Food Science: States Of Matter


By Cooking Panda

We’re changing states of matter in the first episode of Cooking Panda’s Food Science! Join us as we make Dry Ice Ice Cream. You can recreate the experiment at home using the ingredients and directions below. But remember, your dry ice has to be really powdered! And you want to let it sit in the freezer before eating. Watch the video to learn even more about states of matter!


  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup powdered dry ice
  • Directions

    1) In a food processor or blender, blend dry ice until you have a fine powder. You don’t want any large chunks.

    2) In a large bowl, combine milk, heavy cream, sugar and dry ice. Stir until ice cream begins to thicken. If it’s not thickening, add more dry ice until it does.

    3) Place ice cream freezer for at least 10 to 20 minutes before serving.
