The Best Ice Cream Machines for Healthier Desserts
You can even enjoy foods that taste just like ice cream as a healthy dessert. The best way to do that is to have an ice cream machine. The Yonanas Frozen Healthy Dessert Maker is an incredible ice cream machine and it makes this a frozen treat like you’ve never had before.
You can enjoy a half cup serving of Yonanas and only get around 100 calories depending on the ingredients you put into the machine. What you put into it depends solely on you so even if you have special dietary needs, you can still create tasty treats.
This is a great solution to store bought ice cream for people who are lactose intolerant or who don’t consume dairy products. How it works is easy. You feed frozen fruit into the tube and the machine emulsifies it and turns it into an ice cream treat.
You can use practically anything you want from strawberries to blueberries and even nuts. You can mix frozen fruits without using a banana but the banana is what gives the concoction its creamy texture.
Best of all, there are no preservatives or flavorings with these creations. It’s all natural. You can mix and match various fruits to create your own unique ice cream flavors. The machine can teach your kids to love to eat fruits and makes sure they get those important vitamins and minerals.
Operating the machine is so simple even kids can do it. You just put the fruit in the chute and push on the plunger. The blade emulsifies the fruit and you end up with a soft serve dessert.
Certain parts of the machine are dishwasher safe. The Cuisinart Pure Indulgence product can automatically make frozen yogurt, ice cream or sorbet. Model number ICE-30BC can make frozen yogurt, ice cream or sorbet in less than half an hour.
It can make up to two quarts of whatever frozen treat you want to have. The machine’s powerful motor and mixing paddle do all the work for you. The maker recommends pre-freezing the double insulated freezer bowl before you make a frozen treat.
If you put this in your freezer overnight, that will work. Shake the bowl. If you hear liquid sloshing, then the bowl isn’t quite ready yet. After you take it out, put it into the appliance, place your ingredients into the bowl, add the rotating dasher and then put the easy lock lid on.
This transparent lid has a way that you can add some extra ingredients to the ice cream as it’s making without having to pause the process. The machine’s cord goes out of sight into the base of the machine.
KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker isn’t a stand alone ice cream maker. With model number KICA0WH , you have to use it with the KitchenAid mixer. It is a great attachment to get if you already have the mixer and you want to create great tasting frozen desserts.
You can make up to 2 quarts of gelato, ice cream, sorbet or any other type of cold treat. The treats come out soft serve rather than hard packed. The total time it takes to prepare and make the treats you want to have is around half an hour.
You do have to do make sure that the bowl is completely frozen before you use it, otherwise, it won’t work to bring the treat to the desired consistency. The dasher piece comes with the purchase.
This is the mechanism that rotates within the bowl to prepare the frozen treat. You get the bowl, the bowl adapter which is what makes it work with your mixer, the dasher and the drive assembly. The bowl can’t be washed in the dishwasher but the dasher, the adapter and the assembly can be.
