Durian Ice Popsicles 榴莲冰棒。

I've bought this set of ice popsicle moulds quite some time ago and had totally forgotten to put them to good use until lately.   We have had some durians for dessert and I used the leftover to make this yummy frozen popsicle.  Well, enjoying durians is a much acquired taste, it's either you like it or you don't.  Some people just adore the smelly fruit while others are simply repulsed by it!  Which category are you?

Recipe for Durian Ice Popsicles


  • 250 gm durian flesh           
  • 5 Tbsp caster sugar
  • 250 ml full cream milk
  • a pinch of salt
  1. Put all the above ingredients into a blender and blend till thick and creamy.
  2. Pour the mixture into the ice popsicle moulds.
  3. Freeze till firm, preferably overnight.         


  1. Cheah, I love durian but not my family. Can I pop over to your place to enjoy this favourite dessert?

  2. Hi Cheah, I am laughing while reading this post of yours. Guess what? I have also almost forgotten that I have also bought this popsicle moulds until I see your durian ice popsicles! You remind me of my long forgotten purchase and will definitely use it to make your mouth watering version of ice popsicles! Thanks Cheah for sharing and reminding me of my 'lost and found' item, hahaha... You have a wonderful week ahead and warmest regards :)

    1. Oh, really! Will look forward to your creations using the lost and found items! You have an enjoyable week too!

  3. HI Cheah!
    I have seen both opinions about Durian fruit but I have never tasted it so I can not choose. I must say though, your popsicles look good enough to eat!

    Thank you so much for sharing...

    1. You're welcome, Louise. If you have the opportunity, you must give this a try. It could be 'Love at first bite' :)

  4. I only had durian once or twice and I LOVE it. These pops must be very delicious!

    1. Oh Angie, you must make a trip to this side of the world during the durian season to feast on the King of Fruits!

  5. Cheah, I am a durian lover and will enjoy these popsicles very much!

  6. I can take one or two ..haha. Not very Malaysian, am I? ^.^

    1. I do have some friends who dislike durians, both the smell and the taste :(

  7. this is nice, cannot let my gal see it if not will request me to make for her heeheehee

  8. Hi Cheah,

    These... I called them the ultimate tropical treats!

    Btw, I have a giveaway for 4 lucky winners at Please join in and I hope that you can be one of the winners :D


    1. I've seen the post and will try my luck at your giveaway, Zoe!

  9. Hi Cheah,
    I don't have ice popsicle moulds ... but I do love durians ... sometimes add them to pancakes or muffins.

    1. Adding durian to pancakes is yum! Have tasted them before.

  10. Any tips for removing the popsicle in one piece? i took them out of the freezer and when i pulled on the centre stick, it came out by itself, with the pop still in the mould :( I have the exact same mould that you have, got it from Kmart

  11. Sorry I forgot to put my name in my previous anonymous comment regarding the removal of the popsicles. I'm Prema :)

    1. I had a hard time removing the popsicles from the mould and as you said the stick came out with pop still intact. I dipped it in warm water and slowly pull out the popsicle. But still had some difficulty.

Puff Pastry Nian Gao ~ 酥皮年糕

Each Chinese New Year, I would get a Nian Gao, sticky rice cake as an offering for prayers as Nian Gao is a homonym for  'higher year',  which symbolises increasing prosperity and higher achievement for the coming year.  Therefore it is considered good luck to eat Nian Gao during this period.  Instead of frying the Nian Gao with batter like what I did 'here', this time I chose to just wrap it up with a piece of puff pastry and dump it into the oven, and the ultimate result,  yummy gluey Nian Gao with crispy pastry!
