SOMETHING NOVEL: Tilapia Ice Cream You Can Make At Home

ICE CREAM now comes in every imaginable flavor. From the traditional chocolate and fruit flavors, ice cream comes also with a veggie twist. Think of malunggay or even the spicy chilli.

The latest, however, goes aquatic with the introduction of the tilapia flavor. Prof. Dana G. Vera Cruz of the College of Home Science and Industry of the Central Luzon State University (CHSI-CLSU) experimented and produced the tilapia ice cream minus the fishy taste and smell.

Vera Cruz used tilapia fillet, all-purpose cream, condensed milk, fresh milk, chopped walnut and diced cheese. Here are the steps in preparing the tilapia ice cream.

  1. Steam the tilapia fillet.
  2. Chop the walnut, dice the cheese, then set aside.
  3. Beat the all-purpose cream at medium speed. Add the condensed and fresh milk while stirring.
  4. Flake the steamed tilapia fillet, add to the mixture and continue beating until thick and fluffy.
  5. Add the walnut and cheese while continuously beating and completely incorporated into the mixture.
  6. Stir the mixture slowly while cooling in order to incorporate air and prevent large ice crystals from forming.
  7. Freeze overnight.

After freezing, the tilapia ice cream can be enjoyed in a sugar wafer cone.
