durian whipped cream

The idea for this durian whipped cream came from my mom! She’s been asking me to make her a swiss roll cake, and I was experimenting with a strawberry roll cake this week, but I failed every time. On the last iteration, she asked me to combine durian and whipped cream, so she can enjoy a strawberry durian roll cake. I was like okay sure why not. I had never made a durian whipped cream before, so I just went for it. I actually loved it so much, I knew I had to post it on here.


Ingredients, Substitutions & Adjustments

  • Durian – There are definitely no substitutions for durian because of how distinct its flavor is! Use up to 8 oz of durian flesh for this whipped cream. I used about 6 oz, and I felt like the flavor was already pretty strong. But I know some people out there love a nice strong durian flavor, so use your judgment!
  • Heavy cream – The core part of this whipped cream. You can’t have whipped cream without the cream! Use any kind of heavy cream you can find.
  • Powdered sugar – Use either powdered sugar or regular sugar. I like using powdered sugar because I like to think it makes the whipped cream more fluffy, but I think either works fine.
  • Vanilla extract – Adds flavor to the whipped cream. Substitute with either 1 vanilla bean or an equal amount of vanilla paste!

Making my durian whipped cream

First combine the durian flesh and heavy cream in a blender or a bowl. Blend together using a blender or an immersion blender. Next, add the vanilla extract and powdered sugar. Whisk with a stand mixer or hand mixer until stiff peaks (~5 minutes). Serve with cake, ice cream, or any dessert you choose! Or just eat it straight up.
