This homemade rolled ice cream recipe has 3 delicious flavors

Rolled ice cream is one of the most interesting ways to eat the popular frozen dessert. Similar to making crepes, rolled ice cream involves pouring a creamy, liquid mixture onto an ice cold surface where it freezes instantly and then gets rolled up. Once rolled, the ice cream cylinders get placed in an upright position in a cup and sprinkled with various toppings. 

But for home chefs who don’t have a freezing surface to pour their liquid ice cream onto, there are ways to DIY your own rolled ice cream. Here are 3 recipes for 3 flavors of rolled ice cream you can make at home

What You’ll Need

Strawberry Shortcake Rolled Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 8 oz heavy cream

  1. Whisk the heavy cream, condensed milk, and salt in a bowl.
  1. Pour the mixture over a sheet pan, making sure the cream base barely covers the bottom. It should be ¼-inch (6 mm) thick or less.
  1. Sprinkle the diced pound cake and strawberry on top.
  1. Freeze for at least 5 hours or overnight. Make sure to also put your rolled ice cream spatula and scraper in the freezer as well.
