As you all must be well aware of, we have a variety of ice creams under our bouquet of ice creams. One infamously loved flavor of ice cream is the SeaSalt ice cream. Most of us have tasted this flavor of ice cream at the Tokyo DisneySea. There are varieties of this ice cream that is offered by several brands. There are white, cream, blue and many other versions of this ice cream.
For the ones who have never made ice creams earlier, for them too it is super easy to prepare like the blue moon and turkish ice cream variants and tasty to have. This ice cream has a sweet and salty flavor – sweet because of the cream and sugar and salty because of the sea salt. The sea salt ice cream became famous because it was oftenly shown on the kingdom of Hearts II that use to have discussion about the delicious tasting ice creams with salty and sweet taste.
Sea Salt Ice Cream Recipe
The sea salt ice cream’s blue colored version is popular at Hakata – Japan. There are several local sea salt ice cream shops in there that has the blue colored version of this wonderful ice cream.
The ice cream we are making in the following recipe isn’t blue in color and is creamish white color. But the taste is impeccably delicious. Most of the guests at the Nieves Cincode Mayo love this ice cream flavor. You can drizzle some honey or chocolate syrup over your ice cream to enjoy its flavorfulness. Let’s now look at the recipe.
- 1 Cup of Chilled Milk
- 2 Cups of Heavy Cream
- 2 Tsp of Vanilla
- ¾ Cups of Granulated Sugar
- ½ Tsp of Sea Salt (Can take as per your required taste)
- Blue Food Colorings (Optional – If you want to try out blue Sea Salt Ice Cream)
Step 1: Take a Medium-sized bowl – add milk into the bowl and add sugar to the milk. Then stir until the sugar gets dissolved in milk (you can also use a mixer on a slower speed)
Step 2: Then, add Vanilla extract and the heavy cream into the previous mixture and again stir
Step 3: Once the mixture is completely stirred, add the optional blue food coloring’s around 10 drops and stir (Make sure you do not add all drops together – add one drop, stir, drop, stir – the process continues till you get the blue colored mixture)
Step 4: Now, once the mixture is almost ready, add sea salt little by little and continuously stir – do not add all of ½ teaspoon, taste the mixture after you put some sea salt and if you feel the requirement, then continue adding
Step 5: Then cover the mixture and let it cool down in the refrigerator – this is required for the people whose cream has started melting and it requires to be cooled down
Step 6: Once the cream is cool along with the entire ingredients in the mixture, pour the ice cream in a vessel that you can keep in the ice cream maker and follow the instructions given in the ice cream maker
If you do not have an ice cream maker, transfer the mixture into a metal cake pan and keep it in the freezer of the refrigerator.
Let the entire mixture sit and cool so that the edges of the ice creams turn firm – if you remove the metal container and edges aren’t firm, then place in the freezer again to completely cool and form the ice cream. (Check our article on how to store ice cream to learn more about it)
Step 7: Once the ice cream is completely firm, then take it out and let it get little warm so, you can remove it in small bowls or on popsicle sticks – if you want to have a stick ice cream and then let it cool for next 3 hours in the fridge.
Step 8: Now, remove the paper from the molds and keep the popsicle to get frozen again overnight and your blue colored sea salt ice cream is ready for a bite. We serve this ice cream with some nitrogen gas over it for a beautiful look.
Some ice cream brands use eggs in their sea salt ice cream, but we prefer to keep it simple and vegetarian to be a part of most of the guests that visit our stores. As we believe in offering fresh and best products, we do not store these ice creams for longer. Thus, we cannot exactly say how long it takes for this ice cream to go bad. Also, you can check out our blog post on Is ice cream good for you.
We prefer keeping it for highest of 3 days post which we dispose it off and make new Popsicle. Let us know how did you find this amazing recipe of ours. You can also try out some Japanese Ice cream flavors for yourself at our store.
