Durian Ice Cream

I've been very crazy making ice cream recently. The reason is either the weather is too hot or I need to finish all the cream before it expired. What a good excuse! Oh yes, I'm quite naughty recently. At first, I was inspired by Small Small Baker's mango ice cream and it was fantastic! Then, I read through a recipe book of "The Perfect Scoop" which had given very details explanation of making real ice cream. I followed exactly the recipe to make a matcha ice cream and dark chocolate ice cream, it's real good!
After trying three types of ice cream, I still had some left over cream so I make this durian ice cream since now is the durian season and it's quite cheap in the market.
I followed the mango ice cream recipe from SSB but using durian. As the sweetness from the durian is very strong, I cut down some sugar to balance the flavour. This is my first time having such a super rich durian ice cream, we find ourselves like eating the real durian and it's totally different from what I bought from the supermarket. It's so flavourful till you will find the smell stay in your mouth for the whole day (no kissing on that day) kekekeke.... :) One thing good about homemade ice cream is we could have the REAL flavour of ice cream!
Recipe: 300g durian, puree 60g sugar 130g plain yogurt 200g whipping cream
Remove the seeds from the durian meat, I know you're going to lick your finger but please do it after you remove all ok :) Place the durian meat and sugar in a food processor to make them in puree. Transfer the durian meat to a large bowl and mix into the yogurt. Whip the cream in another bowl until stiff and fold it into the durian mixture. The recipe from SSB noted that the mixture could be store in the freezer without process it in an ice cream maker. However, I still process it in the ice cream maker to have a better texture. The result was very creamy! Either you put it directly into an ice cream container or process in an ice cream maker, it has to be chilled in the freezer for 5 hours or overnight. Enjoy and no kissing.... kekeke...

Oh wow Grace! No wonder you had been so busy lately! Making ice-creams one after another! Time to catch up on the weight lost during your illness? Good. You need that extra weights. :) Nevermind lah, since both of you also eat the durian ice-creams, you probably taste the durians during kissing, no problem lah! ;) Hahaha...

It's looks delicious! Can I have some?

Happy Homebaker said...

Hi Grace, I have tried SSB's mango ice cream it's really good! I have also intended to make a durian version too!

Hey there! I heard of the unusually hot weather back home. I wonder if our region is suffering from heatwave!? Anyhow, it's durian season now? Wow, I'm so jealous ... Haven't touched durians for several years ... Miss the smell LOL! I hope I can try to make ice-creams and gelato even though I don't have an ice-cream maker. You think it'll be workable?

Great blog! I've been a silent follower of yours for a long time! Keep up the fabulous work!

Hi Jane,
Be honest with you, I've put on weight recently :( But, still hardly resist to eat those sweet sweet things. How ah?

Hi Cherry Potato,
I hope you'll like ice cream with durian flavour.

Yes please make some durian ice cream, it's very flavourful. Beside, I changed the quantity yogurt and sugar from the mango recipe because I find durian paste is slightly thicker than mango puree so I added more yogurt to balance up the consistency. You can make an experiment and tell me how's the result ok.

Hi Pei Lin
Yes, it's durian season now and everywhere is selling durian. For this recipe, you don't need an ice cream maker. The original of mango recipe did not require to process the mixture in an ice cream maker. Since I've it then just do something extra. You can try the mango recipe, it's very nice!

Hi, can snap a pic of your ice-cream maker to show me. How much did you pay and whether it is user friendly?


Small Small Baker said...

Hi Grace, I wanted to make some durian ice cream too. How nice it is to see that you have adjusted the recipe for us. I don't have to think of it myself. Hehe. I'm sure to try this. Thanks! :)

Kitchen Corner said...

Hi Jane,
Yea, I agree with you, life is short so let us enjoy! Cheers!

Hi quizzine,
Thanks! It's really tempting.

Hi Honey Bee Sweets,
Hope you will like the recipe.

Hi Bits of Taste,
I'm not sure this is the best recipe for you, I'm still looking for a better one. At the moment, this is quite a good one for me. Hope you'll like it too!

Hi Anonymous,
I'm using a KitcheAid attachment of ice cream bowl. It needs to be freeze in the freezer at least 15 hours before using it. Check out this website

Hi Small Small Baker
I'm not sure I did the perfect adjustment for the recipe. Please try it or if you find it's not right please let me know ok. Let us make it much more better yea!

Hi Lisa,
I'm glad that you like the coffee ice cream. I'll post up the dark chocolate ice cream recipe for you soon. The recipe from the book of "The Perfect Scoop". It's a good ice cream recipe book.

Hi Small Small Baker
May I know what kind of whipping cream you are using for the durian ice-cream? Is it dairy or non-dairy? Thanks.

Kitchen Corner said...

Hi Matterhorn88,
The original mango ice cream recipe use non-dairy whipping cream but I used dairy whipping cream for this durian ice cream. Cheers!

Hi Grace,

The ice-cream look so yummy. I would like to make some at home. Can I check with you the following?
1. For the durian, is 300g the weight of the durian with seed or without?
2. Is there any significant difference in the final product when processed with an ice-cream maker and without one?

Many thanks in advance ...

Hi Renee,

300 grams of durian puree means that durian without the seed. I haven't tried making it without ice cream maker so hardly tell you the different. This recipe is the same as the mango ice cream from SSB. Some of them make it without ice cream maker and they compliment is good. You could try to make your experiment and don't forget to me the result ya! Enjoy and look forward to hearing from you soon! Cheers!

znitud said...

We live in US, I made this today for my Malaysian taste and she hugged & kissed me in spite of durian or maybe because of it...great recipe and so easy, thank you!

Kitchen Corner said...

WOW! It's great that you could get durian in the US. Your wife must be a durian lover. Glad that she loves it. Cheers!

Hi, just wondering. What does the plain yoghurt do? I made strawberry ice cream with pureed strawberry, whipping cream and sugar and it's delish! So I thought maybe I could do the same with durian. If the plain yoghurt gives extra taste or creamier texture, then I'll try it.

Brig said...

I made this a couple of days ago - delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Unknown said...
