Fruit of one whole Durian fruit
2 Thai coconut meat
½ C coconut water
¼ C coconut oil, melted
1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp vanilla extract
3 T maple syrup or raw agave nectar”]
Directions: If durian is frozen thaw overnight or all day. Wear a padded mitt to hold with one hand and a very sharp knife to cut open the bulging pods with the opposite hand. Remove the pits and discard the spiked skin. Drain coconuts of water and reserve. Remove the meat with a spoon and peel away brown fibre. In a strong blender add liquid ingredients first, then solid items. Use plunger with lid on, blend until smooth. Freeze ice cream for 2 hours, or until just hardened. Blend in blender and serve immediately on its own or with a warm accompaniment.
Optional: Omit coconut oil, replace with ¼ C coconut water to make pudding or more coconut water to a smoothie consistency. Delicious!”
Tips: Durian fruit contains high levels of the amino acid Tryptophan…causing relaxation. Semi-frozen durian can be used in a high-powered blender to save time making ice cream and the pits can be boiled and eaten like a yam.
