No Bake Vanilla Custard Recipe 

Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 20 mins

3-4 servings

The recipe comes to us from: A Mom's Take. Have you ever had custard? If not, there is no reason to wait any longer to try it! You’ll find it has nearly the texture and taste of pudding while instead delivering something that feels gourmet. Like this No Bake Vanilla Custard recipe. It’s so easy to whip together and tastes amazing!


  • 2 cups DairyPure whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

How to Make It

  1. Combine DairyPure milk, sugar, and cornstarch in a saucepan on the stove-top at a medium heat. Continue to whisk, making sure to scrap the bottom of the pan, so the cornstarch doesn’t burn, allowing the milk to scald.

  2. Slowly add in egg yolks while whisking. Continue to heat the mixture another 2-3 minutes, until it begins to thicken. Do not boil!

  3. Remove from heat. Add vanilla, mixing it in until combined.

  4. Pour into individual serving dishes or ramekins. Set in the fridge and allow to cool for at least 20 minutes. Garnish with fresh fruit and a sprinkle of powdered sugar, if desired, and serve.
