Fruit salad with no custard powder


Fruit salad is an ideal dessert that could be enjoyed during the blazing summer. You could even make it healthier by adding rice flour and milk instead of instant custard powder. Here is how you could prepare delicious fruit salad without custard powder.


1 apple (cut into small pieces)

1 banana (cut into small pieces)

½ cup black grapes

½ cup pomegranate seeds

2 tsp + 8 tbsp sugar

3 tbsp rice flour

1 liter + ¼ cup milk

2 tsp condensed milk (if required)

2 pinches turmeric powder

¼ tsp vanilla essence

Cherries as required


Into a bowl add the apple, banana, black grapes and pomegranate seeds

Add two teaspoons sugar and mix well

Keep this fruit bowl aside for at least 15 minutes

In a bowl mix the rice flour and ¼ cup milk

Meanwhile, boil a litre of milk in another pan

Stir the milk at intervals so that the layer of fat doesn€™t form on the surface

When the milk begins to boil, add 2 tsp condensed milk (optional) or you could add sugar for sweetness

Stir the sweetened milk for three more minutes

Add the rice flour mixture slowly and stir until the milk thickens up

Put the flame on medium while boiling the milk

The consistency of the milk shouldn€™t be too thick or too loose

Add two pinches turmeric powder for colour

Allow this milk mixture to cool down completely

After it has cooled, pour into a mixer jar with ¼ tsp vanilla essence as well

Blend at least for two minutes to achieve the right consistency

Pour this into the fruit bowl and mix

Garnish with some cherries as well

Pop the fruit salad in the fridge.


You could add any fruits of your choice. The pomegranate seeds may turn bitter if the fruit salad is kept in the fridge for long. So you could add them just before serving the fruit salad.
