Hi guys! I don’t think I ever got to tell you all about my durian experience. A few weeks ago I was with my friend and we decided to try durian. We bought it and were super excited to try it. So we ripped it open and was hit with the smell. I wasn’t fond of the smell at all. I’m still not, but I have been able to accept it a little more lately. Anyways, we each grabbed a handful and went for it. We both really disliked it. I brought it home and put it in the freezer because I didn’t want to waste it, but at the same time I didn’t want to eat it. Two or three weeks have passed now and I decided that I was finally ready to make things right with the durian. I still can’t eat it by itself. Although, that is my goal and one day it will happen. That day might not be anytime soon. No worries though, it will happen. Until I am able to fully accept durian as it is, I made this Durian Delight. It’s so thick and creamy just like a “real” milkshake. Mmmm. I love the texture of this. And you can taste the durian, but it’s not nearly as strong as it is when eaten alone. Durian and I have to ease into our relationship and if you feel the same way about it, then try this shake! And if you love durian, try this shake! Everyone needs to try it. I promise that it’s a great way to accept durian into your little family of favorite fruits.
1 cup durian, frozen
1 cup almond milk
1 drop vanilla
Blend together until thick and creamy. Serve, enjoy!
