Ice Cream Scoop Buyers’ Guide
What you really need to look for in an ice cream scoop is a good handle to grip, sharp edges, and wide scoop. First of all, you will need to heat the scoop under hot water for about 20 to 30 seconds. For round and even scoops, try to make ice cream from the side. Glide through it using “S” shaped motion. Do not take too long to scoop it, or else it will melt. When you have already dipped ice cream, place it into a dish or waffle cone, and enjoy it!
As already mentioned dipping the scoop into warm water before using it makes your job many times easier. Many think digging an ice cream from the center is the right thing to do. Actually, you will need to scoop from the edges. Accurately tap the scoop for the ice cream to release in a bowl and for the cones, press it on the cone to seal then gently pull it away. Now, as you proceed to the second scoop, make sure to dip it into warm water once again and perform the steps once again.
The calories in your ice cream depending on the type and adding flavor to it. According to USDA, a scoop of vanilla ice cream equals about 137 calories, including 7.2 grams of fat, carbs of approximately 15 grams, and 2.31 grams of protein. However, note that these numbers indicate the plain scoop of ice cream without any flavors. Once you start adding them on your scoop, calories will increase based on the type of flavor. A typical cookie flavoring will add 13 calories to your ice cream totaling 150 calories.
