Banana Custard


Simple dessert, takes hardly 10 minutes to make it and really no effort at all. All you gotta do is prepare the custard, put in the vanilla essence, banana slices and garnish with chopped nuts! How easier can it get. You could add more fruits of your choice, like apples, pears, grapes, oranges, peaches, even those canned pineapple slices will go well with it. I would have loved to use a canned fruit cocktail but did not find it at any of the local stores here, not even spar or thoms.
Excellent last minute dessert and a good way to use that ripening banana that you don't wanna eat or waste. :)


• 2 Ripe Banana (or 1 as you wish)
• 15 gms Custard Powder
• 1/4 cup Sugar
• 150 ml Milk
• 1 tsp Almonds (chopped)
• 1 tsp Cashew Nuts (chopped)
• Few drops Vanilla Extract


Peel off bananas and cut into small cubes. 
Mix custard powder and sugar in little milk. 
Boil the remaining milk for 10 minutes. 
Pour the boiled milk into the above mixture. 
Bring the mixture to boil. 
Add banana cubes and vanilla extract. 
Garnish with chopped almonds and cashews. I also used pistachio flakes.
Banana Custard is ready to serve.
