Prepare the Ingredients of Rolled Ice Cream at Home

Whether you buy ice cream from a local ice cream parlor or go to some lavish store. They never disclose the secret ingredients of the ice cream base. But thanks to the texture of this rolled ice cream, that it gives the hints of what it’s made from.

 The two most important and main ingredients of these ice cream rolls are sweetened condensed milk and heavy cream. These are the base ingredients and the whole taste and texture depend on these two ingredients only. Calling them the building block of rolled ice cream won’t be wrong.

Buy sweetened condensed milk so you can avoid the hassle of adding sugar into the milk and then leaving it to dissolve and cooking it for ages to make it thick. So, using sweetened condensed milk is the best approach. Now add heavy cream, this will give the texture to ice cream rolls and will prevent the cracks.

Ingredients of Rolled Ice Cream

Make the base: Take a medium-sized bowl and add the sweetened condensed milk and cream in it. The bowl must be of normal size, not too big that it gets difficult to whisk, nor too small that it spills the ingredients. Now, whisk the ingredient gradually and carefully. Keep mixing it until it forms a smooth batter but be careful not whisk it too much that the cream starts to curd. Now add the salt in it and whisk it a more. The base of your rolled ice cream is almost ready.

Pour the base: Pour that batter in the metal baking sheets or pans. Make sure to take the pan or the sheet with a flat surface. And the sheets must be of metal. Because, if you’ll use glass or ceramic pans the ice cream won’t freeze. Now, divide the batter between the sheets. You should keep the base thin because when you will roll the base, it will collapse. But thin doesn’t mean too much thin that it won’t even curl. The base should be not too thick nor thin. It should be approximately 1/8 of an inch.

Add flavor

For strawberry flavor you’ll need:

1 teaspoon vanilla extract and a half cup of preserved or fresh strawberry slices.

For Oreo cookie rolled ice cream flavor you’ll need:

1/2 teaspoon food cocoa powder and 8 crushed Oreo cookies.

Now, Divide this flavor extract between the pans and stir them carefully. Sprinkle the crushed cookies in the base.

Rolled Ice Cream

Freeze the base for a minimum of 2 hours. Open the freezer and check if the base is completely frozen or not.

Make the rolls

Take a spatula and start slicing the frozen base from top to bottom in such a manner that the base doesn’t crack. Make sure to take a sharp-edged spatula to make the perfect rolled ice cream. Now, after slicing gently roll each strip of the base. Place the rolls in a cup vertically.


Garnish the rolls with chocolate chips, crushed cookies or whipped cream. Tada, your homemade rolled ice cream is ready to serve. And we hope that you found it simple and easy. For more amazing food recipes keep reading My Mind Speaks blogs.
