Finally the DIY ice-cream maker is here, my daughter is very excited when seeing the ice-cream maker because outside the box got the picture of ice-cream, so I thought she thought there is ice-cream inside therefore want me to open the box. I look thru the step by step picture and the ingredients, it is so simple and with the ingredients in your fridge you can make ice-cream any time you want. Here is the recipe
Approx. 18 square ice-cube
300ml ice water
120g salt (use the cheapest one)
1 egg yolk
20g fine sugar
100ml full cream milk (can change to strawberry/chocolate/coffee etc flavour) （I am using the chocolate milk）
50ml whipping cream
Step 1 put all the ingredient A into the place shown in the picture.
Step 2 mix well ingredient B and pour into the center of the ice-cream maker as shown as picture
Step 3 put in the stir bar and cover it with lid. Turn the moving handle on top of the ice-cream maker in the clockwise position for about 6-10mins.
Step4 when the mixer become cream, change the stir bar to another equipment.
Step 5 at the center of the ice-cream mixer, there is a picture of heart, you can turn it to right or to left to have different shaped of ice-cream comes out.
Step 6 turn the moving handle clockwise again, be sure you have put a cup or ice-cream cup at the bottom of ice-cream maker. You will see your ice-cream start to comes up nicely. You need to turn it fast to have nice shaped.
1. Please do not use low fat milk, you won’t success using low fat milk
2. The whole process, you need to do it fast because if the temperature has increase you won’t get the ice-cream. So make sure you have prepare all the things first.
3. You can put the center container of the ice-cream maker in the fridge for 1 night to make is more cold.(This step is optional)
4. For whipping cream, I am using dairy whipping cream, if use non-dairy whipping cream it will become cream more faster but you might need to reduce the sugar.
I really enjoy using this ice-cream maker because it is really fun to use, you can even involve your kids in the process. Besides, it does not contain any preservatives, it is more healthy and you can make your own ice-cream any time any flavour you like. You can also put in fruits, cotton candy, chocolate, syrup etc on top of the ice-cream.
