Homemade Creamy Custard | Slimming World Friendly Recipe

    This Slimming World friendly easy creamy homemade custard recipe is a cheeky treat for the whole family. It’s so delicious, low in Syns and it takes less than 15 minutes to make. This unofficial recipe is perfect for any one following Slimming World, Weight Watchers or a calorie controlled diet.

    One of the benefits of making homemade custard is that you can control exactly what goes into it. This recipe is much lower in sugar than most supermarket bought custard and of course low in Syns too. 

    I have been making this custard for years and for some strange reason I thought it was already on here. After searching I quickly realised it wasn’t! Once I got over the shock I decided it was time to share it with everyone. It makes the perfect creamy custard for trifles, over crumble, served with banana, cold or hot! 

    Why is this homemade creamy custard the best recipe?

    • Delicious
    • Creamy

    • Quick and easy to make

    Is this custard suitable for storing and reheating?

    Yes absolutely! Keep in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the fridge. Reheat on the hob or in the microwave. 

    Sadly this is not suitable for freezing.
