Heat milk and sugar in a sauce pan and bring it to a boil.

Add in custard mix and keep cooking till it gets thick.

Add in vanilla and mix well. Pour this into a bowl and cover with a plastic wrap, make sure the wrap touches the top of the custard so when it cools no crust forms on top. Chill this till use.
