Instant Ice Cream
« on: February 19, 2009, 12:32:49 pm »
I just made some instant ice cream for my lunch.

We had a load of unneeded dry ice from a delivery, and I had a pot of flavoured skyr (Icelandic yoghurt-like stuff).

I smashed up the dry ice into a powder, by wrapping it in a tea towel and hitting it with a rubber mallet.  Then poured the powder into a bowl of skyr and stirred it up.  It froze quickly with lots of dramatic smoke and left some ice stuck to the bowl, so I lifted out the ball of 'ice cream' into another bowl to eat.

The end result was tasty, with a slightly acid flavour that I guess came from the CO2.  Maybe I should have added some sugar first.

There's a few recipes on the web for doing the same with cream and milk, but yoghurt would probably work well.

Tastes nicer when made with liquid nitrogen.
