Fruit Custard

You need: 3 tbsp custard powder* (cornflour); 1 -2 cups peeled and diced fruit that you like; 500 ml (2 cups) milk; 4 tbsp sugar or equivalent sugar substitute.

How to: Put the fruit in a big bowl.

Put the custard powder in a small bowl with a little cold milk (1/4 cup) and mix it into a smooth paste. Add the sugar to the rest of the milk and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium. Take it off the heat and stir in the custard powder paste. Mix well, making sure there are no lumps. Return to the heat and cook for 2-5 minutes, until it thickens a bit.

Let it cool a little (you could also prepare the fruit in this time) and pour over the fruit. Stir well, but gently. Eat chilled.

Fruit suggestions: I used bananas, peeled oranges, strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries, and grapes. Apples and pears also go well in this. I found the raspberries gave the custard a very tart taste, so I probably won’t do that again.
