mixed fruit custard

When I posted custard powder ice cream, I wanted to share this easy fruit custard recipe using eggless vanilla custard powder. This is one of the easiest custard powder recipes and its a good replacement for fruit salad to serve your guests at get-together or for birthday parties. I have been making this for years for all my friends & relatives. Its a very simple recipe but it fetches you more credits for sure.

Initially I used to add only apple & banana and call it as apple custard. Then I got the idea of adding cherries and cashews from Nags blog. But this is a much simplified version. Addition of nuts & cherries make this dessert richer, tastier and colorful too. As mangoes are around, you can try adding it.

Last week when Raksha’s friends came to my house,i made this along with veg fried rice and baby corn fry for lunch. They all loved it. Try this for your kids n family members & have a delectable dessert after an yummy meal. Everybody will love it and ask for more!!. So Lets see how to make this easy fruit custard recipe.
