Baby Food (Vanilla Custard)

Most store-bought custards are largely made up of water, sugar, colours and other additives. This recipe, unlike many other custard recipes, is sugar-free and uses only egg yolk, making it suitable for babies from 6 months onwards.

1 organic pear, peeled, cored and quartered
1/2 MC water
250g milk
2 egg yolks
1 tablespoon cornflour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste

  1. Place the pear and water into the TM bowl and cook for 8 minutes/100 degrees/speed 2.
  2. Puree for 5 seconds/speed 8.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and cook for 7 minutes/90 degrees/speed 4.
  4. Transfer to a serving bowl, cool and serve.

Makes 2-3 serves

Tips and Tricks
Use fresh organic apple, nectarine, peach or apricot in place of the pear.
