A few days ago I went to Wegmans. As usual I was spending too much time in the produce section where I found dragon fruits (irradiated from Vietnam!) and thought to myself "Screw it, let's do this."
Upon returning home I realized most recipes using dragon fruit were savory or using it as a sauce. I was NOT about to go down that road. DRAGON fruit takes a backseat to no one. So the only dessert not completely outlandish was sorbet. After skimming several recipes and checking out the ingredients (ignoring the measurements) I assumed I could just wing it and make it work.
This is the result:
I'm pretty legit
The ensuing ensuing experiment (at the beginning I thought FAIL) was due to my shrugging off the the fact every recipe asked for a food processor and ice cream maker. Puhleez did the old Vietnamese have those things? NO.
1. Cut a dragon fruit in half to show off what it looks like.
2. Scoop out dragon fruit
3. Try at least 4 different kitchen utensils to mash the dragon fruit since you're too stubborn to find the food processor.
6. Put in freezer and wait....
Still a success. Dragon fruit tastes a bit like a kiwi but more flowery? Try it yourself.
Tips for next time: Buy a kitchen that is all cute for blogging and stop being so grumpy.
