How to make Glow-In-The Dark Ice Cream from Scratch using the US$25.95 Zoku Ice Cream Bowl

So with the Summer coming up officially on Tuesday June 1st 2014, I’m already getting my clothes and stuff packed to return home to Milk River, Clarendon for the long holiday. I’m going back to my parent’s house, which at the back of a shop P&L Enterprises in the Rest Square across from the Milk River Police Station.

That means days filed with nothing more than watching Television and doing blog article for publication later in the Summer for my personal Blog, My Thoughts on Technology and Jamaica and the Geezam blog, for which I’m and Associate Editor. It also means I’ll have to go back to my parent’s Kosher diet of just Fish, unsalted Brown Rice and Vegetables.

Right now I’m looking forward to returning home. But after being in Kingston where everything is sugary and sweet, the Bland diet of my parent’s isn’t gonna go down too well. In my blog article entitled “How to make Chocolate Syrup that Glows-in-the-Dark, the ultimate Ice Cream Party Treat” I’d explained how to make Glow-in-the-Dark Chocolate Syrup.

That would go great with some homemade Ice Cream made with the US$25.95 Zoku Ice Cream Bowl as described in “Zoku Ice Cream Bowl makes ice cream while you eat it”, published May 15, 2014 5:27 PM PDT by Brian Krepshaw, CNET News. So Today for this DIY (Do It Yourself) I’m just gonna show you how to make Glow-In-The-Dark Ice Cream.

You’ll need the following ingredients:

1.      2 cups of heavy whipping cream
2.      1 cup of whole milk
3.      ¾ cup of sugar
4.      2 eggs
5.      4 teaspoons vanilla extract
6.      1 Cup Cocoa Powder
7.      ½ teaspoon salt
8.      6 Egg Yolks
9.      1 Bottle Schweppes Tonic Water
10.  Stainless Steel or Ceramic Non-Stick Pot
11.  Hand Blender or Metal Whisk
12.  Gloves
13.  Gas Stove
14.  Ceramic Mixing Bowl
15.  Wooden Spoon
16.  Metal Spoon for Testing Chocolate Syrup
17.  UV Lamp
18.  Cooking Thermometer

The instructions are fairly simple really.

1.      Place the US$25.95 Zoku Ice Cream Bowls in the Freezer to chill for 24 hours
2.      Mix all the above ingredients together while blending them with the Hand Mixer
3.      If making Chocolate Ice Cream, use Cocoa Powder, otherwise use the Vanilla Extract
4.       Pour in the 1 Bottle Schweppes Tonic Water into Stainless Steel or Ceramic Non-Stick Pot
5.      Set to Boil
6.      Once Boiling pour the ingredients into the boiling Schweppes Tonic Water
7.      Whisk while Boiling
8.      Boil until thick enough to coat the Wooden Spoon
9.      Set to cool down to Room Temperature using the Cooking Thermometer to check the temperature
10.  Once at room temperature, start stirring while pouring into your US$25.95 Zoku Ice Cream Bowls while serving
11.  At this point the thickened mixture will form into Ice Cream before your very eyes
12.  Pour On your Glow-In-The-Dark Chocolate Syrup and even a few sprinkles to taste
13.  Turn off the lights at nights and turn on the UV Lamp to make the Ice Cream Glow-in-the-Dark

Trust me, making home-made Glow-In-The-Dark Ice Cream or Jello is for me the highlight of the Summer. Goes down even better with some Glow-In-The-Dark Chocolate Syrup and a Glass of Port Wine or Merlot to wash it down to calm the nerves, should a Hurricane come barreling through as stated in my blog article entitled “2014 Atlantic Hurricane Season looking Fairly Quiet - How Hurricanes are formed as Hurricane making Landfall equals Disaster”.

This Summer will be special as it’s the World Cup 2014, about which I’ll be doing an article quite soon. So Glow-In-The-Dark Ice Cream coated with Glow-In-The-Dark Chocolate Syrup using the US$25.95 Zoku Ice Cream Bowl seems to be just the sort of thing that would make any Hurricane bearable.
