Ice Cream Servings
How Much Ice Cream Should You Buy?

Need to find out how many ice cream servings are in a gallon of ice cream? Or are you just trying to figure out how much ice cream should you buy for your party?

This page is dedicated to helping you determine how much ice cream you should buy - so that everyone is satisfied!!

1 serving of ice cream is considered to be 1/2 cup of ice cream...but most people eat more than just a half a cup of ice cream!

So, to determine how much ice cream you need to buy, ask yourself...

ice cream servings

  • Who will you be eating the ice cream?
  • If your guests are small kids or people who only pick at desserts, you will probably be able to get by with just 1/2 cup ice cream servings.

    If your guests are big eaters, then you're going to have to buy a little extra ice cream - they're going to eat more than just their 1/2 cup allotment!

  • What else will you be serving with the ice cream?
  • If you're serving cake and ice cream, you'll only need to give your guests 1/2 cup servings.

    If ice cream is the main part of the dessert (ex. ice cream sundaes), you can count on your guests wanting more than just a regular serving of ice cream!
