"What's so special about this ice cream?" you may ask. Well, this ice cream flavor is something that you can only find in the Philippines. I'm sure that many of you haven't heard of it! It is called langkasuy, which is short for "langka" (jackfruit) and "kasuy" (cashew). Jackfruit is a popular tropical fruit in the Philippines, which, when fully ripe, has a delightfully sweet flavor. This ice cream captures the full flavor of this tropical fruit with the added crunchy texture and nutty flavor of cashews. I tell you, their flavors complement each other so well!
  • 2 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup canned, sweetened langka (jackfruit), drained, 2 tablespoons syrup reserved
  • 1 cup roasted cashew halves
  1. In a blender, whip the heavy cream, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, langka syrup, and half of the langka and cashew until fluffy. Chill the mixture for at least 1 hour. Pour into an ice cream maker and churn. Mix for about 25-30 minutes or according to the manufacturer's directions. Add the remaining langka and cashew during the last 5 minutes of churning. Transfer to a tightly sealed container and freeze until ready to serve. (Store-bought ice cream containers will work well for this.)
