Create Your Own Flavours with an Ice Cream Maker

in Ice-cream

One of the best things about owning an ice cream maker is that you will have the chance to make your very own flavours.  You can get as creative as you like and use a wide mix of ingredients to develop delicious and healthy ice cream flavours.

Healthy Ice Cream

Most people love ice cream but unfortunately the choices available from the supermarket are usually high in fats and sugar.  If you have an ice cream maker then you have the opportunity to control the ingredients in your ice cream.  This means you can create some great flavours that are lower in fat and sugar and also incorporate some healthy options such as fresh fruit.

Ice cream makers are also great for those with special dietary requirements.  You can make sure your ice cream flavours do not contain any ingredients you or members of your family are allergic too such as dairy or nuts.  Also if you are a vegetarian you can make sure there are no unsuitable ingredients included in your ice creams.

Fun Easy Cooking
Another great thing about an ice cream maker is that it is a fun way to introduce kids to cooking.  Kids love ice cream and will be excited about creating new flavours and making ice cream from scratch.  This can help you to teach kids about healthy eating and also help them to develop essential skills in the kitchen that will benefit them later in life.

Ice cream makers are easy to use and offer a great stand-by for when you need a dessert in a hurry.  You can create tasty flavours with some basic store cupboard ingredients which could be ready in as little as 45 minutes.  This means you can develop great desserts and treats without having too much fuss and bother.

What Type of Ice Cream Maker?

There are lots of different ice cream maker models on the market.  Here are a few considerations you need to make when buying your ice cream maker:

* Size and Capacity
* Pre-Freezer or Removable Freezing Bowl Options
* Cycle Time
* Additional Equipment (spare paddles, pouring jugs, freezer bowls etc)
* Safety features (non-slip feet, locking lids, bowl handles etc)
