Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 300 mL milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tsp cornflour , gluten free if required
  • 1 1/2 tbsp castor sugar, 20 g
  • 2 scoops AdVital Powder, 50 g
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence or extract

Instructions
 

Directions

    Homemade Custard

    • Pour the milk into a saucepan and bring it to the boil.
    • While the milk boils, combine the egg yolks, cornflour, and sugar in a heatproof bowl and whisk them together until the resulting mixture is smooth.
    • Remove the hot milk from the heat, and slowly pour it onto the mixture in a steady stream, whisking constantly.
    • Return the mixture to saucepan and cook it over low heat. Stir it constantly with a wooden spoon until it thickens (don’t allow the mixture to boil). To see if the custard is ready, use your finger to draw a line through the custard on the back of the spoon. If the line is well-defined, the custard is ready.
    • Remove the custard from the heat and whisk in AdVital Powder and vanilla.
    • Strain the custard into a jug and serve it hot.

    Custard Powder

    • Prepare the custard according to the directions on the pack.
    • When the custard has cooked, remove it from the heat and whisk in 2 scoops of AdVital Powder per 150mL until the custard is smooth.
    • Pass it through a sieve into a jug and serve it.

    Store-bought Custard

    • Empty the custard into a medium-sized mixing bowl.
    • Add 2 scoops of AdVital Powder for every 200g of custard.
    • Whisk the custard until it is smooth and serve it.

    Notes

    Hints and Tips:
    • Most commercial custards are bright yellow because they contain food colouring; this homemade custard is almost white. Flavour it with orange zest or 1–2 tablespoons of brandy, rum or liqueur.
    • Store the custard with plastic wrap touching the surface of the custard to prevent a skin forming and refrigerate immediately.
    • This recipe is not suitable for freezing.
    • Serve the custard with fruit or apple fritters.
    Low FODMAP Diet Tips:
    • Use gluten free cornflour and lactose free milk.
    • If you’re using custard powder or store-bought custard, choose one that is both lactose and gluten free.
    • If a low FODMAP diet is being followed, use the Monash University FODMAP Diet App to find suitable low FODMAP ingredient alternatives.
