Rolled Ice Cream DIY How to make rolled ice cream at home

August 9, 2019 100 By William Morgan


Welcome to How To Cook That I’m Ann
Reardon and today after hundreds of
requests we’re making rolled ice cream.
When you ask me for a video I always
like to check out what’s already been
done, there are a ton of videos making
them using an electric compressor that
freezes the ice cream but they’re pretty
big, bulky and expensive so I’m not going
to buy one of those. There are also lots
of youtubers trying to make them at home
and what they do is they chop up the
ingredients on a tray and then put it in
the freezer. Emi showed us that unless
your freezer is on the lowest setting
it’s not gonna work. “This is not holding
up.”
They did all get this method to work
eventually when they turned the freezer
down but there is still a big catch to
using this method. “And you want to freeze
it for a minimum of 5 hours.” The three
things I love about the rolled ice cream
that you get in Thailand is one you get
to choose the flavor two it’s ready in
minutes and 3 because it’s agitated
while it freezes you get smooth ice
cream with no big ice crystals in it.
Freezing it overnight loses all of those
things. There has to be another way. I
heard that if you put a piece of marble
in the freezer that that might work so
let’s try that. I did turn my freezer
down to the coldest setting but as you
can see it is making it cold and it’s
making it thick but it’s not freezing
it solid enough so that is a fail!
There are freezer trays that you can get
online but they don’t post to Australia
and the reviews on here are not very
complimentary. Let’s try and make our own
freezer tray anyway most ice cream bowls
have you urea in them because urea
freezes at minus 11 degrees centigrade.
You can buy a pure urea solution mixed
with pure deionized water at car shops
but I don’t want you to get that in your
food so I’ve got a metal box and a super
thick strong plastic bag and I’m just
gonna pour some of that in there and
then once you’ve got enough twist it and
fold it over itself and then put two zip
ties on it. Close that and
the extra cold freezer overnight. Now
that it is frozen I’ve turned the box
upside down so that we have the metal
side that has the frozen block right up
against it. It feels really cold like
hurt your fingers cold so let’s see if
it works.
Nope! This is just not cold enough it is
pretty hot at my house today and you can
see it is starting to freeze it but
again it’s just not cold enough to make
it into the rolled ice cream. Justine and
Jenna bought one of the ice cream trays
and they did seem to get that to work
but only for one serve of rolled ice
cream and after that it just wasn’t cold
enough anymore. Now I have three kids
so I need this to work for at least
three serves preferably five so Dave and
I can have some too so I need something
colder than that. It’s time for dry ice!
Put something down to protect the
counter from the cold add a tray to put
the dry ice in and then a thin towel
over that tray so we don’t get that
horrible noise dry ice makes when it’s
on metal. Then pour in enough dry ice
pellets to give you a good even layer in
your tray, add another metal tray over
the top. Pour in your ice cream base and
choose your flavor and chop it up … oh my
goodness look at this is freezing too
fast we’ve got the opposite problem! But
that’s fine because we know that ice
cream also melts fast so all you need to
do is just take the tray off the dry ice
and finish your chopping chop chop chop
chop chop chop! Keep going until you have
a paste like consistency. Now put it back
onto the dry ice and spread it out into
a thin layer now it’s set too hard! I can’t
roll that so again I’m just going to
take it off the cold and wait about 10
seconds and then roll it … yay it works! Oh my
goodness look at that we have rolled ice
cream for one let’s see if we can use it
again to make more for everyone else in
the family.
This time at strawberries and cream
cheese for a
strawberry cheesecake flavor. Chop it up
and then spread that out that is
freezing up nicely and then just roll it
up. If you use two scrapers then you can
use one to get underneath it kind of
lifts it off the tray and the other one
that’s sort of more upright encourages
it to roll. Yum look at that! Now two of
my kids get to have their choice of
flavor of instant rolled ice cream let’s
try another one. For this one we’ve got
M&Ms … to stop it freezing so fast I’m
gonna put the towel over the dry ice too,
under the tray, and that will give me
more time to chop these M&Ms. Now that
they’re chopped I’m taking off the towel
and adding the tray back I think it was
actually just easier to take the tray
off than it is to put the towel on and
off. Spread that mixture out. A couple of
tips for you don’t make your ice cream
too thick because it is harder to roll.
It still works it’s just not as pretty
when it’s this thick. Now my turn I want
some Oreo and Nutella and I’m just gonna
chop those up while it is off the dry ice
and then once that’s fine put it on to
freeze and just spread it out. For the
ice cream base for all of these I’m
using my vanilla ice cream recipe and
I’ll put all of the details about that
on the blog post on howtocookthat.net
there’s a link to that below and I’ll
also link to that video at the end of
this one. And then once you’re happy with
it roll up that still a bit too soft
it’s not roll properly like that so just
pop it back on the dry ice for a few
more seconds. Try again and look at
that perfect ice cream rolls at home.
They melt pretty quickly so you do need
to eat them straight away. YUM these
are very very good. Dave would like
peaches and cream so just chop up the
peaches this is so much fun just making
everyone’s ice cream flavor to order.
Spread it out and let it freeze and then roll
it up. I found it easiest to have the
tray up against the wall while you’re
rolling so that it doesn’t slide. Look at
that. How about we do one more for you
guys I’m gonna make it Caramello koala
flavored just chop it up really well so
we don’t have any big chunks and then
spread it out and roll it up. I wish I could
just pass this to you through the screen
so you could eat it. Just imagine that
you’re here in my kitchen … do you want
some extra caramel over the top? There
you go. Subscribe to How To Cook That and
