When my girl was first introduced to semi-solid food, avocado is one of the fruit she consumed regularly. Now at 33 months she has completely stopped eating mushy smooth puree with cereal for breakfast. So what's for breakfast nowadays? Choices are bread with jam, pancakes, hardboiled eggs, chee cheong fun, steamed buns, carrot cakes, egg tarts, fruits etc etc etc :) I guess if now I give her plain mashed avocado she will definitely spit out! She does that when I've made some salad with avocado >.< Left with 1 ripen avocado in fridge and thinking what to do with it! Tadah! Again I was looking for inspiration on web and found this interesting milk pudding!
Smooth and custardy pudding with subtle avocado taste! Both the kiddo managed to finish the small ramekins of this pudding for their breakfast! And the big ramekin?? wiped out by Papa! hahahaha...
Recipe adapted from Xin Shi Pu
- 1 ripen avocado, mashed
- 500gm fresh milk
- 4 eggs
- 70gm sugar
- Combine milk, eggs & sugar and beat till sugar is well dissolved.
- Stir in mashed avocado.
- Strain 3-4 time till mixture is smooth and free of lumps.
- Pour mixture into ramekins and steam bake in preheated oven at 160 deg cel for 50-60 mins, depending on the size of the ramekins, i.e. small ramekins cook through faster whereas large one will take a longer time. Remove from oven and cool completely. Best serve chilled.
