Our favorite season is coming around again; Summer Time! Summer time means being able to go outside and do all the things that we don’t get to do in the winter.
The sports, the swimming, the gardening, and of course we can make ice cream. Although with an automatic ice cream maker you can have ice cream anytime of the year. But in the summertime when the weather is warm, we tend to think of ice cream more often.
On a hot day we like to gather family and friends together on the patio or deck, and enjoy a nice cold treat. And it doesn’t always have to be ice cream. With the modern ice cream maker we can make all kinds of frozen treats.
You can have smooth professional quality soft ice cream, yogurt, sorbet and sherbet in a soft serve ice cream maker. Not only does it make all of your favorites, it has three built-in condiment dispensers, it makes them extra delicious! Just a pull of a tab sends sprinkles, chips and other mix-ins down the chute to mix right into frozen desserts as cones or bowls are filled. Operation is fully automatic; simply pour in the ingredients and turn the dial. It can also add your favorite mix-ins into the soft serve ice cream as its dispensed!
Many soft serve ice cream machines come with recipe books full of different soft serve mix recipes, but the truth is that nearly any ice cream recipe can be adapted for preparation as soft serve in a soft serve machine. You will just need to lower the fat content of the traditional ice cream recipe by about 5 to 10 percent. This is usually done by slightly lowering the amount of milk that is added to the mix. Once you’ve created your mix, simply pour it into the machine as directed, and then wait for it to chill, harden and get air introduced. The amount of time you’ll need to wait is dictated by your soft serve machine’s specifications and directions. To make “lite” ice cream, substitute skim milk, pudding with artificial sweetener, and lite non-dairy frozen creamer.
