Stirfry Ice Cream Sundae Recipe

Use this ice cream sundae recipe to fool everyone for April Fools Day or to celebrate Chinese New Year.



canned pineapple chunks



canned mandarin orange slices

strawberry syrup (I used Nesquick(R))

vanilla ice cream

chilled plate

spaghetti ice cream maker or potato ricer (keep in freezer until ready to use)


If you are planning to serve homemade fortune cookies with your stir fry ice cream sundae, then you'll need to make them first.

It can be time consuming, so I would make them the day before and store them in an airtight container or ziplock bag.

Directions for Ice Cream Sundae Recipe:


Place the serving plate and the potato ricer in the freezer for at least 1 hour.

To prepare fruit,

Peel and cut the pear into long thin sections to resemble bamboo shoots.

Cut strawberries and kiwi into small diagonal slices - Chinese style.

Drain pineapple chunks and mandarin orange slices.

Gently mix all fruit in a bowl with enough strawberry syrup to coat fruit.

Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator.

30 minutes before serving,

Put the carton of ice cream into the refrigerator to soften. It is ready when it is easily scooped.

Next, remove the chilled plate and potato ricer from the freezer and the fruit from the refrigerator.

Scoop ice cream into the ricer and pack it down. Using a fork, break it up a little more to make it evenly soft.

Holding the potato ricer over the serving plate, press down enough to get the length of grains of rice, then cut them off with a knife and rest the cut side on the plate to make mounds of rice.

Immediately top with stir fry (fruit and syrup mix).

Serve immediately with a homemade fortune cookie.

You'll probably have enough ingredients to make more sundaes.

Homemade Fortune Cookie Recipe

(Adapted from )

These cookies are gluten free.

You could also make mini ice cream cones or ice cream cups with this recipe. Then fill them with one of our homemade ice creams or make a mini ice cream sundae.


1 large egg

1/4 cup sugar

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1/4 cup cornstarch

1 tsp water

1 tsp of vanilla extract


First, print up some fortune cookie messages, cut them out, and set them nearby.

Also, set aside a muffin tin and a drinking glass for shaping the cookies.

Next, beat the egg a little bit. Add the sugar and beat until smooth. Mix in oil.

In a separate bowl or glass, mix together the water, vanilla, a little bit of the egg mixture,and the cornstarch until smooth. Add this back into the egg mixture and beat until smooth.

Lightly spray a nonstick pan with cooking spray. Heat the pan over med-hi heat. Using about 1 tbsp of batter (I use a nice round soup spoon for this part), drop the batter onto the pan while spreading in a 3 inch circle. When you start to see the edges brown slightly, flip it over with a spatula to cook the other side. Although it's time consuming, I recommend making only one cookie at a time. Lift up the cookie when lightly brown. Working quickly and carefully (it's very hot), place a fortune in the middle of the cookie. Fold over so the edges just touch.

Then, press the folded side down over the top edge of the drinking glass. Immediately place in the muffin tin to hold the shape and allow to cool and harden. Repeat to make the desired amount of cookies. When they are cool and hard, they can be stored in a ziplock bag until ready to serve with your stirfry ice cream sundae recipe.
