Journeys East Asian Ice Cream Surprise.

Yield: approximately 1 quart

All of the sweet creations from Tulalip Resort Casino are produced at our in-house bakery for our guests to enjoy throughout the property. At our Journeys East restaurant, the pastry team creates a signature ice cream dessert that utilizes an ice cream base that is much easier to make than the standard custard based American style (resulting in a denser ice cream mixture) that everyone is more accustomed to eating. This particular ice cream recipe mixture is different due to the lack of eggs and the use of condensed milk, which is a very popular sweetener in Asia. It also gives it a distinct flavor and mouth feel. When making this recipe, I recommend adding a favorite fruit puree to the mixture. Currently at Journeys East, we are showcasing passion fruit, mango, and strawberry fruit flavors. As the weather begins to heat up, and the fruit options become more plentiful, breaking out this recipe would be a welcomed cooling, sweet treat.


1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 cup heavy cream

1 cup whole milk

1 cup pureed fruit *see note

1 ounce fresh lemon juice


nWith a whisk mix all ingredients in a large bowl until incorporated. Once fully combined, place in an ice cream machine and operate per manufacturer's instructions

nFreeze until set. This ice cream will keep in the freezer for two weeks

*NOTE: Use frozen fruit, ripe fresh fruit purees, or unsweetened juices. If making your own purees is preferred, start by removing the skin and seeds, if any. Place into a food processor and run until smooth. Pass through a strainer to remove any seeds or membrane that isn't desired in the final product.

Pastry Chef's "Tricks of the Trade"

When making ice cream or sorbet, pre-freeze the ice cream container before adding any ingredients. This will prevent the ice cream or sorbet from having any melty sides and keep the product optimal.
