If you love eating ice cream, why not make your own? Making ice cream at home is a wonderful experience for people of all ages. With so many modern ice cream makers sold in the market, you can have any ice cream flavor you want.
Below are some reasons why you would want an ice cream maker at home.
You can find strawberry, raspberry, blueberry and other berry flavors. There are cookies and cream, mocha, cappuccino and other chocolate flavored ice cream. A wide selection of ice cream containing different nuts and fruits are also available. You name it and it’s very easy to find the flavor you desire in any market. But with an ice cream maker at home, you get to choose the right mix of fruits and other ingredients to have what you exactly want.
Since you have the right to choose the ingredients you want in your ice cream, you gain healthier options. If you have an allergy to some things like nuts or additives, you can avoid them and substitute them with another ingredient or just do without them.
When you have an ice cream maker at home, you are sure that you are always eating fresh ice cream in all occasions and without care on eating how many servings you want.
If you want a fruit flavored ice cream, a homemade ice cream is still better than a commercial one. You can really pick fresh fruits and decide on how fruity you want your ice cream to be. If you want to chew some whole strawberries in your ice cream, so be it. If you want your mangoes or pineapples chunkier then you can just add some in your recipe.
Making your own ice cream is a great experience. Have fun with your family and friends and involve them while making your favorite desert. Teach your kids how to make their own ice cream and ask them for their ideas and what flavor they want to make. Then let them do their ice cream sandwiches.
You don’t need to order ice cream whenever there’s an occasion to be celebrated by the family. You can even bring your homemade ice cream to a friend’s party. Let them try your new recipe or a popular flavor that they love.
With all these reasons, you are now convinced to have your own ice cream maker. But with so many to choose from, how would you know when you are getting something that works well?
When buying an ice cream maker, choose one that is electrically operated. Then consider two things – size and convenience. A common ice cream maker holds about 1-2 quarts of ice cream. It has refreezing bowls and is very handy and efficient to use. Choose an appropriate size of an ice cream maker depending on how much ice cream you can normally consume so that you don’t have to do another batch. Remember that the colder the freezer, the better it is for your ice cream. There are some machines that have good mini built-in freezers although they may cost more. So depending on your budget, buy one the best that you can buy.
With all the good reasons convincing you to buy an ice cream maker, why wouldn’t you want one? Nothing beats the perfect ice cream that suits your taste. So start having fun making every ice cream you fancy in the comfort of your home
