- Ripe Banana -2
- Milk (whole milk or formula milk) – 1 ¼ cup
- Vanilla Custard Powder -1 tablespoon heaped
- Sugar -2 tablespoon
- Chocolate -2 small bars (optional)
- Peel the bananas and slice them in round shapes.
- Mix custard powder in a little warm milk and keep it aside.
- Pour the rest of the milk in a pan and bring it to boil.
- Add sugar to the milk and mix well. Let it simmer and then pour the dissolved custard powder mixed into the heated milk, stirring continuously.
- Make sure there are no lumps. Keep stirring until the mixture becomes slightly thick. It will thicken further when it cools down.
- Allow it cool and refrigerate for some time.
- To prepare chocolate sauce first melt the chocolate bars in a double boiler. Add a little milk (1-2 tablespoon) to it and boil for some more time. Keep it aside. (Double boiling is melting chocolate using heat from boiling water and not on direct heat)
SERVING THE CUSTARD
- Put the sliced banana pieces in a bowl. Pour cold custard over it and top it with hot or cold chocolate sauce and enjoy.
- You can also garnish the custard with nuts, once your baby has been introduced to them.
- For this recipe you can replace banana with any other seasonal fruit that your baby may prefer. The procedure remains the same.
