Homemade Custard

300mL milk

2 egg yolks

2 tsp cornflour (gluten free if required)

1½ tbsp (20g) caster sugar

2 scoops AdVital Powder

2 tsp vanilla essence or extract

Using Custard Powder

Custard powder

1 scoop AdVital Powder per 150mL of custard

Using Store-Bought Custard

Store-bought custard

1 scoop AdVital Powder per 200g of custard


Homemade Custard

1Pour milk into a saucepan, bring to the boil.

2Meanwhile, combine egg yolks, cornflour and sugar in a heatproof bowl and whisk until smooth.

3Remove hot milk from heat and slowly pour the milk onto the egg yolk mixture in a steady stream, whisking constantly.

4Return mixture to saucepan, cook over low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until thickened. (Do not allow the mixture to boil.) To determine when the custard is ready, use your finger to draw a line through the custard on the back of the spoon. If the line is well-defined, the custard is ready.

5Remove from the heat and whisk in AdVital Powder and vanilla until smooth.

6Strain the custard into a jug, and serve hot.

3Pass through a sieve into a jug and serve.

Using Store-Bought Custard

1Empty the custard into a medium sized mixing bowl.

2Add 1 scoop of AdVital Powder for every 200g of custard.

3Whisk until smooth and serve.

Recipe Notes

Hints & Tips

  • Most commercial custards are bright yellow because they contain food colouring; this homemade custard is almost white.
  • Flavour with orange zest or 1-2 tablespoons of brandy, rum or liqueur.
  • Store with plastic wrap touching the surface of the custard to prevent a skin forming on top and refrigerate immediately.
  • Not suitable for freezing.
  • Serve with fruit or apple fritters (refer to Apple Fritters Recipe).

Low FODMAP Diet Tips

  • Use gluten free cornflour and lactose free milk.
  • If using custard powder or store-bought custard, choose one that is both lactose and gluten free.
