Huff and Puff

I was prepping myself for a puffy day gathering again. Instead of nice sweet custard puff with mixed fruits, my puff ended very wrongly with yoghurt instead. It wasn't an easy task making custard. I tried twice boiling it with milk but it failed. It got all burnt and solid. With the mixed fruits already prepared, I then had to mix it with yoghurt and down it into the puffs with a slit on top. This is how it looks:

For those who wish to try a fruit puff, you have a make a good custard to create a 'base' so the fruits can stand in it. Top it with sliced kiwifruit and strawberries, or raspberries. Dust the top with icing sugar and it's good to go. Well, if you don't have prawns, have shrimps instead and make the best out of it :)

Who says desserts can't be healthy?

The puff looks very good. Yogurt is definitely a healthier choice.

I would have never thought of making puffs with yoghurt. It certainly sounds like a healthier alternative! Though I suspect it wouldn't go down well with the puff connoisseurs in my household, i.e. the custard purists :P
