What You’ll Need
Heavy whipping cream – This adds a rich, creamy flavor, but it also thins out the sweetened condensed milk and helps the ice cream to freeze sufficiently to form into rolls.
Sweetened condensed milk – This adds sweetness while also preventing the ice cream from freezing solid – it gives it pliability if you will. Decrease the amount of sweetened condensed milk if your ice cream does not freeze hard enough to roll and instead flips and melts as you try to roll it.
Vanilla Extract- Pure vanilla extract is wonderful for flavor; you can add different extracts or essential oils to modify the ice cream flavor.
Sea salt- A little salt helps amplify the ice cream flavors but can be eliminated.
Fresh Strawberries- We blended fresh strawberries for this recipe, but you can also use frozen berries or freeze-dried strawberries.
Mint Chocolate Chip – Add up to 1 teaspoon mint essence. Sprinkle the micro chocolate chips on top of the ice cream after it’s on the baking sheet and gently fold them in.
Cookies and Cream: Add a few crumbled oreo cookies to the food processor or stir them in after the ice cream is spread onto the baking sheet. Some people like to add a drizzle of caramel or chocolate syrup for extra taste.
Cookie dough: Fold in the chunks before freezing.
Candies: Chop candy, such as Snickers, Reeses, or Almond Joys, and sprinkle over the ice cream before freezing.
Toppings: When ready to serve, top with whipped cream, sprinkles, cherries, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, almonds, or other crushed candies.
Making Rolled Ice Cream At Home
Before You Begin: Before beginning to create the ice cream, place a rimmed sheet pan in the freezer for at least 15 minutes to level it.
Step 1: In a food processor, pulse the strawberries until smooth.
Step 2: Combine the heavy cream, condensed milk, vanilla extracts, and salt in a mixing bowl. Add strawberry pieces to the mixture or place the cream mixture in a food processor with the cut strawberries and blend until smooth. Process everything together for a more homogeneous strawberry ice cream.
Step 3: Pour the ice cream mixture into the previously frozen pan. Spread the layer with a spatula until it is very thin. Freeze for at least two hours, or until fully solid. The combination could be ready in 20-30 minutes if your freezer is cold enough!
Step 4: Lift the ice cream at the edge of the pan using a wide metal spatula (mine is approximately 4′′ wide) and glide across to make the rolls.
Step 5: To serve, place the rolls in an ice cream bowl or cup. Lift and put the rolls into the cups with tongs, chopsticks, or a spatula.
Step 6: Finish with any toppings you desire.
How To Make Perfect Rolled Ice Cream
