Fruit Custard

Making fruit custard is one easy way of reaching my 5-a-day target. Fruits are instant energisers and love to include them everyday in some form or the other. This recipe has been requested by my friends several times but i miss out taking snapahots every time . I made this for 'Oliver's Picnic' recently.

You can use any fruits of your choice but try to avoid citrus fruits as it doesn't go well with custard.

Apricots - 2
Plums- 2
Blush Pears -2
Pink Lady Apples - 2
Kiwi - 2
Instant Custard Powder - 1 pack
whole Milk - 3/4 of a pint
Sugar - 1/4 cup (optional)

Preparation Method:
   In a wide bowl,  mix the instant custard powder with  3/4 pint of whole milk with hand thoroughly without lumps and clots.

 Start cooking a medium flame for 5 minutes and stir occasionally.Bubbles starts coming up at this stage

Stir continously for another 3 minutes. Add sugar and stir for a couple of minutes and switch off the stove .Cool it down.Once the custard is cooled down .Chop the fruits and add the fruit slices to the custard.

Mix the custard and the fruits well and refrigirate it for atleast 10 minutes. Best served Chilled!
