Happy Friday everyone!! Before the summer comes to an end, I am trying to enjoy all my favorite summer fruits, especially cherries, watermelon and peaches. This cherry custard is a must, I just love the flavor and you’ll be surprised how easy it is to make.

I used raw sugar as my sweetener, but Stevia or Splenda would work fine too. By the way, if you haven’t read the Skinny on Sweeteners yet, I highly recommend it – a very informative article on  a very confusing topic written by Heather K Jones, RD.

And speaking of pitted cherries, I am loving my new cherry pitter, from Amazon, it makes pitting cherries a breeze!

  1. I made this tonight and it was so good!  Already had it mixed up and realized I was out of vanilla, so I substituted rum extract and that worked well, too!

  2. You can sub equal amounts of Splenda Brown Sugar to Raw Sugar. Same goes for regular brown sugar.

  3. Wonderful recipe! I was looking for a lower calorie custard dessert that did not compromise on taste, and this came out splendid! I didn’t have cherries so I used figs and it came out beautiful. Thank you very much

    These look great! Do you think the same technique would work with scallops? My husband is allergic to shrimp so I'd love an option we can both enjoy!
