Extra virgin olive oil is not a common ingredient when we talk about ice cream. Still, it can be a good match to give a touch of complexity and creaminess to your desserts.
Extra virgin olive oil is rich in vitamins, polyphenols and oleic acid, in addition, its viscous texture helps us to give more structure to ice cream.
Ice cream and olive oil, how to combine them?
Here are some suggestions for playing with the flavors of our olive oils, both early havest and freshly pressed, and combine them with the ice creams you like best:
- Chocolate ice cream with PONS Oil Green Oil Edition and a pinch of salt
- Ice cream with PONS Fresh Crushed EVOO with Fig Leaf, you can decorate it with walnuts on top.
- Vanilla ice cream with PONS Fresh Crushed EVOO with Citric Orange, emulating the “Valenciano”, a typical dessert of vanilla ice cream with orange juice.
