Custard Apple Ice Cream: Easy Custard Apple Ice Cream, How to make Custard Apple Ice Cream

Custard Apple or Sitaphal (as it is known in Hindi) is a seasonal fruit which one gets easily in India. I remember my days in Pune, where we used to get fresh, large Sitaphals and I often used to make a milk shake of these creamy fruit or Custard apple cream. Its a very delicious, filling and healthy fruit.

It is a no cook, easy custard apple ice cream. Its tastes good and will definitely calm all those ice creamy urges…… When you know that in your fridge there is a bowl of wonderful creamy custard apple ice cream waiting for you.

I have adapted this recipe from Kaushi Bhatia’s cookbook – Dollops Icecreams and Dessert. And do you know….  what is the thickening agent used in this icecream recipe. Its Marie Biscuits…… Surprised….. Yes it is Marie Biscuits. I made this ice cream with whole milk, but you can use skimmed milk.

You can see the ice cream melting…… No….. Melted…….when I was taking the pictures.

Units

Ingredients

  • 1 cup custard apple pulp
  • 1 cup fresh milk, boiled and cooled
  • 1 cup crushed marie biscuits
  • 6 tablespoon sugar

Instructions

Collecting Custard Apple Pulp

  • Wash the custard apples in water. Dry them with a cloth. Now open it up and peel the fleshy pulp from the seeds. This will take some time as you will have to peel the flesh from each and every seed. 
  • Collect the pulp in a container. Around 3-4 custard apples will give you 1 cup of pulp. This is the only time consuming part. After this everything is quick and easy.

Making Custard Apple Ice Cream

  • Take the fresh milk in your mixer jar or bowl if your are using a hand mixer or blender. Now add the crushed marie biscuits
  • Add the custard apple pulp and the sugar.
  • Blend all the ingredients till everything is nicely mixed. Check the sugar. If less, than add a few more tablespoons of sugar.
  • The ice cream mixture is thick and creamy….and………. Looks like an ice cream mixture pour the contents into container with a tight fitting lid.
  • Place it in the freezer till partially set. 
  • For a softer texture, remove from freezer and whip the mixture in your mixer for 1/2 minute. Pour into the container again and refreeze the ice cream. If you are a lazy person like me, you don’t have to whip it I did not and still the custard apple ice cream tasted great.
  • Serve the custard apple ice cream as it is…… that is plain… or if you want you can top it up with a topping or sauce of your choice.
