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?

  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...

  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.
