Have you ever watch a professional scoop ice cream? Does it impress you so much that you want to emulate this extraordinary task? This article will show you how to do just that, allowing you to impress children and friends the world over.


  1. Choose a good scoop. What you are looking for in a scoop is:
    • Good handle grip
      • Ergonomic
      • Won't slide very easily
    • Sharp edges (this makes for easy scooping)
    • Wide scoop (for maximum ice cream retrieval)
  2. Heat the scooper. Scoop your ice cream on the sideboard next to the sink. Put both scoops into a large coffee cup under running hot water long enough to heat them up for 20-30 seconds. If you're scooping ice cream for several kids/people, leave the water running at a trickle into the cup. Heating the scoops makes it easier to glide through the ice cream and ultimately speeds up the process.
  3. Scoop from the side. Using the side edge of your scoop, scoop in a circular motion or an "S" shaped motion, allowing for round, even scoops. Don't take too long-it will melt!
  4. Serve. When you have scooped out the ice cream, place it in a dish or a cone then drop that scoop back into the cup and grab the other. This way you always have a heated scoop handy. The ice cream falls from a heated scoop much more easily than from a cold one - thus using it for only one or two scoops before returning it to the heated water and grabbing the second one.


  • Work very quickly so it doesn't melt!
  • Wash and re-heat the scooper in your container filled with hot water after each scoop-keep your container nearby.
  • Make sure you scoop as directed-in a circular motion or an "S" shaped motion.
  • Try making a banana split by putting three scoops of ice cream (preferably 3 different flavors) on 2 bananas (you may want to use halves of 1 banana, depending on the size of your scoops) on both sides of the dish and adding whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and rainbow sprinkles, and, of course, a cherry on top! (Serves 1)


  • Don't scoop in an almost empty bucket of ice cream.
