Buah Nona Drinks You Can Make At Home

This quilted fruit's creamy texture and succulent taste make it a moreish substitute for avocado!

Buah nona is a tropical fruit well-loved by Malaysians. It’s also known as ‘custard apple’, ‘sugar apple’ and ‘sweetsop’. The fruit has a sweet aroma and taste, coupled with  smooth, creamy-textured flesh – think avocado, but white! This is probably how it got its custard connection, and given its relatively short shelf life, you can turn the fruit into these two hassle-free desserts before it goes bad.
