Fruit Custard is one of the easiest dessert you could ever make. I usually make this dessert by using Brown & Polson Vanilla custard mix and trust me it always turns out as the best. You can also have this yummy dessert with dry fruits, jelly or caramel, but today I am making this with fresh fruits which are available in my pantry. You can also use several kinds of seasonal fruits like strawberry, cherry, papaya, mango, oranges, banana, pineapple, pomegranate and many more. Your kids will also love this and it is a nice way to include fruits in their diet.
