Soursop Custard Block

August Holidays – Part 4

Hi Everyone,

This is part 4 of the 5-part series on Tastes Like Home August Holidays. This week we’re going old school. This custard block is simple and simply d.e.l.i.c.i.o.u.s.

Soursop and condensed milk – it does not matter how you combine and consume this combination, you will always find yourself in trouble, by overeating. Whether you mix the two and eat from a bowl with a spoon or blend them together as a thick shake or pour the mixture into ice trays and freeze, it is the sweet life.

Traditional custard blocks are made with milk and sugar and flavoured with spices. Sometimes, depending on the recipe used, custard powder is added to the mixture. It is one of those ice treats that takes us back to small days. While flutee (sweet frozen ice blocks) was popular, it was the creamy custard blocks that were prized. If you did not race to the flutee lady or man when the bell rang at mid-morning signaling break time, you would be out of luck and sorely disappointed…..
