Our ice cream maker & waffle cone maker let you make gourmet desserts
More and more people are enjoying the many advantages of having an ice cream maker in their homes. With your very own soft serve machine, you can create an infinite number of flavors and types of frozen treats. Of course, this offers a range that is much larger and tastier than any supermarket. However, if you like to get creative in the kitchen, you may even wish to concoct your own flavors.
If you love creamy desserts, but you are trying to watch your calorie, fat and/or sugar intake, then a home machine is perfect for you, because you can substitute many ingredients for healthier options. Consequently, you can eat what foods you like and still stick to that healthy eating regime. You may be apprehensive about buying one of our makers because you believe that they are complicated and time-consuming. However, this could not be further from the truth.
The new models are incredibly easy to operate and the machine does almost all the work, so your time is free to concentrate on other things. In most instances, simply pour your chilled ingredients into the machine, which will then start to churn and freeze the mixture (this takes approximately 30-40 minutes). After this time, you may wish to place the soft, but ready to eat into a freezer to further harden.
The traditional ingredients make a wonderful, rich and creamy treat, but are high in calories and fat. The higher fat version makes a tasty treat now and then, but if you and your family like to eat it quite often then learning how to create healthier versions is a good idea. By replacing high fat milk and cream with lower fat dairy products, you can reduce the amount of fat and calories. Adding gelatin will give you the creamy consistency that you would expect from a good ice cream, without the additional fat. You can also add healthy fruits and berries to your ingredients to give your dessert a vitamin boost.
Having fun with your ice cream maker
Parents and grandparents are always onthe lookout for fun things to do with the kids at home. Making a frozen dessert will keep kids busy on a lazy Sunday afternoon or during the summer holidays. Kids particularly enjoy using an ice cream maker, and most do not mind the time involved in making their own dessert. To make it even more fun, have hot fudge sauce, sprinkles and other toppings on hand. Once the frozen dessert is ready, you can help kids make their own unique sundaes. Older children and teens can have fun on their own or with one of their friends. Making homemade ice cream during birthday parties is another fun idea, your kid’s party guests will love helping to make the frozen treats or smoothies, especially if they have never made frozen desserts before.
