Simple Egg Custard
Custard can be a nutritious snack or dessert, especially when you make it yourself. Homemade custard is much more economical and gives you the control as to what ingredients you use, avoiding anything artificial and the amount of sugar you add.
Nutrition Note: A protein and calcium-rich snack or dessert for the whole family. For babies and younger toddlers, simply omit the sugar and stir through stewed fruit or mashed banana for added sweetness.
Tip: use the leftover egg whites to make our delicious coconut macaroons.
