This is just one way to enjoy eating it.Use custard powder of your favourite flavour.We can use dry fruits also . Kids will love this and it is a nice way to include fruits in their diet.
Custard will remain fresh for 2 -3 days in the refrigerator,but remember to remove the banana pieces from the leftover custard as they will discolur soon and will give a strong flavour.You may add any seasonal fruit of your choice chikoo,pomegranate pearls,peeled Orange segments,strawberry,raspberry, etc.Don’t use water melon. It has so much water .it will give watery flavor.
