Since the day I met my husband I have never known him not to want a bowl of ice cream before bed or after dinner. Not any special ice cream with any extras added just plain ole vanilla flavored ice cream. (I know, blah right). After being married to him for over 5 years I not only found out that this is a “family thing” as in his whole family eats ice cream at night but it never changes always the same plain vanilla ice cream. So I made it my mission to change things up a bit. I decided I wanted to make him Maple and Brown Sugar HOMEMADE Fried Ice Cream using Quaker® Life Cereal.
“Plain ole” Vanilla Ice Cream
Quaker® Life Cereal
Look how easy it was to turn my husband life upside down with this amazing, simple recipe.
The very first thing you want to do is take your plain ole ice cream like shown in the picture below and roll it into balls. Once you are done rolling place them into the freezer for one hour.
While you are waiting take your Quaker® Life cereal (no it’s not just for breakfast) put in in a ziplock baggy and crush it until it is in the smallest of pieces that you can make it. Now it might be a little easier if you have a food processor but if you’re like me this is the best, cleanest way to do it.
Once you have crushed your Quaker® Life cereal, whisk your two eggs and wait the one hour. Take your ice cream out of the freezer and dip you ice cream ball in the egg, then in your crushed Quaker® Life cereal. You want to make sure you get it as covered as you can.
I noticed while making mine that the better crushed cereal worked the best in terms of sticking to the ice cream.
Once done they will go placed back into the freezer for another hour. Longer is ok. About 45 minutes into your hour, you will want to start heating your oil up.
Make sure it is not too hot but hot enough to get the job done. You do not want your Quaker® Life cereal to burn.
You will only fry the ice cream for 10 to 15 seconds before they are done and ready to eat.
Let’s just say that my husband was completely impressed at not only how good it was but at how much the Quaker® Life cereal added to the taste.
Now when it comes to me I much rather make a fun Sundae when it comes to ice cream. Now I don’t eat it often so I had to be creative with my husband plain ole vanilla ice cream. All it took was some bananas, Quaker® Simply Granola, chocolate and a little (maybe a lot) of whipped cream and I was in ice cream heaven.
For this recipe I was able to get all of my ingredients from Walmart!
Oh I bet this is fantastic with Life cereal. We've tried it before with Corn Flakes, and it was not the best.
Hummm Corn Flakes, I didn't even think about that one.

OH MY GOD that looks delicious. I had fried ice cream once at a mexican restaurant in NYC and I completely forgot about it. I need to make this for myself and my girls. 🙂
It really was amazing and something that I will continue to do 🙂 Loved it.

I had fried ice cream before and didn't realized it was so easy with ingredients that we already have at home #client
Yes so easy. I had fun making it too.

When I used to live with my mom in Marlton, NJ. They have a Sushi place called Sushi Kingdom and it was the best ever they have fried ice cream and it’s soooo DELICIOUS! I never knew how they made it LOL. I still don’t know how, but looking at this post it looks really good and I may just have to try it one day (: Thanks for this I am going to PIN!
