If we arrive on Maui at a decent time, we usually pick up lunch at Da Kitchen, head over to visit our relatives at Hamai Appliance and. . . . . .get some guri guri. In college, one of our aunties would visit from Maui and she’d always have a freeze packed guri guri carton for the Maui Boys (thanks Aunty Flo!).
Well, that’s a little harder to do on the mainland but. . . . I think my brother has figured out a decent replacement recipe. The original recipe is a closely guarded family secret that’s now in the fourth generation of serving guri guri to the masses.
In all honesty, if you’ve never had the ‘original,’ you need to try it – nothing will ever replace it and we at Mainland Kama’ainas love and support the store – I can personally say I probably have spent enough there to keep the store open for months on end. However, if you are getting “Big Rock Fever” and need a quick island fix like my kids and I do, this is simply a recipe for the strawberry guri guri that comes extremely close to the original, and holds us over until we get back to Maui. Without further adieu~
- Two Cans Strawberry Fanta Soda
- One Can Condensed Milk
- About 4 ounces of Whipping Cream
- Ice Cream Maker
Directions: Combine everything in the ice cream maker and well. . . . . wait until it’s done! It’s tough to keep the consistency of real guri guri so once it’s stuck in the freezer, I usually let it thaw for a few minutes before eating. Anyway enjoy and look for more recipes coming shortly!
