Orange semolina custard

Orange semolina custard

This is a tasty treat that doesn’t contain too much sugar. It also provides your child with a good source of calcium and iron.

Makes about 1 cup.

Saucepan method.

1 cup (250ml) prepared Karicare Follow-On formula or Toddler Milk or standard milk

¼ teaspoon finely grated orange rind

1 ½ teaspoons sugar

1 egg yolk*

1 tablespoon semolina

¼ teaspoon vanilla essence (optional)

1 tablespoon fresh orange juice*

  • In a small saucepan, heat ¾ cup of the milk with sugar and grated rind, stirring often with a wooden spoon, until almost simmering. Remove from the heat.
  • Beat or whisk remaining milk with egg yolk and semolina. Stir this into hot milk (use a rubber scraper to ensure all semolina mixture goes in).
  • Return pan to heat, stirring constantly, until custard comes to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring for a few more minutes until it thickens slightly.
  • Remove from heat – it will thicken more on cooling.
  • Let stand for 5 minutes before adding (optional) vanilla. When cool add orange juice.
  • Serve cool, as is, or with fruit.

* For babies over 12 months, use 1 whole egg instead of egg yolk. Add 2 tablespoons of orange juice.
