Cool and colorful summer treat Fruit Custard recipe with step-wise pictures. Learn how to make homemade eggless custard without custard powder!
Summer is officially upon us and it’s already crazy hot in my part of the world. Days are humid, sticky and the thought of standing the kitchen is driving me crazy. But then food is my biggest stress buster, so I really cant step away from the favorite place in my home. I have decided to start making summer specials as early as March and that’s the only way we are going to survive this harsh summer. So the first summer special for this year is going to be Fruit Custard recipe.
Fruit Custard is such a simple dessert recipe that all one needs to do is make fruit salad and then pour over homemade custard over it. There are a lot of packaged custard powders out in the market, in various flavors too. I however decided to make eggless custard from scratch without using custard powder. If you really think about it, custard powder is nothing but a flavored thickening agent – either corn flour or arrow root powder.
I made a simple vanilla custard and used the fruits I had handy to make this simple yet delicious Fruit Salad Custard recipe. You can serve this chilled or at room temperature and, this works best as a make ahead dessert too. Chop all the fruits you have and prepare the custard, set it up as fruit custard in single serve bowls, chill. That’s all. I used corn flour, vanilla essence and a pinch of food color (totally optional) to make this basic vanilla custard. It’s eggless, it’s easy and it’s quite delectable too! A perfect summer treat made in a jiffy 🙂 Check out other summer special recipes too!
