How to make rolled ice cream at home

how to make rolled ice cream


What is rolled ice cream? It is a vanilla ice cream base that is chopped with fresh ingredients to flavor it, quick frozen on a cold surface, spread out flat and then rolled up and served. The quick freeze and agitation while it chills makes for tiny ice crystals so that the rolled ice cream has a very smooth mouth feel. Mixing the ingredients in fresh means you can customize each serve to suit the taste of the lucky person who is going to be indulging. The idea appears to have started in Thialand and has quickly spread across the world. There is even a rolled ice cream place near me, but they all use big expensive compressors to instantly freeze the ice cream. After many experiments I finally discovered how you can make ice cream rolls at home.

To make rolled ice cream at home you will need:

Grab all the things listed then watch the video above to see how to make rolled ice cream at home.

1. Flavours for family or friends to choose from.
Things like fresh fruit, chocolate bars, oreos and nutella work well.

2. Vanilla Ice Cream Base
400mL (13.53 fluid ounces) or 1 1/2 cups (4%) milk
90g (3.17 ounces) or 6 egg yolks
1 vanilla bean or vanilla essence
216g (7.62 ounces) or 1 cup sugar (caster or super fine)
200mL (6.76 fluid ounces) or 3/4 cup cream

see the video below for details of how to make the vanilla ice-cream base. Chill it in the fridge until you are ready to make your rolls.

3. Equipment
2 baking trays the same size with sides
2 stainless steel scrapers
a towel

4. Dry ice pellets.
If you’re in Australia look for a BOC gas near you and remember to take an esky with you to put it in.
While you’ve got dry ice at home you might as well have some fun experimenting…

  1. Hi Ann
    I would like to know where I would get dry ice from for e.g baking stores?

    • Ann

      hi Wendy in Australia BOC gasses sells it by the kilo – take an esky to put it in.

  2. How many rolls does this usually make?

    • Ann

      Good question, I only made one lot of ice-cream base for all the rolls in the video and I had some leftover.

  3. This was a most fun video! Love those handsome young men and I love that they are getting experience following in Mom’s footsteps! What a great experience.

  4. Please tell me any substitute for eggs that you have used for making ice-creams

    • Ann

      Hi Harini, eggs are an emulsifier so they keep the liquid and fat together helping make it creamy. Commercial ice-creams often use an emulsifier additive instead but they can be hard to get hold of. You could just try without eggs but it might be a bit icy.
