Mandarin oranges are an overlooked citrus fruit when it comes to desserts. We're not sure why! This easy mandarin orange custard recipe is quick, creamy and full of citrus flavor. Delish.

You could pour the custard into a baked tart shell if you'd prefer that. You really can't go wrong. This creamy mandarin custard will keep in the refrigerator for about three to four days. If you can't find fresh mandarins, you could substitute tangerines.
