Fruity Custard #FoodieExtravaganza


This Fruity Custard is pure vegetarian, healthy, filled with fiber. When this months event - Hosted by Wendy Klik , who choose the theme fiber filled, heart healthy recipes for Foodie Extravaganza {Party}, was very happy since I,  had just prepared this sweet dish for my hubby who very rarely eats a full fruit and refuses to eat a banana . He will eat a slice of any fruit .. that's it.  Give it to him in this form and he will eat a bowl full of fruits.  To make him eat fruits, have devise different ways.. since he has a sweet tooth, I try to make sweet dish with fruits and some time add  nuts too.




Most fruits and vegetables are high in fiber, so it's  good  to include them in your daily diet. Here for this recipe,  have not peeled the  apples, and pears since peeling can reduce the amount of fiber in fruits and vegetables, so one should eat the peel of such fruits . According to nutritionist fiber supplements won't provide the same vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients offered by fiber foods.  Thank you Wendy for choosing this theme. Let's go to the recipe...


Ingredients 

For custard
500 Ml Milk - I used full fat milk can use low fat too
4 Tablespoons Heaped Sugar
2 Tablespoons Heaped Vanilla Custard Powder
Chocolate Sauce as required  
Banana -   sliced 
1 Apple - cubed
2 Kiwis - cubed
1 Pear - cubed
1 Cup Cubed Musk Melon 
1 Cup Pomegranate seeds
1/2 Cup Tinned Cherries
1/2 Cup Cubed Papaya
100 Grams Sweet Biscuits  - broken into pieces

Method
Mix in  vanilla custard 2 tablespoons water or cold milk ( I used milk ) till it dissolves.
Heat milk, add sugar and bring it to a boil, keep stirring in between so that is does not burn at the bottom. When it comes to a boil,  add the custard powder mixed in cold milk, stirring continuously ,  cook till sightly thick and creamy (it should be ribbon consistency).  Take off flame and whisk it well to make smooth and silky. Keep aside to cool.



Arrange the biscuits in the base of a serving dish,( have used different sweet biscuits ) sprinkle 2 tablespoons of  tinned fruit syrup, on the biscuits.

Arrange the bananas slices and add the fruits.  

Drizzle  little chocolate sauce.

Pour the cold custard drizzle with chocolate sauce. Then take a fork or tooth pick and swirl it to give a marble look.  Serve chilled... enjoy this healthy and fiber filled dessert.
