Soft Mix Ice Cream - Yield Calculator

Soft Ice Cream Yield Calculator

The yield from a 1L carton of soft ice cream mix can vary depending on the overrun (the amount of air whipped into the mix during the freezing process). Generally, soft serve ice cream machines can incorporate between 30% to 50% overrun.

Here’s a rough estimate:

  • Low Overrun (30%): You might get around 1.3 to 1.5 litres of finished product.
  • Medium Overrun (40%): You could expect around 1.4 to 1.6 litres of finished product.
  • High Overrun (50%): You could get around 1.5 to 1.7 litres of finished product.

So, for a 1L carton of soft ice cream mix, you should typically expect to get approximately 1.3 to 1.7 litres of soft serve ice cream, depending on the overrun percentage used by your machine. The number of servings from a 1L carton of soft ice cream mix depends on the serving size. Here are some common serving sizes and the corresponding number of servings:

  • Small serving (100ml): With low to high overrun, you can get approximately 13 to 17 servings.
  • Medium serving (150ml): You would get about 9 to 11 servings.
  • Large serving (200ml): This would yield around 6 to 8 servings.
