Fruit salad is a healthy dessert made with milk, sugar, fruits and flavored custard powder. The vanilla flavor of custard powder along with the flavor of fruits make this dish very flavorful and rich. This is a healthy dessert for fruit lovers. Kids love it too. When my kids were small, I used to make it often. A great way to make kids eat fruits. In this dish I have used fruits available with me. Any soft seasonal fruits can be used to make this super easy fruit salad.To prevent apples and bananas from turning brown after cutting, mix these fruits with slight lemon juice.
3 tbsp vanilla flavored custard powder
4 ½ cups milk (½ to make custard powder paste)
6 tbsp Sugar
Fruits Needed :2 Apples (peeled, cored and roughly chopped )
2 Sweet limes (peeled, deseeded and segmented )
6 Strawberries (hulled and roughly chopped)
1 Banana (peeled and roughly chopped)
Take 3 tbsp of vanilla flavored custard powder and 6 tbsp of sugar in a small bowl as shown in the picture below.
Take ½ cup of milk in a small bowl. Add 3 tbsp custard powder in it and mix well. Make a smooth custard powder paste. Keep it aside.
Boil 4 cups of milk in a heavy bottom vessel. Add 6 tbsp of sugar in this milk and mix well.Reduce the flame and slowly add custard powder paste in the milk. Stir continuously while adding paste, so that no lumps are formed. Cook on low flame until the mixture slightly thickens. Remove from the flame and allow it to cool. Transfer this mixture into a large bowl. Keep this bowl in the fridge for about 2 hrs. While serving, chop the fruits as shown in the picture below.
Transfer the chopped fruits to a large bowl.
Mix together the custard milk mixture and chopped fruits. Mix gently.
Serve chilled in a serving bowl.
