Delicious Thai Ice Cream in Bread


A village shop is hardly a place a westerner is going to take a lengthy shopping list to. It has its use, but unless you like a fly in your soup, or want to test your willpower and self-control by eating a garlic sausage in front of a soi dog and its big brown begging eyes, the village shop is useful for just a few items.

Beer, cigarettes, three-in-one coffee and soft drinks spring to mind, and if you dig a little deeper there’s what Wonderful Wi has in the plastic container in the top photograph, ice cream and if you’re lucky, the shop will also sell sweet sliced Thai bread because you can then make yourself a real Thai treat. Delicious Thai style ice cream in bread.

A Bread Winner – Thai Style Ice Cream

Long time readers of Beyond The Mango Juice may recall my post A Bread Winner – Thai Style Ice Cream which spooned the mouth-watering photograph below. I’m reasonably sure the post sent a few westerners scurrying to their local supermarkets to buy bread rolls, ice cream and peanuts to give it a go. Doesn’t it look inviting?


The problem with Wilai’s village is the ice cream man has sometimes sold out before he gets there, which is a bit of a tease because he passes through without a squeak of his horn on his way home to the next village.  Nevertheless, there are ways of getting around that, and one is to take a walk to the local village shop and buy everything you need.


This homemade Thai style ice cream in bread is a toothsome treat which took about one minute to make and tasted heavenly. The dough is slightly sweet, and the raisins in it will dance naked with whatever ice cream you choose to fill out your sandwich. You can also sprinkle some cashews or peanuts over the ice cream to rape your taste buds and magnify your magnificent ice cream experience to its magnum effect.

Have you ever had ice cream in a bread roll or sandwich? Or, if not, do you think it would tickle your taste buds?

I'm a sixty-year-old Englishman living in the town of Swindon in rural Wiltshire and I have a real deep desire to retire in Thailand one day. If you don't have a dream then you won't have a dream come true.

  1. Martyn, when I hear the honking horn of our ice man on our soi, I run as fast as I can because , Ice cream in sweet bread with lots of nuts is my most fav way to eat ice cream since I came to Thailand . At the fish pond where we fish on man day when the ice cream man comes I don’t even have to stop fishing , He just brings me one , he knows me and my love for this Thai treat. Great post .

    Malcolm – Apologies for your comment arriving late and having that chap with the pink hat next to it. Let me explain why.

    I left the comments option on the poll switched on and your lovely penned thoughts went to the poll widget instead of the post’s comment page. It’s now switched off but I can’t get rid of the chap in the hat.

    I love ice cream in bread too. I don’t mind if it’s in a sandwich or a roll, they both taste good. The only downside is the amount of calories in them.

    I used to love eating ice cream sandwiches as a kid – the key was soft fluffy white bread and vanilla ice cream, and the ice cream has to be just soft enough that you can spread it out in an even layer.

    I never thought to add something like nuts or raisins, but I might have to take a trip down memory lane and test it this weekend.

    Joe- It sounds like you know how to make a real good ice cream sandwich, adding the nuts and raisins should really soup it up.
