Thai rolled ice cream is an culinary experience worth checking out. Rolled ice cream began in Thailand as a popular street food and has spread to just about every major city in the world. Locally, Frozen Bites in Alliston opened earlier this year.
Owner Wendy Gao discovered the dessert during a trip to Thailand a few years ago. “I thought it would be great. It was trending everywhere online,” said Gao.

How its made
Creating the rolls involves a chilled plate that can be cooled by liquid nitrogen. They use an ice pan with an element that reaches -20 to -30 degrees. That extremely cold steel surface looks like a pizza pan.
It takes an average of two minutes as the milk-based liquid is manipulated until it becomes a cream while the creators throw other ingredients into the mix. They chop and then spread it into a thin layer across the pan and then roll it all up.
