Fruit salad with vanilla flavored custard powder recipe - how to make fruit salad

Fruit salad with vanilla flavored custard powder - This is a healthy dessert made with milk, sugar, fruits and flavored custard powder. The combination of  both the vanilla flavor and fruits flavor makes this dish very aromatic and rich. When my kids were small, I used to make it often. A great way to make them eat fruits and they love it too. In this dish I have used fruits available with me. Any soft seasonal fruits can be used to make this super easy fruit salad. It tastes absolutely delicious and an ideal dessert for fruit lovers. It is an easy dessert which can be made for any get-together and potluck party.
