Custard is a traditional kiwi dessert. But add some fruit to left-over custard and you've got a breakfast that will have the kids ready to power through the day. Make extra custard the night before and save some for breakfast.
Custard and fruit for breakfast:
Serve custard warm or cold. If serving warm, reheat for a couple of minutes in the microwave.
Add left-over custard to your favourite fresh or canned fruit.
To make custard for 4 people:
Mix ¼ cup low-fat milk with 2 tablespoons custard powder and 2 teaspoons brown sugar. Stir until forms a smooth paste.
Pour 1 ¾ cups of low-fat milk into a saucepan. Bring to the boil. Stir often so it doesn't burn.
When the milk is boiling, take off heat and pour in the custard paste. Stir well.
Serve custard warm or cold.
Canned or frozen fruit is just as good for you as fresh (and sometimes cheaper) - look out for specials at the supermarket.
