Banana Custard

Banana Custard
This amazingly healthy banana custard is fantastic not only for toddlers, but for babies as well! Simple and delicious, your little ones will love it. This easy banana custard is made using just three basic ingredients and only takes a few minutes to prepare.

Ingredients

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup milk of your choice (cows milk, breast milk, formula, etc)
  • 1/2 banana, mashed

Method

Whisk the egg yolks in a small pot until smooth, then whisk in the milk until completely combined.

Heat custard on very low heat, stirring constantly.

As soon as the custard starts to thicken, remove from heat and continue stirring.

If custard isn't quite thick enough, return to heat briefly then remove again, stirring constantly. Repeat until desired thickness is reached, but do not overcook the egg or it will go lumpy.

Add in mashed banana and mix well.

Allow to cool for a minute or two before serving.




DID YOU KNOW...

  • Eggs are high in good quality proteins, which are the building blocks of the human body. They contain all the essential amino acids in all the right ratios for our bodies to easily use.
  • Bananas are a fantastic ingredient in toddler cooking, as they are a healthy way of sweetening any recipe without adding refined sugar. Mashed banana can also be used in place of butter or oil to keep cakes and muffins moist.

Hi, I seem to have a slight problem with your custard. I did everything as per instruction, however the custard refused to thicken - it took over ten minutes of constant stirring, to even gain SLIGHT thickness. I resorted to adding sugar and cornstarch for flavor and to save the 'custard' as it just did not thicken.

Hello Maryam, sorry to hear you had trouble with the banana custard! The main issue I have with making egg custard is accidentally overcooking it, which turns it too thick and clumpy... If it is not thickening at all, you will need to add in extra egg yolks, as these are what thickens it up as it heats.
