fruit custard, fruit salad with custard

fruit custard is one of those desserts that i have grown up having along with gajar halwa, rice kheer, besan ladoo, kaju katli. 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 and polson brand or crown brand for custard and the jelly would be rex brand.

a fruit custard is basically made by mixing fruits with custard sauce. this delicious dessert is also known as fruit salad with custard. some dry fruits and nuts can also be added to this fruit custard recipe. i have also shared an eggless recipe of making custard sauce.

suggestions for making fruit custard

  1. fruit custard can be made with dairy milk as well as almond milk. i make both ways. in the stepwise pics, i have shown the method of making with dairy milk. i have mentioned the method of making with almond milk in the recipe card notes below.
  2. to improvise on the sugar content, you can add jaggery to almond milk. however with dairy milk, you have to be careful while adding jaggery as the milk can curdle. if you do plan to add jaggery, then add once the custard has become warm.
  3. you can add seasonal fruits but avoid citrus fruits and melons. both citrus fruits and melons are an incompatible combination with milk and can make the stomach upset.
  4. you can also add chopped dry fruits and nuts of your choice.

fruit custard can be served chilled or immediately.

other fruit based recipes which you can make are:

  1. banana cake
  2. trifle pudding
  3. fruit punch
  4. banana bread
  5. fruit salad

  1. HI Dassana,

    I must thank you for all your recipes. I enjoy going through your intuitive site and am amazed to see how it is extremely user friendly.
    I made Fruit Custard for a party at a friends place and it turned out to be amazing. i made 2 changes – first instead of adding the custard while the milk came to a gentle heat , i added it after a complete boil – this gave the custard a real thick density and second i added few saffron strands to this, which added a rich color and fragrance to the end product.
    All your recipes have been amazing . Heartfelt thank you and keep up the good work.
