Scoop and Roll

From Scoop To Roll Learn To Create Your Own Homemade Ice Cream Rolls image 6 mini ice cream roll maker with 2 spatulas frosted fusionsIce Cream rolls are exactly as it says on the label – rolls of delicious scoops of ice cream, often prepared to order, so you get to enjoy the spectacle of watching them being created before diving in to enjoy eating them.

It’s a very simple process – when making ice cream rolls, a liquid ice cream base is poured onto a super cold surface, often a frozen pan or plate. As the liquid ice cream freezes, it starts to solidify at the edges. The “scooping” part involves using a spatula or similar tool to scrape and roll the partially frozen ice cream into rolls.

Rolling Through History: The Sweet Origins of Ice Cream Rolls

Ice cream rolls have their roots in Southeast Asia, particularly Thailand. This ingenious frozen treat gained popularity in Thai street markets, where vendors would pour a liquid ice cream mixture onto a cold plate, stir and chop in various ingredients like fruits or candies, and then spread and roll the mixture into thin, delicate rolls.

The process involves a unique combination of culinary artistry and a touch of theatrics, making it a visually appealing and delicious experience. Over time, the concept has spread to different parts of the world, thanks to its novel preparation method and endless possibilities for flavour combinations.

From Scoop To Roll Learn To Create Your Own Homemade Ice Cream Rolls image 2 four ice cream rolls placed in a cup frosted fusionsI recently purchased some ice cream rolls for my little one in a shopping centre and it set me back £6.50 for 4 ice cream rolls. I guess they were generously sized, but I believe the cost of a splash of milk and cream, 2 Oreo cookies and approximately 3 minutes of the vendor’s time is minimal compared to the £6.50 I was charged.

So I thought with this new, yet not new trend, I could share with you some hints and tips on how you can make these delicious treats yourself at home.

With a small investment to purchase an ice cream roll maker, you can create these quick and easy ice cream rolls at home, the kids will love the process and you could save yourself a small fortune buying them for the kids lol.

We’ll also show you a method for making these without any specialised equipment, well perhaps a spatula to scrape and roll the ice cream into the rolls.

  1. Cherie, this is a beautiful post! You are you throughout: I feel I know you as I read. It is so natural and intriguing. 

    I’m 100% in sympathy with you about additives. I go out of my way to completely avoid them by growing organic vegetables and fruit. And I must start making my own ice cream again, which I used to. I’ve been moving around a lot for the last few years, so I haven’t settled back into making it yet. But coming upon your timely piece has inspired me. I will get started and am dying to try some of your recipes.

    I view ice cream as my favourite evening treat! I suffer from hypothyroidism, so I tend to get very hot around the throat, and ice cream soothes this discomfort!  Love it.

    Cherie, this is an excellent read. Coupled with your ice cream passion is your other passion—WA. This is a great way to promote it. They’re my two passions, too.

    Blessings and Success.

    • Hey Linden,

      What a lovely comment to read and may I say, incredibly encouraging! Thank you for taking the time to share such positive feedback. It is truly appreciated.

      I do my utmost to share my love and passion for ice cream in every post, to share my personal experiences, hints, and tips where I can, and to enable anyone, everyone to learn to make and enjoy Ice cream in a healthy and fun way and so to receive your positive feedback, that you feel you are connecting with me as you read is so rewarding! Thank you.

      Yes, the dreaded additives! They are in all our foods, so like you, I do my utmost to avoid them and I also grow my own veggies and fruits (when the weather in the UK permits). I also try to use natural sweeteners, as again our foods are laden with sugars these days. Our article – Balancing Flavour and Health: Natural Sweeteners and Homemade Ice Cream – Frosted Fusions – provides information on alternative natural sweeteners to use.

      I also have a great desire to source foods that are healing, given to us by nature. Have you heard of Nature’s Pharmacy? It’s a concept that links foods that look like our body parts that are good for such body parts. It is fascinating, my article – How To Make The Perfect Smoothie! – Frosted Fusions – touches on it briefly and summarises some said foods. It’s like nature is telling us directly what things to eat to aid our ailments.

      For your Hypothyroidism, Iodine-rich foods are a must (fish, seaweed, shellfish, yoghurt, milk, cheese, eggs, and an absolute must is naturally sweetened, delicious Homemade Ice Cream! lol).

      I have a friend who has Diabetes and I have worked on finding natural sweeteners to incorporate into the ice creams I make so that she can also enjoy them, but as a general, it helps to use these natural ingredients anyway to try and avoid too many sugars.

      I think having Ice cream to soothe your throat is an excellent idea! 🍦😋

      Thank you again for your encouraging feedback.

      Wishing you all the best!

      Cherie :o)
