There is nothing I love more than fresh berries. It seems we wait all winter long for the first crop of good berries to hit the stores. As soon as they do, I stock up! It’s a true joy watching my kids reach for a handful of fresh raspberries over a handful of chips or crackers. I’m sure I’m not alone here, right?
Sometimes you just want a little extra sumpin sumpin to have with your berries and this quick low sugar and low fat custard is the perfect accompaniment.
You may recall that I am an ambassador for Truvia® Brand products and have been using the Baking Blend in place of regular sugar in all of my baked concoctions lately. The beauty of this product is that it’s 75% less sugar, so there’s still a little sugar in there, but tastes as though it’s all sugar. I love using it in cookies, cakes and even this custard. It also makes a really great margarita mixer….that recipe is coming next month. 🙂
This recipe can be modified easily to suite your tastes. Instead of vanilla, you could add in bourbon or even some sweet marsala. Think creme anglaise – it’s not a stiff custard, more of a spoonable custard. This would also be a great addition to a quick Tiramisu! The possibilities are endless….or just eat it as is! Either way….YUM!
My husband and I had these custard cups for breakfast and it was a welcome change to the usual plain yogurt and fruit. They would also make a light and refreshing dessert as well. Top with a sprig of mint and it will be springtime in a bowl!
