About this recipe

An Ice Cream with olive oil flavor that may surprise you at first...

Olive Oil Ice cream


... but that you will like... This recipe is an acquired taste : you may not like it when you first taste it, but if you open your tastebuds, it will grow on you, trust me !

Olive Oil Ice cream

Olive Oil Ice cream
This Ice Cream focuses on the olive oil taste, which is not a common thing you will find in the ice cream parlor down the street, but rather a specialty ice cream that you will find in top pastry chefs boutiques


First day : I'm totally surprised !

Day after day, I taught my tastebuds to get used to it, and I finally liked it !

About Olive Oil

As you may expect, the final taste depends heavily on the quality of the olive oil. If you use a common olive oil from a local supermarket, chances are you may obtain an ice cream that is not too convincing...

Olive Oil Ice cream

Therefore, I urge you to consider buying a premium olive oil. In my case, I was fortunate enough to get an Organic Olive Oil from a small producer in Provence, France : "Le Collet Blanc".

The producer focuses on quality, not quantity, and their olive oil is a top premium brand that I recommend.

Olive Oil Ice cream


There are several ice cream makers that you will need to chose from :
  • Ice Cream Maker with a Freezer Bowl

    This ice cream maker has a special bowl, a container that goes into the freezer


    . Once it's frozen, you put it in your ice cream maker, add your mix, and let the machine stir them until the ice cream is ready.
  • Ice Cream Maker with a Compressor

    This top of the line ice cream maker chills using a compressor. You don't need neither ice nor bowl : you don't need to remember to freeze anything overnight; when you're ready to make ice cream, just add your ingredients and go

If you are using like me an Ice Cream Maker with a Freezer Bowl, you need to place the bowl and the plastic over into the freezer for

a few hours


Also, clean and dry the container that will store the ice cream when done, and chill in the freezer until you are done preparing your ice cream or sorbet

15. Remove the plastic wrap and mix well

16. Pour into the ice cream maker

At first, the mix is liquid, but gradually, it thickens

In summer, I cover the ice cream maker with aluminium foil



18. First, the mix is liquid

19. After

10/15 minutes

, the liquid thickens

20. After

30 minutes

(or sooner depending on your device), you get the ice-cream !
