Ice cream making goes back centuries, with stories of ice being carried from the mountains to make frozen concoctions. But we don’t have to go to the mountains. We can just walk to our kitchen counter top where our homemade ice cream maker sits, and have delicious frozen desserts or drinks in minutes.
When you have an ice cream maker of your own, you can be sure of having the time of your life with family and friends all summer long.
There several different models on the market to choose from. You can buy an ice cream maker that specializes in the creamy soft serve ice cream, or you can purchase an ice cream maker that has all of the bells and whistles. These ice cream makers can freeze anything you create. Besides delicious homemade ice cream, you can have frozen cocktails, sherbets, sorbets, and gelatos in a few minutes.
Make your favorite frozen desserts right at home, a delicious way to top off any meal, or to serve at summer time parties around the pool.

Your ice cream maker may be a manual mixer which requires the batch to be frozen for a few hours before its ready. Then there is the electric ice cream maker – with a built in freezer which comes with full instructions and can freeze ice cream in a little as 20 minutes.
Your ice cream maker will really expand your summertime menu. When family and friends are coming to visit, you will always be able to prepare a dessert that everyone will like , and in a short amount of time. The kids will love it too they will be able to invite their friends over for afternoon fun in the pool and then impress them by making icy drinks all by themselves. All it takes for a healthy frosty drink is to pour in ice and fruit juice.
The kids would also enjoy the gel ice cream maker, like the play and freeze ball, that has a gel container that is pre frozen. Then you just add the ice cream mixture and toss the ball around. The tossing or rolling movement takes the place of a paddles for the churning motion necessary to freeze ice cream.
Here is delicious ice cream recipe to make for family and friends.
Vanilla Ice Cream
4 egg yolks
1/2 pint milk
1/2 pint heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
Pour the milk into a saucepan and bring slowly up to boiling point but DO NOT LET IT BOIL. Place the vanilla pod into it and leave to infuse for about 20 minutes.
Pour the milk into the mixture of egg yolks and sugar while stirring. Pour the mixture back into the pan and heat gently, stirring until the custard thickens – DO NOT BRING TO THE BOIL OR IT WILL PROBABLY CURDLE. When you can see a film form over the back of your spoon it’s time to remove the saucepan from the heat. Leave to cool. When the custard base is cold stir in the cream. Transfer the whole mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
