Wasabi is also known as Japanese Horseradish. It is widely available as a paste, and usually mixed with soy sauce and eaten as a condiment with sushi. Wasabi has a sharp and spicy taste. It almost gives a burn in the palate, just towards the end. The burn is short but intense. A wasabi ice cream is essentially a creamy and spicy dish. The creamy ice cream base with a spicy twist is just amazing. It can get really spicy, and eating a spicy ice cream is just amazing and fascinating!

Lemongrass is an ingredient used mainly in Southeast Asian curries and teas. It is used to extract a citrusy and lemony flavor. It is somewhat a mix of lemon and lemon mint, so not as sour and as bitter as lemon. I’m not a person who is very fond of lemon or sour flavours, but I really loved this ice cream. Its bold, smooth, tangy and just beautiful.

Olive oil is one of the favourite ingredients used in salads. Its considered a healthy alternative to the usual oil. It is greasy but has a light flavor. There’s a subtle hit of an olive flavor in the end. Adding olive oil to an ice cream makes it extra smooth and extra yum. Smooth, silkiness and a subtle flavor make this ice cream a must try.

Goats cheese, blue cheese, cream cheese, all are used in ice creams. Cheese is one of the most loved ingredients globally. And introducing this ingredient into the dessert side is a welcome change. Cheese is already fatty, creamy and decadent and adding it to an ice cream just ramps up its flavor. The flavor of cheese depends of the variety, and each variety has a distinct taste in the ice cream. A cheesy ice cream is just great.

Cucumber or kakdi or kheera is a refreshing vegetable, eaten with salad in almost every Indian household. Cucumber doesn’t really have much flavor of its own, apart from a distinctive refreshing one. Cucumber is paired with lemon, honey, mint and many more flavors to make it more flavorful. But the freshness it adds is just amazing!
