Fruit Roll Up Ice Cream Ingredients

  • Fruit Roll-Ups: Be sure to use the generic Fruit Roll-Ups, (the kind you enjoyed as a kid!) for the best results. Avoid using natural brands like fruit leather, as they won't provide the same texture and effect that the classic Fruit Roll-Ups do. Tropical tie dye is the most popular flavor to use.

Test Kitchen Notes

  • Flavor Pairing: Select Fruit Roll-Up flavors that complement your choice of ice cream for a well-balanced taste.

    Freezing Tip: Only freeze the wrapped ice cream for a short time to avoid making the Fruit Roll-Up too hard.

    Ice Cream Varieties: Try using different frozen desserts like sorbet or gelato for a different texture and taste.

    Make-Ahead Option: Prepare the Fruit Roll-Up ice cream wraps in advance and store them in the freezer until serving for easy entertaining.
