Fruit Custard Recipe | Mixed Fruit Custard | Fruit Salad with Custard Milk

This fruit custard is bringing me so many childhood fond memories with mom. I still remember the days when we bought our first refrigerator. (in 90's, when I was in grade 1 or 2). Soon after we have the fridge at home, mom makes this custard fruit salad, icecream using readymade mix (sprinkled with mixed fruits & tutti frutti,) ice popsicle of different fruit flavors and much more. Weekends are a real treat for me since I can relish on the homemade chilled stuff. Though mom is an expert in regular cooking, she always explores and tries new recipes. Maybe, I inherited this from her and I am thankful. Last month, when I visited my friend's place here in Sydney for a birthday celebration, I got a chance to taste this fruit custard again. Though I have already posted this custard with tricolored fruits for an event, I wanted to share this recipe here. This time I used readymade custard, however, you can check the previous link to prepare custard sauce at home. Let's move on to the recipe:

Vanilla Flavoured custard - 1 Cup (check the link for home made custard)
Mixed Fruits: 
Pomegranate pearls - 1/2 Cup
Mango - 1(small)
Banana - 1/2(Big) or 1(small) 
Apple - 1/2 
Kiwi - 1 
Blueberry - 10
1. Check the link here to prepare homemade custard sauce and get ready with 1 cup of custard. Refrigerate the custard for a minimum of 1 hour. If using store bought custard, keep it in the fridge until we serve. Chop the fruits finely. 
2. In a serving bowl, add half of chopped mixed fruits and pour the custard on top of it. Mix it well and serve it chilled.
The yummy and delicious custard can be served as a dessert after lunch and kids will love  it for sure.
Points to remember:
  • Make sure the fruits used are sweet to get delicious fruit custard. If many fruits show the sourness, then the taste of the custard won't be good. In the fruits I used, Kiwi alone gave mild sourness which was compensated by other fruits.
  • You can also add fruits like grapes, pineapple and papaya.
  • The fruit choices and the sweetness of the custard can be altered as per your preference.
Warm Regards,
