Strawberries with Coffee Custard

     If you are planning to prepare a special dessert for Valentine's day, this is your recipe. As you may have noticed in my previous posts, I like to present easy and simple recipes, and this one is no exception. Our theme today is the fruit of love; strawberries. So, you will need the sweet fruit, crackers, or biscuits, milk, sugar, coffee, and some other few ingredients to make this extremely delicious dessert. In fact, it includes coffee custard. I tell you something, the taste of strawberries with the coffee custard is indescribable! Well, you may already have the ingredients on hand, so let's try the recipe together.


- 300g  Strawberries, cut or sliced
- 150g Yogurt
- 1 tbsp Lemon juice
- 1 tbsp Sugar
- 200g Crackers

- 500ml Milk
- 3 tbsp Sugar
- 3 tbsp Corn flour
- 1 tbsp Cocoa power
- 1 tbsp Strong instant coffee (or 2 if it is light)


1- In a bowl, mix strawberries, lemon juice, 1 tbsp sugar, and yogurt, toss the mixture and set aside.

2- Fill half of your serving pots, or cups, with crackers and set aside.

3- To prepare the custard, use a whisk to mix the ingredients together in a pan then cook on low heat while stirring. You will know when it's ready to use when it starts to thicken.

4- Remove from heat and directly pour the custard over the crackers until covered, you don't want your custard to firm before using it. Allow to cool for 10 min.

5- Fill your pots now with the strawberries mixture. Refrigerate for 1 or 2 hours, and it's done!
