fruit custard, mixed fruit custard

fruit custard is one of those desserts that i have grown up having along with gajar halwa, fruit custard and jelly used to take a prime position in the desserts mom would make.

sometimes the fruit custard was served plain and sometimes with fruit jelly. i remember mom using the brown & polson brand or crown brand for custard and the jelly would be rex brand.

so here is again a veganised version of fruit custard with almond milk in this series of vegan indian desserts.

in this recipe too, the technique and method of making the custard remains the same. so you can use any milk i.e almond or diary and still get perfect results.

to improvise on the sugar content, i added jaggery to the custard. the fruits i used are seasonal fruits – strawberries, apples, papaya, banana and pomegranate.

the fruit custard can be served chilled or immediately. for lactose intolerant kids or adults & vegans, this fruit custard recipe is an awesome dessert.

overall, the result is a custard that one cannot make out whether its made in almond milk or with cow’s milk. if using cow’s milk, then do use organic cow’s milk.

Hi dassana :)

Can i try this recipe with Soy milk…??? Will it taste good???


dassana February 19, 2013 7

you can try ramya. but the custard will have the soy milk taste & flavor. if thats ok with you, then you can make it with soy milk. but i would still suggest to make the custard with almond milk as its really good both in taste as well as texture. plus also good for the health.

Hello, this looks so delicious! Where can I get eggless custard powder? Thanks! :)


dassana February 19, 2013 9

generally custard powders are eggless. but some manufacturers do add eggs in it. so when buying just check the contents of the powder or see if there is the green vegetarian sign on the packet.
