You scream… I scream… We all scream for Ice Cream!

Okay, I’m sorry for the last entry. I was just exhausted, had little food in the house, and couldn’t figure out what to write about. For GOOD news, Tuesday is Free Ice Cream Day at Ben & Jerry’s. All of their sorbets are non-dairy Kosher, last I heard, so… Enjoy free ice cream!

Thinking of ice cream has ice cream on my mind and my cooking. It has me thinking of the tasty joy it brings to people, and the sweet, sweet numminess! Also, if you want, there’s Klien’s Kosher Ice Cream & Annabelle’s Ice Cream for some very delicious Kosher ice creams, for example. Also, check the freezer section for other yummy kosher goodness. But, I do digress. Today, I want to look at Fried Ice Cream, one of the most delicious desserts on earth:

Fried Ice Cream

3 cups Grape Nuts
6 scoops of your favorite Kosher Vanilla Ice Cream
1 package of Fantastic Tempura Mix (Only Tempura mix I’ve found that’s certified Kosher)

Start by scoopint the ice cream into balls and keep aside in a metal bowl that’s been chilled in the freezer. You want to keep the scoops as COLD as possible. In fact, setting the scoops BACK into the freezer for another 30 minutes before making the dessert’s a great idea.

Once the ice cream is nice and hard, take the scoops and roll, roll, roll zem in ze Grape Nuts, trying to cover as MUCH of the ice cream as you can. These are going to be what gives your fried Ice Cream it’s cruncy shell.

Put scoops in your chilled metal bowl, cover the bowl with waxed paper before setting them in the freezer overnight (Or at least 6 hours). This is to give the ice cream & the grape nuts time to fuse together, forming a permabond that will keep them from falling apart.

When it’s time to make the dessert itself, mix up the tempura mix according to package before taking the ice cream balls out of freezer.

Now, I assume that you ALL have a deep fryer of some sort that’s been warming up vegetable oil for your delight. If the oil’s nice and hot, we’ll get to the fast step. You quickly roll the balls in the tempura mix, then immediatly drop each scoop into the ice cream. It won’t take long to fry them, and you’ll know the scoops are done when they float atop the oil. DO NOT OVERCOOK!!!

A lot of people like to top their fried ice cream with powdered sugar and honey like a fry bread, U-Bet chocolate syrup, whipped cream, cinnamon… The toppings really are endless. It’s best to top and serve once finished cooking, so the ice cream inside is still cold when the thin shell is broken to reveal the creamy delight inside. On a side node, as I end this article, I did want to mention the new Coca-Cola Blak. While certified Kosher Dairy, in my personal opinion it is not that good of a drink. Of course, Ramune drink and espressos are my personal favorites, so what do I know? Just, if you try it, go for a SMALL bottle before getting a full 6-back. Trust me. It’s taste is rather… Unique. Anyhow, until next time, Shalom and Good Cooking!

    where can you buy that tempura mix?

    It’s sold in most Health Food stores, and runs for about $4 a box for the mix. It’s a nice mix, actually. It’s made by Fantastic Foods, and their site has a store locator to find their products. Due to the fact all their products are vegan and Organic, they’re certified Kosher thru Half Moon-K. Yes, I know there have been problems in the past with this group, but as reported on, they’ve REALLY improved & tightened things up. Hope this helps!
