Bananas are loaded with essential vitamins and minerals that contribute to the proper functioning of the body and keeping you healthy. They are high in potassium and provide the daily fiber that our bodies need. 

Bananas are also a kitchen must-have that can be incorporated into various recipes such as smoothies or cakes. It is super quick and easy to throw in a banana or two into any type of recipe. I obtained this banana custard recipe from my mother who always used to make it during the summer months. I remember eating multiple bowls of it a day because of how extremely delicious it was and how it kept me cool under the sweltering sun. Now that summer is around again, banana custard is needed! Everyone loves bananas, so here's a quick and easy recipe that includes bananas and will keep you cool during the summer.

  • Step 1

    Bring four cups of milk to a boil in a large nonstick pot. Continuously stir the milk so that it does not begin sticking to the pot at any point.

    You will need to make the mixture next. Take 4 teaspoons of the vanilla flavored custard powder and pour it into a small bowl. Mix the custard powder in with half a cup of milk and four tablespoons of sugar. Thoroughly mix these ingredients together in the small bowl.

  • Step 3

    Slowly pour the mixture from the small bowl into the large pan containing the boiled milk. As you are slowly pouring the mixture into the pan, continuously stir all of the contents together. Once the custard has properly boiled, you may turn off the stove and let it sit there for about 10 minutes.

    Once the custard has cooled down a bit, you may transfer it into a serving bowl and put it in the freezer. After 15-20 minutes or when it has become cool enough, chop up 2-3 bananas into the custard. Stir the custard and bananas all together until you notice it becomes a bit fluffy.
