How do you like your frozen desserts?

    I know the ideal method for many would be to simply eat/drink your choice of frozen dessert cold, but personally most ice creams and milkshakes are too cold for my liking, so 10/10 times if given the option I’ll warm them up in a microwave. Nothing as unruly as heating it until it gets hot, but I generally heat them until they melt and aren’t as thick and not super cold. There has to be at least ONE other person who agrees that this method tastes good (and is secretly superior to cold ice cream/milkshakes). A lot of people will dismiss this alternative method without even attempting to try it, but I swear if you do this once you won’t ever want frozen ice cream ever again.

    I have actually done this before, as a kid. Unfortunately I did it with Butter Pecan, and let me tell you, the taste was so utterly vile I gave up Butter Pecan for years.

    I'll do this if it is too frozen to scoop out. 10 - 15 seconds of nukage softens it up just enough to make scooping possible. :)

    Thanks for the topic OP. Too many melted ice cream deniers out there nowadays, so this should shut them up.

    Ice cream is too cold and too thick. Trust me, try melted ice cream and cookies just once and you won't go back.

    EDIT: And milkshakes are too thick.

    Terra, most ice creams and shakes are too cold for me, too.

    My solution? Don't eat ice cream or shakes.

    I've slightly melted ice cream tubs from the freezer because the ice cream was too difficult to scoop out before.

    This is some other wild shit, tho.

    I let it sit for at least twenty minutes. Even then, it still doesn't thaw as much as you ice eaters probably think. I'd never microwave it though; something about that just seems wrong.

    I once fell asleep while waiting and woke up three hours later to a pint of cold soup.

    Patience, and let it melt/soften naturally.

    My brother and his friend will microwave ice cream and they are convinced that is how milkshakes are made. They also only do this when they are high. I have given up trying to explain to them that’s not how a milkshake is made.

    Tell me you didn't eat that.

    Sounds like you woke up to a pint of liquid gold!

    Ice cream tastes better than milk tho! And even after you warm up the ice cream, it's still creamy and is a bit thicker than milk without being too thick.

    tbh I warm up my milk before drinking cereal too

    Are we talking close to room temperature? Don't' even tell me above room temp!
  42. Terraforce

    Terraforce Member

    No way in hell would it be above (at least the way I intended when making this topic). Sometimes it can even be kinda cold, just not frozen at all. Room temp is the max I'd say it deserves.

    If I can't scoop it out of the frozen box I throw it in the microwave to speed up the process.

    I...I get that ice cream soup is a thing, but to force it, to prefer it over ice cream in its intended form...I mean...you do you...*shivers*

    I did this when I was younger sometimes just for like 5 seconds or so to make it super creamy. Haven't done it for years though.

    This. This is cool if you wanna get the cream into your bowl quicker, but heating it for any longer than that...grose.
  47. toohectic

    "Sometimes it can even be kinda cold" comes across as though room temperature (or just a bit cooler) is your preferred temperature. Well, we have desserts all over the temperature spectrum, so who am I to judge? I love soft-serve, but that still falls in the frozen spectrum.

    maybe try froyo

    that never seems to taste too cold to me

    There is only one food on Earth that is good at any temperature, and it is pizza. Ice cream needs to be cold and have some semblance of texture (and this is coming from someone who did the ice cream soup thing as a kid). I do like taking vanilla ice cream and stirring in chocolate chips; the act of stirring definitely softens up the ice cream a fair amount. But intentionally microwaving it? Just... no.

    Or gelato. That's usually not too cold and super creamy.
