Was looking for something that was healthy to eat..I had bananas and strawberries but I didn't want a smoothie..I started thinking about what I could make..this is what I came up with..my initial thoughts was to make a fruit quiche..had to quickly change gears and make this into a custard..is deliscious and healthy..to make this even healthier substitute coconut palm sugar for the brown sugar.. I would've if I had any on hand..plus I do think it would taste even better..very lite..!! And versatile .was also gonna put in some coconut but my hubby doesn't care for it all that much.hope you like!

How To Make
Peel bananas and put in mixing bowl..wash, hull strawberries.. Then slice and dice and add to mixing bowl..

Mix well.
Then add your spices and salt..mix well..measure your brown sugar..add to mixing bowl..mix well.
Measure your almond milk..add to mixture..mix well.. (I'm pretty sure I only used a cup..) crack your eggs into bowl...mix well making sure to break up eggs and mix thoroughly..
Pour into deep dish pie plates.dividing evenly..
Heat oven to 375°. Place custard in oven.increase to 400°. Bake for 15 min. Then reduce back down to 375° and bake for another 15 min.
While custard is cooling..melt your kisses with some butter and using a plastic bag put your chocolate mixture in bag..seal , snip a corner of bag, then drizzle in your choice of design on top of custards..( I left one w/out chocolate )..
Serve with fresh whipped cream.
