Tips for busy cooks

Custard – you can use any flavour of custard that you prefer. I used vanilla as I had leftover custard in my fridge.

Banana – if you want a different flavour, you could use a different type of fruit like pineapple or blueberries. Use fresh or frozen fruit.

Moulds – if you don’t have any ice pop moulds, you can make one big batch of frozen custard instead. Pour the blended custard mixture into a shallow, freezer-friendly container and freeze. Put scoops of the frozen custard in a bowl and drizzle with melted chocolate before serving.

Serving suggestions:

  1. Icy dessert – great as a cold dessert during summer.
  2. Tasty snack – ideal as a refreshing treat any time of the day.
