How to make deep-fried exotic ice creams

See also

How about some deep fried ice cream, all hot on the outside and frozen inside for midwinter desserts? Check out the recipe site, Fried Ice Cream Recipe - Allrecipes.com. And vary the ice cream flavor. It doesn't have to be plain vanilla. You can fry mushroom ice cream, green tea ice cream, red bean paste ice cream, or avocado ice cream, for starters. You also could use them as holiday decorations to your plate until they melt, or eat them while they hold together.

To make eight balls fried ice cream that look something like breaded meat balls, you start with one quart of ice cream. In the fried ice cream recipe on the Allrecipes.com site, it specifies one quart of vanilla ice cream. But you can make your own ice cream and use the flavor you want in the first place. Next, you take about three cups of crushed vanilla wafers or as the recipe says the three cups of crushed corn flakes. But some people don't like or are allergic to corn products, especially if the corn might be GMO, so you can bake your own cookies as wafers or buy vanilla wafers and crush them with a rolling pin so you can use them to coat the frozen ice cream balls.

Your third step is to season the cornflakes or crushed vanilla wafers with about a teaspoon of ground cinnamon or your favorite spice. Some people prefer cloves or allspice, or cardamom and cinnamon, or any other spice you like, perhaps with a touch of ground ginger.

You'll need three egg whites. And for your deep frying, you can use two quart of oil of your choice. Choose an oil that works well with high heat, such as melted coconut oil.

Directions

The original recipe at the site, Fried Ice Cream Recipe - Allrecipes.com, instructs you to scoop your ice cream into 8 - 1/2 cup sized balls. Place on baking sheet and freeze until firm, about 1 hour. Then you combine your cornflakes and cinnamon. Or if you use crushed vanilla wafers and spices, do similarly. Then you take your egg whites that are in a separate bowl or dish and beat them until they're foamy.

The next step is rolling the frozen balls of ice cream in the egg whites to coat them. Then you roll the ice cream in the crushed corn flakes or crushed vanilla wafers, or any type of crushed wafers that can take deep fry8ing. You're breading your frozen ice cream balls. The egg white helps the crushed wafers or corn flakes to stick to the ice cream balls. Keep doing this until the balls are covered with the breading or crushed cookies. Then you freeze them once more until they're firm. That will take you about three hours.

The frying step is about putting the balls one or two at a time into a deep fryer or large, heavy saucepan. Then so the hot oil doesn't splash you in the eyes, you heat oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) after you've plopped the balls in the oil. Don't put them in when the oil is hot because the hot oil will splash up and burn you in the face.

What you want to do is use a frying basket that you can put the crushed cookie or cereal-coated/breaded/ ice cream balls in to the basket all at once. Or if you don't have a frying basket, use a slotted spoon, which is more dangerous if the balls splash into the oil and the hot oil hits you in the face. So it's better to use a deep frying basket.

Just fry the balls one or two at a time instead of all at once. That keeps them from melting together or sticking to one another. Fry them one or two at a time for only 10 to 15 seconds, until they're golden in color. Drain on paper towels. Then serve right away before the heat melts the ice cream inside. If you're on a low fat diet, be aware that the ice cream balls do absorb some of the fat, and the nutritional value of the oil is lessened by cooking or frying, depending upon the temperature of the heat. You don't have to stick with vanilla ice cream.

How about green tea, red bean paste, or mushroom ice cream? Or for a savory ice cream that's deep fried, try crushed corn flakes or other savory crushed cereal flakes and garlic ice cream, corn meal ice cream, or mushroom ice cream. Just be aware that by frying the ice cream, the heat destroys some of the nutritional values, especially if you're working with frozen yogurt instead of ice cream containing at least 16% butterfat. But at least you experimented with fried ice cream in midwinter.

Green tea nondairy chocolate mousse without added table sugar

Green tea non-dairy chocolate mousse without added table sugar. To buy green tea powder online see, Green Tea Powder. Green tea is renowned for its antioxidants and great benefits. It is non-GMO. Packed with EGCG, green tea from Camellia sinensis promotes good health in the body. Mix in with water or any other beverage. Serve the green tea chocolate mousse with green tea ice cream. The recipe for the ice cream is below the recipe for the mousse.

Use green tea powder in small amounts instead of coffee when making chocolate mousse. Store your green tea powder in the refrigerator. To make green-tea flavored chocolate mousse, you'll need unsweetened baking chocolate squares, coconut cream, and coconut oil as well as eggs and a pinch of stevia to sweeten. You can pour the chocolate over sweet thawed pitted dark cherries.

Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) melted organic extra virgin coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons green tea powder
  • 1 cup cold coconut milk or can of coconut cream
  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 1 pinch of stevia
  • (Optional) sweet cherries.

Instructions

1 Open a can of coconut cream and stir it so that it looks like whipped cream. Add a pinch of stevia to the coconut cream and stir.

2 Combine the unsweetened baking chocolate squares, pinch of stevia to sweeten, the melted coconut oil and green tea powder in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not simmering, water, stirring frequently until smooth. Remove from the heat and let cool until the chocolate is just slightly warmer than body temperature. To test, dab some chocolate on your bottom lip. It should feel warm. If it is too cool, the mixture will harden when the other ingredients are added.

3 Once the melted chocolate has cooled slightly, whip the egg whites in a medium bowl until they are foamy and beginning to hold a shape. Sprinkle in a pinch of stevia to sweeten and beat until soft peaks form.

4 When the chocolate melts, stir in the yolks. Gently stir in about one-third of the thick coconut cream. Fold in half the whites just until mixed in thoroughly, then fold in the remaining whites, and finally the remaining coconut cream.

5 Spoon the mousse into a serving bowl or individual dishes. If you wish, layer in fresh sweet thawed frozen pitted dark cherries and blobs of air-whipped coconut cream. Refrigerate overnight in a covered container. (The mousse can be refrigerated for up to a day.)

Serves 5-8, depending on the size of the servings. Keep your green tea powder stored in the refrigerator. According to the website, green tea powder may be stored under refrigeration for up to six months. Note that green tea powder contains caffeine.

Avocado-carrot-cocoa-cherry-spinach-goji berry frozen dessert and avocado-lime ice cream are two ways to use avocado and other vegetables in frozen desserts

The creamy avocado added to sherbet makes the frozen dessert taste more like ice cream. And to be called ice cream, a frozen dessert technically must contain at least 16 percent butterfat from the cream.

A non-dairy frozen dessert made to taste creamy with avocado, has no animal fat such as butterfat from milk or cream. Sesame seed paste also can be used to imitate the creamy texture of emulsified avocado in a smoothie or frozen dessert.

Cranberries may be seasonal, but cranberry juice sweetened with a pureed banana in your blender can turn into a cranberry frozen dessert. Just substitute cranberry juice for tart cherry juice but sweeten the cranberry juice with another fruit such as raisins or a banana, if desired. Also you can follow the traditional blackberry ice cream recipes and use those frozen cranberries you put away in your freezer compartment a few months ago.

Green tea ice cream, mochi ice cream, and Rooibus tea and lavender frozen desserts

If you're looking for a green tea ice cream recipe, see, Green Tea Ice Cream Recipe at Epicurious.com. For a mochi ice cream recipe, check out the site, How To Make Japanese Mochi Ice Cream Recipe - Japanese Ice Cream. For more exotic flavors, you can add a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder to a cup of decaf green tea for another flavor.

Another idea is to use cooled Rooibus tea as a liquid in making frozen desserts. Rooibus tea comes from South Africa, but is sold in many supermarkets in the USA. See, Rooibos tea ice-cream - Sardines on Toast and Rooibos tea and Lavender Sorbet.

Avocado-chocolate-carrot frozen dessert

To make avocado-chocolate-carrot frozen dessert, simply add a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder to your blender and blend and puree a peeled, avocado after you remove the pit, with a cup of peeled baby carrots, a handful of raisins or dried goji berries, and a cup of tart cherry juice along with a cup of unsweetened almond milk. If it's not sweet enough for you, add a few raisins and blend or an apple with the core removed, and blend until everything is liquid. For more nutrition, add a handful of clean baby spinach and a sliced raw beet. Emulsify, puree the whole mixture in your blender. Then serve as a smoothie or freeze.

Avocado-lime ice cream

A simple way to make avocado-lime ice cream is to put in a blender two avocados, the juice and flesh of two limes (not the peel), a pinch of stevia, and a pint of coconut non-dairy plain or vanilla ice cream. If the coconut ice cream is already sweetened, you don't need the pinch of stevia. If you want a dairy version, use a pint of vanilla ice cream instead of the coconut non-dairy ice cream.

If you want a frozen dessert instead of ice cream, you don't need to use a pint of commercial vanilla ice cream mixed with your avocado and lime juice. Instead, use nondairy milk substitutes such as unsweetened almond milk and add a pinch of stevia, if you don't want a sugar-based sweetener. You also could use orange blossom honey as a sweetener.

After your mixture is blended and liquefied, pour the frozen dessert into cups or molds, an ice-cube tray, or any other container and freeze for about four hours in your freezer compartment. If you want to loosen the iced dessert from the mold, dip the bottom and sides of the mold in hot water until the ice cream or frozen dessert becomes loosened.

Then turn upside down and serve in a dish. You can garnish with chopped nuts or coconut flakes. The liquid you blend your avocado and lime juice with can be coconut milk, almond milk, hemp milk, soy milk. oat, rice, or hazelnut milk. With the almond milk or soy milk, at least you can choose unsweetened milk which lets you choose your own sweetener.

If you don't use honey as a sweetener (vegans) just use raisins or any other dried fruit in the blender to sweeten or a pinch of stevia. Other versions of frozen desserts made in the same way can be ginger ice cream or carrot ice cream sweetened with tart cherry juice and a pureed apple. You could add a handful of clean baby spinach to a cup of peeled baby carrots and tart cherry juice, for a frozen dessert and then add an avocado.

Carrot-ginger ice cream or carrot-chocolate frozen dessert

For a recipe for carrot ice cream, see, Carrot Ice - Cream Recipe - 123recipes.com. Carrot ice cream easily becomes carrot-ginger ice cream by blending about an inch of a piece of peeled fresh ginger to your blender with the mixture. And carrot-chocolate ice cream uses carrot juice mixed with unsweetened cocoa powder. See, Carrot Ice Cream Recipe - Food.com.

Instead of stevia as a sweetener, some people use a dash of cinnamon if they don't want the sweetness. You can make chocolate carrot juice by adding a tablespoon of cocoa powder to a pint or quart of carrot juice. It can be frozen. To turn it into a frozen dessert, add a peeled, pitted avocado, blend the liquid, and freeze in a mold or cups. Some people prefer a dash of chili powder and a dash of cinnamon instead of sweetener in cocoa.

Garlic ice cream and sweet corn ice cream

Turmeric can be added to carrot ice cream or carrot-cocoa frozen dessert/smoothie, but just a dash, combined with a dash of cinnamon. Savory spices in small amounts can be added to ice creams/frozen desserts, such as a dash of cloves, ginger, turmeric, or cardamom. Some people enjoy corn-based ice cream, or even garlic ice cream. For a garlic ice cream recipe, see, the sites, "Gilroy Garlic Ice Cream,"Garlic Ice Cream Recipe - Food.com, " and "3 Ways for how to Make Garlic Ice Cream at Home." For corn ice cream see, "Corn Ice Cream Recipe | Recipes," and "Sweet Corn Ice Cream - Rick Bayless."

Blackberry Ice Cream Recipes

You can use this no white table sugar and no dairy recipe for blackberry ice cream or use another recipe online that uses whole milk, cream, and sugar, which you can find at this website. Also there are blackberry ice cream recipes at the following websites, first is a vegan blackberry frozen dessert recipe: See, Vegan Blackberry Ice Cream Recipe. The vegan blackberry "ice cream" recipe uses the following ingredients.

Vegan Blackberry Ice Cream Recipe

Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups blackberries
1 1/2 cups unrefined vegan granulated sugar or any other sweetener such as a pinch of stevia or a handful of raisins, pureed in the coconut milk
1 can coconut milk
1/2 vanilla pod

Check out this website for the instructions and the photos of how the blackberry ice cream would look using traditional cream, milk, and egg yolks. The recipe at the website does use sugar, milk, cream, and eggs.

For a recipe that doesn't use sugar or egg yolks, see this vegan one below which substitutes coconut flakes, and sesame seeds for creaminess (instead of the eggs), bananas instead of granulated table sugar, and coconut cream or coconut water instead of the dairy milk and cream. You can use the bananas without also adding stevia, depending on how sweet you want the outcome:

Blackberry frozen dessert using fruit and coconut instead of eggs, cream and milk:

3 cups frozen blackberries

2 bananas

1 pinch stevia

1 cup shredded coconut or coconut flakes

1 peeled or washed organic pear

1 can coconut water or coconut cream

1/3 cup sesame seeds, either white or black sesame seeds

Basically to make this frozen dessert you puree the bananas, sesame seeds, and pear (remove the seeds) with the blackberries in your blender like a smoothie along with the coconut flakes using the coconut water or coconut cream as liquid instead of water. Then you freeze the smoothie-like result of emulsified blackberries and fruit.

When it is not quite frozen solid, serve. Freeze only long enough to be able to get a spoon in the frozen dessert, not frozen solid and hard as a rock. You might try to test it each hour until it's frozen enough for you to get your spoon in the container. You can pour the emulsion into one-pint containers or dessert cups.

For a traditional dairy-and- egg-based blackberry ice cream, try this blackberry ice cream site. As you can see below, the traditional, more familiar blackberry ice cream tastes great, but uses whole milk, sugar, whipping cream, and 4 large egg yolks.

This recipe from this blackberry ice cream site is adapted from the combined techniques of two of the site's favorite dessert books, The Perfect Scoop, and The Professional Pastry Chef. Makes about 1 qt.

  • 1 1/2 c (375ml) Whole Milk
  • 1 1/2 c (300g) Sugar
  • 1 1/2 c (375ml) Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 4 large Egg Yolks
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups (480ml) pureed Blackberries (approximately 4 – 6 oz baskets of berries)
  • 1 Tablespoon (15ml) fresh Lemon Juice
  • Combine the milk and sugar in a saucepan and gently warm to just less than scalding.
  • While milk warms, put heavy cream in a large bowl and cover with a fine mesh strainer. Set aside.
  • Whisk egg yolks and vanilla extract in a medium bowl. Slowly pour the warm milk into the eggs, whisking constantly. Next pour the egg/milk mix back into the saucepan.
  • Heat the milk/egg yolk mix over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it coats the back of a spoon. Pour through the strainer into the heavy cream. Mix in the blackberry puree and the lemon juice.
  • Stir until cool over an ice bath. Cover and thoroughly chill in the refrigerator (at least a couple hours.)
  • Churn in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions.
