Ooh yes, I remember mint custard! I think it was slightly green-coloured, so I think you might need to add a little bit of green food colouring and some mint flavouring to 'normal' custard.

it was always served with chocolate cornflake cake at my school, may have to make some now!!!!

and you need to serve your mashed potato out with an ice cream scoop!

Make a white sauce and add peppermint essence and green food colouring.

Or if you have some fresh mint, sling some in the milk as you boil it. Leave to stand for about 15 minutes to absorb flavour, strain then use to make white sauce. Then add colouring.

Do not make with ordinary custard, tastes weird.
