To make your very own Spaghetti Eis (because, let’s face it, vanilla ice cream will always taste better in the form of spaghetti!) you will require a potato ricer (any cheap one will do!), an electric mixer, and, if you are making your own strawberry sauce, a food processor or hand blender.
You’ll also require the following ingredients (makes 4 portions):
- 900g of vanilla ice cream
- 2tbsp white chocolate flakes, slivered almonds or desiccated coconut
- 100g thickened cream
- 200g fresh strawberries
- 2tbsp icing sugar
- Mint leaves (optional)
Note: strawberries and icing sugar may be replaced by store-bought strawberry sauce (although it will always taste better if the sauce is fresh!).
Before you start, we suggest placing 4 plates and the potato ricer into the freezer for 15-20 minutes, to ensure that the ice cream does not melt immediately. For the sauce, roughly chop up the strawberries and blend them with the icing sugar until they form a sauce-like consistency, cover up and place into the fridge.
Next, beat the cream until it forms a stiff peak. Pipe or spoon and even amount of cream onto the centre of each plate. Then, press the vanilla ice cream onto the plate, fully covering the cream. Finally, spoon an even amount of strawberry sauce on top of the ‘spaghetti’ and garnish with white chocolate flakes, slivered almonds or desiccated coconut and mint leaves (optional). Guten Appetit!
Note: some like to add finely diced strawberries into the strawberry sauce after it has been pureed to imitate tomato chunks.
