Summer Frappè - try a durian smoothie
Durian can be found in more and more places in Hawaii. We went to the Maunakea Marketplace in Chinatown in search of a cool drink. The stall I was looking for was gone, so we wandered around and eventually stopped in at the Summer Frappè, which is located outside the food court, facing the inner open courtyard.
On the menu was a durian smoothie or shake, which of course I couldn't resist trying. It had a good durian flavor, reminiscent of the fruit which we love.
In the refrigerated glass counter are fresh fruits, mango, papaya, durian, pineapple, and others -- but some drinks are made with syrups. They will also make fresh fruit drinks. Check the menu.
If you like your durian drink, save up and buy a durian of your own at the KCC Farmers' Market one Saturday.
