Cooking Tips

Use ripe jackfruits with a fragrant aroma and soft texture for the best results. To achieve a smooth, creamy consistency, blend the bread slices with a small amount of milk before adding them. Remember to whisk the ice cream mixture every 30 minutes while it’s freezing to prevent ice crystals from forming and ensure a creamy texture.

This recipe yields approximately six servings and takes about 1 hour of active time and 4 hours to prepare. Once fully set, serve the Jackfruit Ice Cream in bowls or cones, garnished with sliced almonds for an extra crunch. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer for up to one week, although it’s unlikely there will be any left!
