2. Seaweed Ice Cream

Seaweed ice cream is a remarkable and unexpected treat that elevates the concept of seaweed snacks to a whole new level. While seaweed is commonly associated with savory dishes and crispy snacks, incorporating it into ice cream may seem unusual.

However, the addition of seaweed to this homemade delight creates a unique and delightful flavor. The earthy and slightly salty notes of the seaweed provide a pleasant contrast to the creamy sweetness of the ice cream, resulting in a harmonious blend of flavors that captivates the palate. 

The combination of whole milk, heavy cream, sugar, and cocoa forms the rich and creamy base of the ice cream, providing a smooth and luscious texture. As the ice cream churns, the pieces of nori, cut into small 1-inch squares, infuse their distinct umami flavor into the mixture.

To further enhance the richness, bittersweet chocolate is incorporated, contributing depth and a hint of indulgence. The result is a delectable and unforgettable dessert that showcases the remarkable potential of seaweed to create exciting and unexpected culinary experiences. Get recipe here
