Been very busy--like everyone else, it seems this Summer. So, when I found this Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker in my kitchen cabinet, I couldn't wait to pull it out and treat myself to some really good and really easy ICE CREAM.
It's very easy. First, freeze the insert in the freezer overnight. Then place it in the machine and add your ingredients. Turn it on and in about 20 minutes, you've got up to 1 and a half quarts of ice cream. Too much for a couple of people, so I elected to make a quick pint or so of strawberry ice cream. 1 pint of cream, 4 oz of crushed (over-ripe) strawberries with the juice. If you want it sweeter, add a pack or two of Stevia.
Don't stop with strawberry, try any crushed fruit.
And don't stop with cream when ice MILK or Yogurt will also make a nice icy dessert.
In fact, don't stop with dairy bases, you can also make nice fruit ices or savory SORBETS--dig into those interesting palate cleansers--don't stop with desserts!
In fact, once you have your ice cream maker out, try every frozen concoction you can think of--they will all be great. It's going to be one, long, hot Summer. I will share more recipes as the Summer lingers, but get your machine out now and don't miss a moment.
