Hello everyone! In preparation for summer I thought it appropriate to put together this DIY ice cream cold plate project which turned out surprisingly easy and effective. The whole process is demonstrated in the embedded video above, and a written description will follow. If the embedded video does not work for you on mobile here is a direct link to the video on YouTube.
An ice cream cold plate is used to rapidly freeze and mix ice cream moments before it's served. It's a great method for making custom flavors on the fly as the ice cream can be made in individual portions then immediately scraped clean to start again.
First things first, here's a list of all the items used.
- 2 Towels
- Large Baking Pan
- Frying Pan (I used cast iron but any variety will work)
- 3-5 lbs. of Dry Ice
- Vodka or Rubbing Alcohol
Ice Cream Recipe:
- Heavy Cream
- Sweetened Condensed Milk
- Strawberries (Or whatever else you would like to add for flavor)
- 2 Spatulas
- Mixing Bowl
