This simple Thermomix Chocolate Banana Custard is made from scratch, without the colours and flavours that custard powder contains.
Bananas and maple syrup are used to sweeten, making it healthier than the sugar-ladened versions too.
We all know that custard is something that thermal cookers do well. This version gets some fruit into the kids and like all of my recipes, caters for a wide range of dietary needs. It’s free from gluten and nuts and you can use your choice of milk, making it dairy free as well if need be.
You’ll need only a few ingredients in order to whip up this sweet treat. They are:
40g tapioca starch or cornflour
10g cacao powder
pinch of salt
Like most Thermomix custard recipes, this chocolate banana custard has just one single Step.
Throw it all in and cook 7 minutes/90/speed 4/MC on.

Yes. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days.
Yes, this recipe can be halved. Cook it for 6 minutes. If it’s not ready then cook for the remaining minute.
Doubling will be fine if you need a lot of custard! You will need to cook a little longer – 9 minutes should be sufficient.
For sure! You can use whatever milk you normally use – soy, nut milks. Try my Cashew Coconut Milk!
You can make this vegan by using a plant-based milk and leaving out the eggs. Increase the starch by an extra 20-40g, 40g making a very thick custard.
Yes, you sure can. Leave out the cacao powder for a plain banana custard.
It is a fairly thick custard, yes. However, it’s not that almost sliceable thickness that Thermomix custard can sometimes be. Instead, the banana keeps it very creamy, even when cold straight from the fridge.
