How Many Scoops of Ice Cream Are in a Gallon?

Based on a standard serving size of 4 ounces, a gallon of ice cream would yield 32 scoops. That amount is not completely accurate, however, unless the scoop is leveled off and only the portion of ice cream inside the scoop is counted.

In reality, the average scoop could be 6 to 8 ounces in size when the ice cream that sits above the scoop line and around the edges is included in the measurement. Popular ice cream stores like Cold Stone Creamery and Baskin-Robbins have been known to serve more than the official serving, sometimes adding as many as 2 extra ounces to one serving.
