Durian Ice Cream (榴莲冰淇淋)



I know that this is not the right time to issue the post as durian is very expensive..and 6 small pieces of durian cost me S$15.  I purposely bought these few pieces and beg the seller to give me a durian crust for this photo taking session…


But I am preparing this based on the durian puree that have sat in my fridge for at least 2 months that I have to get rid of it.. Previously, I used this puree  to prepare durian cream puff and have about 2 cups left..


Don’t worry, durian can keep in the freezer rather well.. It will not be spoilt that easily.. Durian, if properly deep freeze and defrost, it tastes like ice cream.. It is cold, sweet and creamy.. That is the rationale of designing this recipe…


This is a simple no fuss recipe.. with only 3 ingredients and 2 steps, its taste is awesome. Pardon me for not being humble to give a self praised..


I have a few ice cream recipes, and since most households do not have ice cream making machine, steps were simplified such that no ice cream machines were required. Unlike my other ice cream recipes, i have changed the step a bit to make it a lighter ice cream which is easy to scoop out ….


Since this is the mango season, if you are interested to make mango ice cream, you can refer to this post: Mango Is In Season, So Let’s Start Making…–Mango Ice Cream (芒果冰淇淋)



Servings: Prepare about 1 litre of ice cream


  • 2 cups of durian puree
  • 1 cup of condensed milk
  • 1 cup of heavy cream or double cream or thicken cream

** Since I have used cups, i will not convert it to grams. Use any container or even rice cooking measuring cups. As long as the ratio is correct, it will be okay.. It can be glasses, cup, bowl or etc..

  • In a mixing bowl, beat the cream until stiff peak. Set aside for later use. Stiff peak means when you inverted the mixing bowl, the cream will not fall down.

  • In the same mixing bowl, beat the durian puree and condensed milk until well combined. Fold in the whipped cream lightly and swiftly until well mixed. Transfer to your desired container. Keep in freezer for at least 5 hours or preferably overnight.



Another simple recipe that have nothing to shout about. With the incorporation of whipped cream, the ice cream is fluffier. Don’t worry about the 1 cup of condensed milk, it will definitely less sweet than the commercial version.. The colour of the ice cream will depend on the durian that you used. While now may not be the durian season, you can still get reasonably priced package durian puree at Geylang fruit stalls. If I don’t remember wrongly, one  package of 1 kg deep freeze durian puree cost only about 20 SGD.  


Hope you like the post today. Cheers and have a nice day.

  1. Hi Guai Shu Shu.. Can I make this recipe with an over whipped double cream? I don’t want it to go to waste if possible. .. Also can I change the durian puree to other things maybe like mango puree or banana puree? Thanks!

  2. Hi. May I know if I can use non dairy whipping cream? What brand of dairy cream do you use? I have trouble to beat dairy cream to stiff peak. Thanks in advance.
