Banana custard is a delicious eggless dessert made with bananas, milk, and custard powder. I always have bananas in stock, so I tried this easiest dessert when my little one wanted some quick dessert:) She loved it! I bet your kids will love this, even banana haters! This banana custard can be given to babies after one year. Do check out my fruits custard recipe too.
- Banana - 1 large
- Milk - 1.25 cups
- Custard powder - 1 tbsp
- Jaggery/honey/brown sugar- 2 tbsp
- Nuts Powder - 1 tbsp (optional)
- Chopped nuts - 1 tbsp
- In a small bowl, take custard powder along with sugar. Add ¼ cup of milk to it and mix well with a whisk. Make sure there are no lumps. Set aside.
- Chop bananas into small pieces and grind them to a paste. Set aside. Reserve some banana pieces to add in the final custard if desired.
- Heat the milk in a pan until rolling boil. Simmer it for 5 minutes and add custard powder mix little by little. Mix well.
- Lower the flame and boil the mixture until it thickens, and creamy consistency is reached. Give a stir occasionally. Sprinkle nuts powder once done. Mix well. Switch off the flame and cool it down. Once the custard milk mix is cooled down, add the banana puree. Mix well.
- Refrigerate the custard mixture for 15-20 minutes and serve.

- Banana Custard gets thicken after cooled down and refrigeration, so switch off the flame accordingly.
- Skip honey or sugar if the natural sweetness of bananas is enough.
- Avoid whole nuts for small babies, instead use dry fruits powder or almond powder.
- If the custard gets thicken, adjust with milk.
- Make sure to introduce each ingredient separate to your baby before you try this banana custard recipe.
- Always check with your pediatrician before introducing any new food.
- You could try this recipe with a tbsp of cornflour and 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract if you couldn’t source custard powder.
