You might be wondering what exactly is ice cream bread? I had never heard of it either, until recently.
I was scrolling through Pinterest when I came across a video for ice cream bread. I couldn’t help to watch…I was very curious.
I was looking up recipes and one thing I noticed (a few times) was they said do not try this with light ice cream.
I’m not much of a baker, but I figured why not? I don’t like being told I can’t do something so I decided to give it a shot.
The two ingredients you need are self-rising flour and ice cream. I already had the self-rising flour, so I headed to the grocery store to pick out my ice cream.
The exciting part is you can use any flavor ice cream! I went straight to the Halo Top section and picked my flavor. I haven’t made this bread with dairy free ice cream, only regular.
I decided to go with strawberry cheesecake. I hadn’t had that Halo Top flavor before, so of course I had to sample it when I got home. It was really good!
I measured out 1 cup of the ice cream and put it in a mixing bowl so it could melt. Once that was done I mixed in 3/4 cup of self-rising flour. I sprayed a small bread pan with no-stick cooking spray and added the batter.
I popped it into the oven @ 350 for 25 minutes. I couldn’t wait to try it!
I cut the loaf into 6 pieces, which are 2 Freestyle points each. I love that there are so many different ways you can eat it!
I’ve had it with a little bit of jelly, or for breakfast with a side of fruit and scrambled eggs. That’s a two point breakfast and it’s very filling.
It also makes a great dessert. I’ll sometimes put fat-free Reddi Wip on it with some sliced strawberries.
I’m excited to try more flavors. I kind of got stuck on the strawberry cheesecake because it was so good.
Let me know if you try it with other flavors and how you liked it!
One important thing to note is that the Halo Top ice cream flavors can vary in points. It’s always best to double check your points for any recipe.
Yield: 6 servings (2 Freestyle points per serving)
- 1 cup Halo Top ice cream (or other light ice cream)
- 3/4 cup self-rising flour (it must be self-rising flour, not all purpose)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Add the ice cream to a mixing bowl and let it melt.
Add the self-rising flour to the melted ice cream and mix together.
Spray a bread pan with no-stick cooking spray and add the batter.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry.
