I love making this ice cream, simply because I ate too much durian already, and that I didn't want to waste my last durian.
Buy a durian from your local fruit grocer or supermarket. It is still available as they are flown frozen to Downunder, Australia. I love the Monthong type, yellow thick flesh with small seed. Highly fragrant and sweet from Bangkok. So at $4.98 per kilo, they must have flown 1st class?
With your Ninja ultimate powerful skills, you need to beat it into smithereens... or use a mixer/processor/ pulse...whatever.. but it should be creamy and smooth, no lumpy durians okay? Then you fold it with sweet condensed milk or yoghurt if you are a health freak! At this point I dropped an extra very potent potion in the mix...hahahha ...the wicked vanilla...just two drops okay, otherwise it will kill the wonderful durian taste and smell! We can't have that. Vanilla is supposed to drive men crazy...what does it have to do with this blog? Absolutely nuh duh...
And then, after you have pulverized this mixture, you need to transfer it to a container to chill it in the freezer. Why we do this, you ask? God Knows! But it taste better frozen.
Serve it cold and frozen, in a cute ice cream bowl, so all your guests will go...."OOOH.... WAHHH!!!"
Lastly, a big shout out to Coles and
Woolworths in Wagga Wagga for sourcing durians for me and Sunny Park
Queensland for the durians.
