Banana bread (low sugar)
This recipe has 14 carb exchanges.
It’s always tricky to find something for dessert that isn’t loaded with sugar and carbs. This recipe for custard doesn’t have any cream which reduces the amount of carbohydrates in there. We rely on the egg to give it the thick creaminess that makes a custard a custard.
Custard (makes 1 cup)
This recipe has approx 2 carb exchanges.
1 cup low fat milk
1 tablespoon cornflour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
1 In a small saucepan, combine the milk, cornflour, egg and vanilla. Whisk together until smooth.
2 Over medium heat, whisk the ingredients continuously to prevent egg from setting too quickly.
3 When the mixture starts to bubble, turn heat down to low and keep whisking until the mixture is quite thick and no longer runny.
4 Remove from heat. Add the cinnamon if using. Add the sugar and stir until it has dissolved.
5 Serve warm.
