What is rolled ice cream?  Rolled ice cream (a.k.a. stir-fried ice cream, ice pan ice cream, and ice cream rolls) is a form of ice cream that is shaped into several rolls.  It’s a creamy liquid custard mixed and chopped with other flavors and ingredients (e.g. strawberries, candy bars, cookies, etc.) until they are fully and evenly incorporated.  This liquid mixture is spread and flattened on a frozen metal plate with a metal spatula and scraped into rolls that are typically placed vertically in a cup with assorted toppings.

Some of the most popular flavors found at most rolled ice cream stores include:

  • matcha green tea
  • cookies ‘n creme
  • strawberry
  • chocolate
  • pistachio
  • mango
  • coffee

Rolled ice cream originated in Thailand in 2009, but quickly grew in popularity throughout Asia in the early 2010’s thanks to viral videos posted throughout social media. It wasn’t until the mid-2010’s that this became a food sensation in the United States.

Special items:

  • 2 pastry scraper, or hand-held paint scrapers

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Chill your pan, or place your stone slab in the freezer for at least 1 hr and put it on a moistened cloth/paper towel to prevent slipping
  2. Pour approximately 1 cup of the liquid ice cream base on the slab and mix in all toppings
  1. Use your scraper to continuously spread the liquid evenly over the slab until it’s frozen.
  2. Use your scraper to scrape the ice cream off the slab by pressing the edge of the scraper down and away from you.
  3. Keep scraping from one side to the other until all the ice cream is rolled.
  4. Place the rolls in bowls so they sit vertically.
  5. Cover the ice cream rolls with your toppings and dig in!
