Banana vanilla custard with custard powder

A creamy banana vanilla custard with custard powder is my go to soothing dessert. I love this so much that I sometimes eat it for breakfast too. A little secret to let you in on, to make it breakfast’y I add some powdered oats and let it sit in the fridge overnight. Next morning, breakfast’s ready! Would you do that, I just love this luscious banana vanilla custard with custard powder.
Use fully ripe bananas to make banana vanilla custard with custard powder. It does make a lot of difference, all the sweetness just mixes well and custard tastes really good. To add to the richness I generally add some cashews and raisins, makes it even richer and luxurious.

You can make the custard yourself from scratch, someday I will post the recipe. Or you can use store-bought vanilla powder like in this recipe. This recipe gives you the steps to make a lump free custard. One more secret, keep stirring the custard while it’s cooling to prevent a skin forming on the surface.
Also try fruits and cream, baalehannu rasayana from FOI! Add vanilla ice cream to take it over the top, you know just to indulge a bit!
