Vegan Deep Fried Ice Cream Burrito

Whenever I go to Niagara Falls or Canada’s Wonderland, I cannot resist the temptation to try deep-fried ice cream. Unfortunately, there are rarely any options for vegan deep-fried ice cream! That is why I created my own deep-fried ice cream recipe so you don’t have to miss out. This burrito-style deep-fried ice cream uses phyllo’s pastry sheets, which is way crispier and lighter than your average ice cream ball ! Remember to make extras because your friends will devour them when they see this.

Alternative ways to make this recipe:

You can choose any vegan ice cream you like. You can also replace the pistachio nuts with almonds, peanuts or any crunchy garnish you love and enjoy with your ice cream.

Deep Fried Ice Cream

Deep-fried ice cream is enjoyed all around the world. Some say it originated in Japan, whereas some people say it originated in the United States. But what both countries do have in common is that they do not mess around with deep-fried food. The balance of crispy and warm on the outside with a cold and meltable texture inside, you can have it all with this recipe. With the world becoming more globalized than ever, I love seeing how the fusion recipes between countries create new perspectives and a deeper appreciation for people and culture.
