I made this a few weeks ago in anticipation of the dwindling durian season.
I love to make icecream using homemade yogurt. I am not a fan of milk based icecream, especially the commercial ones. I find them way too cloying, even the premium brand ones. I much prefer yogurt based icecream, gelato, or better still, sorbet.
This durian icecream is super easy to make. You can say it's like a durian froyo because I made it with strained yogurt. It is egg-less, cream-less and stir-less :) I won't bluff you and say it has the perfect creamy texture; no it doesn't. But it is not icy rock hard either. Something like a harder version of commercial frozen yogurt. Just leave it in room temperature for about 15min to soften slightly before serving.
Easy Homemade Durian Icrecream

- 2 tblspn cold milk
- 1 tblpn granulated sugar
1. Puree all the above and pour into a freezer proof container with a lid or wrap with clingwrap.
2. Freeze overnight. To serve, leave it in room temperature for 15min to soften slightly before scooping.
