If you want a luxurious dessert, look no further than ice cream made with olive oil. Olive oil imparts a creamy and silky texture to ice cream recipes. It gives your favorite ice cream recipe a balanced consistency and unforgettable taste and mouth appeal.
When we first heard of using olive oil in ice cream recipes we thought that could be an interesting twist to your favorite ice cream recipes, but how about if you don’t have the time to make homemade ice cream?
Both Chris at Shared Appetite and Nona at Rossella’s Cooking with Nonna has some great ideas for quick gelato or ice cream made with olive oil without all the fuss and time investment that churned ice cream takes to prepare.
This recipe goes together so quickly and tastes so good. We also provide some variations we have tried from Chris’s recipe and also Nona’s recipe below:
Additions you can make to this recipe when serving are only limited by your imagination. Here are some of our favorite serving additions:
So if you have the time and patience, here is homemade from scratch version of olive oil ice cream. Everyone recipe is close to this, it’s the additions that you add that make it your own! You find this recipe on Bon Appetit to All Recipes and they are pretty much the same, we have added some ingredients to the standby recipe below:
How you top your finished ice cream or gelato is what takes it from a simple dessert to something sublime and uniquely yours. Also using some of the Tastealotta infused olive oils could give a whole new flavor other than vanilla to your ice cream creation. Try the Blood Orange, Italian Lemon, or Pistachio Olive Oil for a change in flavoring your gelato or ice cream recipe. You can also try drizzling these oils over your gelato or ice cream before serving them and dusting with flaky sea salt for a change-up in flavors.
A yummy and cool dessert that you can make quickly or linger over making with the homemade version of Olive Oil Ice Cream for the more involved recipe, but a hit for sure with everyone as a summer dessert.
