 2 cups
Sugar 2 1/2 tbsp


Add custard powder in a bowl.

Add two cups of milk in a pan. Take 2 1/2 tbsp of milk from that milk and combine with the custard powder. Mix well and keep it aside.

Add sugar to milk and allow boiling. When the sugar gets completely dissolved, add the custard powder and continue stirring. 

Remove from flame when the desired consistency is reached.

Keep it aside until it reaches room temperature. Refrigerate for at least half an hour. Add chopped fruits and serve.

Notes: After adding custard powder, the milk thickens much faster. So remove from flame before it reaches the thickening stage as it further thickens on refrigerating.

You can use other fruits like pineapple, banana, kiwi, pear according to your taste and preference.
