First, get a decent machine. The type of machine you want will be determined by how much ice cream you plan to make (and how much you want to spend).

There are basically three types of ice cream makers:

1: Ice bucket. The most common type, consisting of a large bucket for ice and salt, an inner canister for the ice cream batter, and a motor or hand crank to turn the dasher. Pros: Cheap, large capacity, can make multiple batches a day. Cons: Loud, prone to salt contamination.

2: Frozen bowl. Consisting of a bowl with a brine solution sealed in the walls, and a bade unit with the motorized dasher. (The stand mixer attachment is also this type, with the mixer turning the dasher.) Pros: Easy to use, quieter than ice bucket, no chance of salt contamination. Cons: Small capacity, bowl must be frozen at least 12 hours between each batch.

3: Self-freezing. The most convenient of the lot, but the most expensive, as well. Consisting of a base unit with a built-in refrigeration unit, an interior canister, and a motorized dasher. Pros: Extremely easy to use, no chance of salt contamination, makes multiple batches quickly, no prep required. Cons: Small capacity, price.

I have used all three types of machine, having made hundreds of batches of ice cream. I always found the ice bucket to be a hassle, especially when making multiple batches. The delay for re-freezing made the frozen bowl impractical. The self-freezing machine is damn near perfect for my needs. Since I generally make 3-5 batches of ice cream whenever we have a party or family event, it's tremendously beneficial to be able to start a new batch immediately after the previous one has gone into the freezer. I do wish the capacity were larger, but at 1.5qt, it's not much smaller than my usual 2qt batch, and since I can start a new batch right away, it's not really that big a deal. With this machine, I find myself far more likely to experiment than before.

Once you have a machine, you need a recipe.

I started with pre-packaged mixes. They're generally crap. I graduated to Alton Brown's recipes from Good Eats. They make fantastic ice cream, but are very time-consuming. I use them only for special occasions now. These days, I use the base recipes in the Ben & Jerry's recipe book, and modify from there. The ice cream is not quite as good as Alton Brown's recipe, but the batter takes ten minutes to prepare, versus 12 hours. (And frankly, I think I'm the only one who notices the difference.)

EDIT: Link to my current —and favorite— machine: Secura L-150.

Seems the same as this one but with an extra bowl: https://www.amazon.com/Cuisinart-ICE-21-Quart-Frozen-Yogurt-Ice/dp/B003KYSLMW
With the bowl on Amazon it's about $71. So this doesn't seem much like a deal at all.

u/dandeliondreamer · 19 pointsr/DepthHub

A plug for my friend's frozen banana ice cream maker, Yonanas!

I was sceptical before I tasted it but it's much better than from a food processor because the blades spin much faster. It's very smooth like high-quality ice cream. Easy to clean as well. It's super delicious.

That said, I don't own one because I think one-utility things are generally pretty dumb and I don't eat ice cream like products enough to justify the $50 for the machine. YMMV though. If this is the sort of thing you'd be into, I am sure you won't be disappointed.

u/PrezMoocow · 13 pointsr/instantpot

Alton Brown's Vanilla Custard Ice Cream (video included)

Just need to have an ice cream churner, which you can find for about $50 on Amazon

u/Aeroflight · 11 pointsr/foodhacks

I use: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003KYSLMW?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00

It's a very standard ice cream maker. It has a fozen tub and a blade in the center that rotates to churn the cream. The best part of it is it works quickly and outs the proper amount of air in the ice cream. The downsides is that it makes alot for one person, and not enough for a large family. The quality of the ice cream will depend on the quality of the ingredients. You have to wait for it to completely thaw and then refreeze to use, which means you can do a double batch with a bit of trickery, but if you plan on making alot of ice cream you're out of luck.

u/death_hawk · 10 pointsr/todayilearned

I'm about 1/2 the price of HD / Ben&Jerrys and (I think) just as good. I've elicited a few eye rolls upon sampling. But at this point I'm just tooting my own horn.

At first I ripped off a recipe from America's Test Kitchen, but have made some modifications. Plus I've made it more efficient to accommodate flavors. Now I make a batch that portions into 4 units of base. Then I add in a "flavor pack" to make a complete ice cream. It keeps things consistent and I can make up to 4 flavors with one batch of base.

Firstly, you need an ice cream maker. I bought a www.amazon.com/dp/B004MK8434/ out of the US because at the time it was something like $160 and we were par. You don't have to invest in a compressor based model, however if you plan on making a lot of ice cream I would recommend it, especially if it's also under $200. But to start off you can get a canister model that you pop in the freezer. The downfall is that you can only turn one batch before having to refreeze.

Now that you have the hardware, you need the software: Eggs, cream, milk, sugar, corn syrup, milk powder, salt. How much of each depends on how much you plan on making. For me, it's 18 egg yolks, 1L cream. 1/2L milk, 250g sugar, 200g corn syrup, 60g powdered milk, 1/2 tsp salt. Whisk together the egg yolks and sugar while heating everything else. When it comes up to 150F, temper in some of the dairy to the yolks. Bring the whole thing up to 185F slowly while whisking. Strain and chill.

In the mean time, make a flavor pack. This is where you decide what kind of ice cream you actually want.

Here's a dead easy strawberry:
250g sugar and 500g frozen strawberries that have been thawed and mostly drained and roughly chopped. Mix both together and leave in fridge until ready. You can use fresh berries if in season, but Costco sells a giant bag of hulled berries for dirt. I'm lazy so I go this route. Scoop out 250g of strawberries with a slotted spoon as to not get a ton of syrup. You want a little but not a lot. Mix with 1/4 (or about 500g) of the base above. Toss into ice cream maker and come back in about 30 minutes depending on your machine.

Here's an eye rollingly good chocolate:
21g Cocoa Powder, 140g Semi Sweet, 250g cream
Heat and whisk the whole shebang until dissolved and melted. Chill.
Again, add the whole thing into a unit of base and churn as per manufacturer.
After churning you can either just put into a 1L container and freeze or layer in stuff like peanut butter cups, brownies, fudge swirl, white chocolate, raspberry coulis, etc.

Dead simple vanilla:
100g Sugar, 250g Cream, Vanilla beans (I use 4 crumbled because mine are dried out. I have a few under vacuum pack that I could split properly and probably get away with 1-2).
Heat, chill, add to 1 unit of base. Churn then freeze.

u/theColonelsc2 · 9 pointsr/AskCulinary

I've been making homemade ice cream for years. It is always a hit when I bring a batch or two to a summer party. Whenever any one has asked that question I tell them how much it cost ($8 for 2 quarts.) then they want it less and go back to buy it at the store. I still get the praises when it is party time though and that is just fine with me. Invest in a small maker where you freeze the container for 24 hours and then make the ice cream. super easy and you will make small batches for you and friends and family. The best!

u/Sacamato · 7 pointsr/todayilearned

This is the one I got. Oops! It's 1.5 quarts, not 2. Look at me, pulling the same shit as the brand names.

u/IonaLee · 7 pointsr/Cooking

If I were to build my kitchen from scratch, it would be pretty much what I have today w/out having to go through all the old, cheap stuff that I wound up buying getting rid of because it was low quality and wore out or broke or didn't work as well as it should have. So as follows:

All Clad Stainless:

  • 12" skillet
  • 1.5 qt pot
  • 3 qt pot
  • 8 qt stock pot (I have the 12 qt but most people won't use something that big

    Cast iron:

  • 12" skillet
  • 8" skillet
  • other cast iron pieces for grilling that most people won't use

    Enameled dutch oven (Staub):

  • 3 qt round cocotte
  • 7 qt round cocotte

    Various Appliances:

  • Kitchenaid mixer (hand mixer first, then stand mixer)
  • Cuisinart stick blender
  • Coffee maker (I have a Cuisinart, but I'm not stuck on the brand)
  • A toaster oven (again, I have Cuisinart, but check reviews)
  • An electric kettle (no brand specific)
  • Vitamix (optional - I love mine and use it daily)

    Knives:

  • Shun 10" chef knife
  • Shun 4" utility knife
  • No name super-thin flexible fish filleting knife that debones poultry like it was butter
  • Honing steel
  • Magnetic strip for storing knives

    Other misc stuff:

  • Fish turners in all sizes
  • Good set of bamboo (not wooden) spoons/spatulas
  • Set of silicone scraper/spatulas
  • Oxo tongs in various sizes (at least short, med, long)
  • A mandoline slicer
  • Epicurian cutting boards
  • Microplane grater/zester
  • A variety of mesh strainers (I use them more than colanders)
  • Thermopop instant read thermometer
  • A good quality probe thermometer (the kind you leave in the oven)

    Bakeware:

  • A basic set of Corningware
  • A couple of half sheet pans


    Fun things to have if you think you'll use them:

  • Pasta maker or attachment for your Kitchenaid
  • Ice cream maker
  • Bread machine

    These are the things that I have right now that I'd get from the start if I were starting over from scratch. I have other stuff, but it's been gathered over time and I'm sure I've left out a few things, since I'm kind of working off the top of my head. Oh yeah, like a good set of storage stuff (Rubbermaid or similar) and a garlic press ... and ... and ... :)
u/Arachnidiot · 6 pointsr/Cooking

We have this one by Cuisinart. You keep the bowl in the freezer until you're ready to use it. It works very well for us.

u/mirazucar · 6 pointsr/freebies

For the ice cream base:

  • 5-8 egg yolks, for date ice cream, I use 5. For regular vanilla I use 6.

  • 2 cups of Heavy cream

  • 1 cup of whole milk

  • 2/3 cup of sugar

  • A pinch of fine salt. I use the morton brand fine sea salt, but if you can't find it, you can always put salt in a grinder.

  • 2 vanilla beans

    I like the balance of this recipe, but my best friend loves super dense super rich ice cream. When I make batches for him, I use 8 egg yolks, 2 1/2 cups heavy cream, and 1/2 cup of milk. Tinker with the ratios to fit your taste.

    I also use honey instead of sugar for his ice cream, because it makes him happy. I've been asked about using date sugar for this specific ice cream, but since I haven't gotten my hands on it, I can't speak for how much to substitute.

    How to make it:

    Scrape the vanilla beans and put the scraped flesh and pods into a saucepan with the cream, sugar, salt, and milk. Simmer the mixture until all the sugar is dissolved. Don't boil, simmer.

    Whisk the egg yolks in a bowl and slowly whisk in some of the hot cream mixture. Don't do it too fast, you don't want to curdle the eggs. Then whisk the egg-cream mixture back into the rest of the cream mixture in the pan. Cook the mixture until it coats a wooden spoon. It should be fairly thick. If you draw a line with your finger on the spoon, the mixture should stay separate. Like this

    If you did everything well, you shouldn't have clumps. If you have clumps, you'll get better after making it a few times. Strain in through a fine mesh sieve and let it cool. Once it's cool, put it in the fridge to get cold. I usually cook at night, so I just leave it in the fridge overnight.

    I used to have this ice cream maker before someone stole it. :( It was a gift. I couldn't afford a new one, so I got this. It's adequate. The bowl needs to be pre-frozen for 48 hours, though I do it for 4 days. It's important to keep it straight so it freezes evenly. You pour the mixture in, and 20 mins later, done. You now have soft serve vanilla ice cream.

    The dates:

    I puree 15 dates in the vitamix, after making sure there are no pits. I chop 5 dates so that there are nice little chunks here and there.

    I try to buy moist dates, but if they aren't moist, I sometimes add a few tsp of water or bourbon while pureeing.

    Now all you do is swirl it into the ice cream, and put it in the freezer to get hard. Some people like soft serve, I like mine hard and slow melting.




u/juiceguy · 5 pointsr/vegan

The food that you see here was made during a raw foods prep class I taught a couple of days ago. This time, the theme was Thanksgiving. I'll describe each of these dishes to a certain extent, but forgive me if I am not ultra-specific, as I am currently in the process of putting together a book.

  1. Nut loaf: Walnuts, hazelnuts and sunflower, with various vegetables, flax, herbs, spices, olive oil and salt. Mixed well in food processor. Shaped into loaves, then dehydrated at 110F for close to 24 hours.

  2. Mashed potatoes: Cauliflower, sweet potato and macadamia, olive oil, salt and pepper. food processed until fluffy.

  3. Gravy: Top secret for now (as it's a completely new idea, and tastes just like southern gravy). I will say it contains mushrooms and onion. :)

  4. Stuffing: I start with my basic onion bread recipe (onions, flax, sunflower seed, coconut aminos, dates, etc, then dehydrate). Once done, I cut the bread into tiny pieces, then toss with diced apple, celery, raisins, fresh herbs and a touch of oil. All goes back into the dehydratoe for a few more hours.

  5. Pumpkin pie: The crust is your basic raw pie crust... walnuts, pecans, dates, salt all blended in food processor. My filling is pretty unique, but does contain cashews and coconut oil. Ironicly, it contains no pumpkin.

  6. Ice cream: Super easy. Freshly made coconut milk, young coconut meat, coconut nectar and real vanilla bean seeds. I use one of those Braun ice cream makers.

  7. Scones: Soaked ground flax, dates, cranberries, lots of good spices. Shaped into balls, then dehydrated.

  8. Cranberry coconut swirl. This is like a cranberry sause, but sweeter. Cranberries, oranges, apples, young coconut meat and dates.
u/crazyagent · 5 pointsr/trees

Nope, its this. It turns frozen bananas into almost like soft serve.

u/LL-Kool-Aid · 5 pointsr/relationship_advice

I have an older version of this Cuisinart machine. It works well and isn't difficult to clean.

u/lazyAgnostic · 5 pointsr/santashelpers

For the sweet tooth (like my dad, these are all things he likes):

  • A candy jar or bowl filled with her favorite candy.

  • An artisan ice cream scoop.

  • An ice cream maker. You could get an ice cream recipe book as well.

  • One of my dad's favorite gifts was a sugar dispenser... I think that shows his level of sugar commitment.

  • Some artisan marshmallows.

  • A milk frother that doubles as a hot chocolate maker.

    For the executive (like my mom, these are all things she likes):

  • A high quality thermos for coffee on the way to work.

  • A smart home setup, maybe an echo and some smart outlets or the google home. Really good for turning lights on/off, asking for the weather and news, listening to music, etc.

  • A FitBit to help her keep healthy even working long hours.

  • A popcorn maker that allows you to make non-microwaved popcorn in the microwave.

  • A white noise machine. If she has any trouble sleeping this thing is AMAZING.

  • A Roku or Chromecast that makes it easier to watch Netflix on the TV.

  • Wine tasting or cooking class that you can do together. Really my mom loves doing stuff with her family.
u/cramp · 5 pointsr/santashelpers
u/beadyox · 3 pointsr/icecreamery

I've been looking into this puppy for a very long time now. It's super expensive as far as these things go, but I think I'll spring for it.

I wanted something with a compressor and a big capacity, so that already took me up to the $300+ range. What threw me over the top is that I've really always had an interest in potentially starting an ice cream or gelato business, and I'd have to do a lot of testing at home. Very few models seem to be able to freeze anywhere close to the time it takes this, and freeze time significantly affects the final product.

What also sold me on it is that of all the other ice cream machines on Amazon and elsewhere, this one had mostly 5 and 4 star ratings with a couple 3s thrown in there but absolutely no 2s or 1s. Even though 2s and 1s are sometimes outliers anyway, if I'm spending that much on an ice cream maker, I want it to be perfect.

A more affordable option might be the Cuisinart Ice 100, which seems to have pretty good reviews.

u/mburke1124 · 3 pointsr/Cooking

This is the one I have. It works really well. I understand what you mean with the bowl in the freezer. But after I make the ice cream I put it in second container that is much less bulky. I use it maybe once a month so having the bowl in there for a day is much less of an inconvenient than you would think. Not to mention this one is much less expensive than stand alone devices.

u/dissociation844 · 3 pointsr/keto

I bought this one off of amazon. There are cheaper ones on there, but then you have to mess with salt and ice. You just pop the bowl in the freezer for 24 hours, prepare your mixture and let it sit in the fridge until it is really cold, and then make your ice cream. One thing I didn't realize is that the ice cream is much softer than store bought. It will be super delicious, but if you want a harder consistency, you gotta leave it in the fridge overnight.

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

We make really good (vegan and usually raw) ice-cream in it. This Cuisinart one is what we use.

u/unconscionable · 3 pointsr/fitmeals

Yeah.. I know that ordinary ice cream essentially has to be stirred as it freezes (the machines are pretty cheap on amazon / ebay).. but I'm pretty sure that even then - without adding sugar & fat, it'll turn hard as a rock in the freezer, just as you say.

I suspect that if it's possible to create a stable, scoopable frozen yogurt without relying on sugar & fat, you need some sort of trickery to stabilize it.. perhaps xanthian gum, erythritol, and some other compounds?

u/snobord · 3 pointsr/AskCulinary

A Yonanas machine. We've had it for a couple months and I'm still amazed at how much the final result is like actual ice cream when it's nothing but frozen fruit.

u/HungryHungryHippy · 3 pointsr/whatisthisthing

Given the size and shape, maybe the top of an old, cheap ice cream maker?

u/Inanna7 · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I probably sound crazy, but I can't say enough good things about Yonanas

It makes great tasting ice cream in seconds using only fruit. No milk. No ice. No yogurt. You just freeze fruit and push it through. And you can add chocolate or peanut butter or whatever you can think of. Of course, everything has a mild banana flavor underneath, but it is worth a shot if you're trying to eat healthy.

Please downvote me to hell if you think I am way off track.

u/Ohthere530 · 3 pointsr/keto

I make it myself using this single serve ice cream freezer (amazon).

Here are the ingredients I use:

  • 3-4 oz liquid - combo cream, half-n-half, milk
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp xyla
  • Misc flavors: vanilla, cocoa ,berries, peppermint

    Yum!
u/deathmangos · 3 pointsr/ketorecipes

Get the Cuisinart. I got the earlier ICE-21 version and I'm very happy with it. BEWARE - the bowl works with a freezing gel that will get ruined if you heat up the bowl or even wash it with hot water. It won't freeze again afterwards. So always clean it with cold tap water and never leave it next to a heat source.

u/lilyfische · 3 pointsr/Cooking

I have a Cuisinart one in your price range. I like this better than the kitchen aid attachment. The KA attachment I had broke, but before it broke it was a bit of a hassle to pour the ice cream base into - you do it after it's on the stand with the mixer running. I made a mess every time. The Cuisinart one is cheaper than the KA attachment, is easy to use (less messy for me), and has frozen ice cream bases up nicely every time.

Here's a link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B003KYSLMW/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?qid=1462496127&sr=8-2&pi=SY200_QL40&keywords=cuisinart+ice+cream+maker&dpPl=1&dpID=41cIcGTIN2L&ref=plSrch

u/KLanceyJr · 3 pointsr/santashelpers

Just so there is another suggestion for those looking for hard to shop for fathers like I am. I think I'm going to go with this ice cream maker.

He definitely loves his ice cream, this adds a little bit of the experience to it. It's also definitely within my price range while still being able to afford some of the ingredients, toppings, maybe a cool custom bowl with his football team on it or something. Thanks for all the recommendations so far!

u/Taraxus · 3 pointsr/Cooking

I own a Cuisinart ICE-30BC and I have loved it. Freezer space can be an issue occasionally, and I've found that you can't make a true 2 quarts of ice cream without overflow, but I have been very happy with any ice cream I've made in it. Personally, my thought would be that either one will take up a significant amount of space, and so I would just go for the stand-alone unit.

u/akingrey · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Do pets count as kids? If so I would get myself this amazing ice cream maker that is ridiculously expensive. http://amzn.com/B00004RDF0

For my mom I would buy her an iPad so she can play all of her facebook games and whatnot. Also a trip to the Bahamas. She seriously deserves it, I miss her. It's so tough being thousands of miles away from her.

u/Sub_Salac · 2 pointsr/tea

Southeast Asian countries usually have a Chinatown , no? Where there is a Chinese community, there is loose leaf tea. :>

My favorite tea recipe is.... Ice Cream. An ice cream maker can be found between 20-40 dollars online and pays for itself after you make a few batches. Something like this:

https://www.amazon.com/Cuisinart-ICE-21-Quart-Frozen-Yogurt-Ice/dp/B003KYSLMW/ref=sr_1_5?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1518559169&sr=1-5&keywords=ice+cream+maker

I use the following ratio of ingredients:

6 egg yolks
1.5 cups of heavy cream/full fat cream
1.5 cups milk
(Or if you have something called Half and Half available you can just use 3 cups of that).
0.75 cup of Sugar
.25 teaspoon of salt

You first whisk the egg yolks and sugar until the yolk changes color and sugar is dissolved in the yolks. Then you bring the milk and cream to a low simmer(don't boil). While mixing the egg, very slowly add half of the hot milk to the egg and continuously mixing. Then put the egg+hot milk mixture back into the pan, at this stage add your salt(I add salt at the last possible moment so it doesn't break down any of the proteins in the egg/milk and cause curdling), and then constantly stir and be careful to scrape the bottom of the pan so it doesn't stick to the bottom and burn. The goal is to have a slightly thick texture, just like melted ice cream would be, not watery. You can know if you use a wooden spoon and it easily coats the back of the spoon and doesn't run, like this: https://usingmyhands.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/img_2056.jpg

You can add any flavor you want. As simple as vanilla extract, or in this case, with tea, you would add your tea leaves to the first step of simmering milk. I recommend using a lot of tea because the cold temperature of the ice cream will tone down the tea strength, you want to make a very strong tea extraction to get good flavor in the ice cream. Exact measurements for this are tricky because tea differs so greatly, but i'd say around 30-60g. Then it's just a matter of chilling the mixture, straining it, and putting into the maker.

u/robotsongs · 2 pointsr/ketorecipes

There's these, which we used to use when we were kids, but it doesn't work all that well and takes a ton of time.

I don't think you should get one just to do keto recipes. I think you should get one because you can use it forever, whether on keto or off, and they work pretty well. Really, they're not that expensive.

u/EffrumScufflegrit · 2 pointsr/metalgearsolid

Dude smoothies are the way to go! I got in waaaaay better shape when I started using them for meals. I hate a LOT of veggies and I found a green smoothie recipe (spinach, almonds, bananas, almond milk, chocolate protein powder) that let me get all my leafy greens in.

Also check out the Yonanas machine. It's kind of like smoothie ice cream, but it tastes amazing. It's like my favorite dessert now and it's healthy as hell for you. I've had it for dinner many times lol.

u/new2cc2014 · 2 pointsr/gifs

Not all that new, really, I have been doing it for a while. Then, a few years back, I even bought a Yonanas. Basically, it is the loudest machine in the world that will grind up your frozen bananas into "ice cream." Pretty tasty. Always freeze your bananas without the peel and when they're ripe. Hope you enjoy.

Edit: Added Yonanas link if you like gadgets http://www.amazon.com/Yonanas-902-Frozen-Treat-Silver/dp/B005083ECS I don't necessarily recommend it (I haven't used it again) but some people like it

u/jojewels92 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I have no idea what your budget is so I'm going to say we both need this. I saw you have a similar item on your list but I think this one is cuter (because it's teal. :P) This is the one you have which would also be cool. I'm not picky.

We obviously need this because Summer is coming and from where I am and the current weather is it going to be hot as hell. What better way to cool down than to make yummy, healthy ice cream.


ZOMG We need this!

u/cknap · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Gift One is an ice cream maker, which I can use during the summer to make yummy treats for friends and family.

Gift Two would be a kindle version of The Chaos Walking book trilogy. I've heard wonderful things about this series and have been looking forward to reading it. C'mon...gimme.

You both look wonderful today :)

Thanks for the super awesome contest! You guys are great!

Cuisinart ICE-30BC Pure Indulgence 2-Quart Automatic Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet, and Ice Cream Maker

Throw the ingredients and hit start. 10-20 minutes later ice cream.

Same quality they use for the bigger ones they use in restaurants.

u/ZootKoomie · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

I'm not sure I can give an authoritative response. I've just been using my Cuisinart ICE-20 for years and don't have experience with other brands to compare it to.

I am fairly happy with it, although, as I think I said elsewhere in this thread, it doesn't scrape down the sides of the bucket too well, so I have to stop the churn and manually do it to make the ice cream churn up correctly.

I think you'd have to upgrade from plastic to fully metal to solve that problem, but you're not going to see that outside the $200 machines.

If you're going to stick to the ~$50 range, check out how large a freezer your gift-recipient has and how full it usually is. They'll have to fit the churn bucket in there and they may not be able to manage a big 2-quart capacity one that otherwise would be a good choice.

I'm getting all the girls a customized water bottle with their names on it and I'm going to fill it with candy. I got each person a t-shirt from teeturtle that I thought they would like (I even bought myself one lol). I'm paying for the girls to get their makeup done with me as well. My brother is a bridesman and I have been thinking about getting him this. It looks like a lot of fun and he likes soccer.

Ok this in on the low end, but really the previos comment of Cuisinart is a good start.

http://www.amazon.com/DeLonghi-GM6000-Gelato-Self-Refrigerating-Compressor/dp/B002RT91FM

You really need to look at a budget of at least 300$, if not more for the unit. Also these things are large so hopefully you have somewhere to store it.

u/captainzoobydooby · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Yeah, I used to have a really hard time just getting rid of stuff. This is a pretty good way to learn to let things go, and to stop accumulating more and more and more. It can go beyond your closet too--- I buy kitchen gadgets like crazy, but I'm not buying any more unless it can replace two that I already have. It keeps my from buying stupid things like this: http://www.amazon.com/Yonanas-902-Frozen-Treat-Silver/dp/B005083ECS

The Cuisinart ICE-21 is a pretty good entry-level machine, if you don't have a Kitchenaid mixer (or if you have the wrong Kitchenaid model...). It's the same idea - keep the bowl in the freezer, take it out when you want to make ice cream. Just make sure your base is very cold for good consistency (otherwise it will freeze too slowly and get icy).

I make ice cream like every other week.

u/anbeav · 2 pointsr/keto

Yes. You don’t need salt or ice. It’s a water lined bucket that you freeze. It’s $44 on amazon but this is the model I have that I bought at bed, bath and beyond years ago

So I'm a big night snacker. No matter what I have for dinner I still want sweets. I am using intermittent fasting as a tool to save calories for things I really want. I can go pretty long all day without eating and without thinking about it. But then once I start eating... well I want to eat all the things.

There's a couple ways around this. First, you can log your ice cream first thing in the morning. Put it in there and plan on eating it. Maybe your other meals need to be smaller to make that happen. Maybe it is easier for you to skip breakfast and eat more later. Everyone is different. Maybe instead of getting a whole thing you can get portioned out ice cream sandwiches, popsicles, or frozen grapes.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005083ECS

This thing is seriously awesome. I freeze bananas and this turns it into ice cream. You can add other fruit in there too. Same texture and mouth feel. It's not going to be zero calories, but it's definitely better for you and less calories. It also takes a little bit more time/cleaning than just scooping out the ice cream, so that might stop you from going back for more.

And when you hit your calorie goal, brush your teeth. Drink mint tea. Clean up the kitchen and turn the lights out. I like having a little end of the day ritual when I'm done eating, and now when I brush my teeth, I don't even think about food.

If you can't stop yourself from eating after dinner, that's ok. But if you really want to lose weight, you'll have to take the calories from somewhere else, or decrease the calories you eat after dinner.

u/Ariel125 · 2 pointsr/xxketo

I fill up on beef during the day and dinner (it keeps me full much longer than cheese, chicken, pork rinds... anything else really), then EVERY night my husband and I make coconut ice cream in our ice cream maker. Honestly, this is what has made keto 300x easier and it's now a staple for us each night after dinner.

This makes 3-4 cups of ice cream for 225 calories TOTAL for each person (that's over a pint per person!). It fills up our cereal bowls... it's a ton of ice cream. We never skip a day without this.

2 cans lite coconut milk (we get ours from Giant)

Truvia to taste

optional: Walden Farms chocolate, caramel, etc. for flavoring


Throw everything into this puppy right here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003KYSLMW/ref=twister_B01H1T6HTK?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

In 20 minutes you will have 6-8 cups of ice cream. It's 225 calories per person!!!

Rinse out the frozen bucket in the machine (we don't even wash it with soap). Throw it back into the freezer for the next night. Done!

u/rabbithasacat · 2 pointsr/AskCulinary

peanutbutterbuttplug's advice is great, but if you still have problems with the emulsion, you may want to try an extract rather than an oil, as in vanilla extract, mint extract, or one of the many extracts commonly used in ice cream. They contain no oils and are commonly alcohol suspensions. I have no idea if this bubblegum extract is any good, I'm just linking to it to show that such a thing does exist. Adding oils to ice cream mix is problematic in general.

I agree that an ice cream maker is going to give you much better results. I have this one and it's wonderful. You do need to freeze the canister at least 24 hours ahead of time in the coldest part of your freezer, though, just a heads up.

I don't think you need to use all cream, either. You may want to experiment with ratios of milk to cream or at least lighter cream. My husband actually prefers it when I make it with only whole milk! You may not want to do that, but that's just to give you an idea of the range of possibilities.

they also have some pretty good vegan cheeses, I like their soy sauce it's very low in sodium, their olive oil is pretty cheap too been using it for years.

If you have the space & budget available, I'd recommend investing in an upright deep freezer (I have a monster 20cf model, although it's very energy efficient & uses less than $5/mo in electricity according to the energy star rating). Depending on how severe the allergies are, you might want to look into CSA farm-shares, buying grass-fed meat from a local farm, etc. Otherwise, it's also excellent to have for convenience & buying safe foods in bulk, especially if you get an Anova and/or Instant Pot & can prep freezable meals that are easy & fast to cook. I also make homemade ice cream using a freezer-bowl machine; currently $65 on Amazon:

The chocolate ice cream with half an avocado is actually really excellent! I still make that one, even though I can have dairy again. So like I said, it's not a death sentence anymore - lots of good tools, pre-packaged products, and recipes available for all kinds of allergies these days. You can also do stuff like sushi, wok-cooking (5-minute stir frys!), etc. Having allergies actually introduced me to a lot of cuisines I otherwise would have never tried.

It is so sweet of you to try do this for her!

With the coconut and nut allergy you’re going to have to make the ice cream. You’ll need a small ice cream maker. I have this one and it works well for small batches.

Cuisinart ICE-21 1.5 Quart Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream Maker (White) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003KYSLMW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_GDs4DbG40WRR3

You can make it out of any safe milk. Ripple milk is good, it’s made out of peas and it’s the closest to dairy milk. Just find instructions and substitute the safe milk for dairy milk.

It will probably take a few batches until you figure out one that tastes good.

After that, the candy shell. The recipes I have seen are all chocolate + coconut oil. You could try to substitute crisco, the organic vegan products like crisco, or even lard. Enjoy life makes allergy friendly dark chocolate chips you could use. I don’t know if any of these would work but you can try! If they don’t work you can always just have ice cream with chocolate sauce or chunks.

O.O this is so cool! If you're trying to fill an ice cream void, have you tried Yonanas? It mashes up frozen fruit to make soft-serve "ice cream!" Frozen bananas give it that smooth, creamy texture, and any other frozen fruit provides other flavors! It's really good, and it's actually healthy, which is really cool :)

u/cryospam · 2 pointsr/keto

So unfortunately this stuff kind of tastes kinda funky and the texture is awful. With keto you want a high fat low carb option for ice cream, which due to sugar alcohols Arctic Zero really isn't.

A better option for making your own ice cream would be to use a recipe like this.

1 pint Land O Lakes heavy cream (this stuff has 0 carbs, all the rest seem to have a smidge).

1/2 to 1 cup granular splenda (not the liquid kind, you need granular sweetener to help with texture) depending no how sweet you want it

1/4 teaspoon Xantham Gum

1/2 teaspoon Guar Gum

2 scoops of either IsoPure or of Nectar Protein for flavoring. Both of these offer a bunch of either 0 or next to 0 carb options.

Mix it in a blender just until you have added a little air in the heavy cream so it has the consistency of like pudding, but don't overdo it or you will turn it to butter...and frozen butter isn't delicious.

Then toss it into an ice cream maker. If you don't do a lot of ice cream, then get one of those ones that has the frozen bowl like THIS one, or if you're like me and the loss of ice cream made you super sad, then bite the bullet and upgrade to a unit with a compressor like THIS or if you want VERY nice one then something like THIS.

I use this ice cream for my Keto fat bombs, and it's amazing. You end up with something like THIS for your metrics, 0 carbs, 12 grams of protein and 40 grams of fat with 453 calories for a 1/2 cup serving.

Little Snowie makes a heavy duty Ice shaver that you can use with cubes, here. This will shave the ice, as opposed to chunking it like a snow cone.

You can get shave ice syrup at any Smart and Final.

Make sure you are super careful to clean it out and dry it. I can't tell you the terrifying things I have pulled out of ice machines when I was cleaning them. I don't always have a lot of confidence in infection control measures and you don't know that you can trust that the nurses will do it. They have enough to do as it is.

Cover them with plastic marked with an inside/outside when they are not being used. You are going to need to get food service sterilinzing rinse agent at S&F too, unless you are taking them to the cafeteria to clean them, You can use Dakin's solution as well, as long as it's rinsed immediately after.

Ice cream machine... Breville It has it's own compressor, so you don't need to mess with freezing an insert. And it's a Breville, so it's going to last a very long time. They are remarkably heavy duty.

You could find that using the prepared shakes, may not give you a good consistency, since they are all sort of different they may not freeze sufficiently. You may have to do some experimenting to find out what works best.

You can get one with a built in compressor, but more than anything, they are pretty huge. remembering to stick the container in the freezer a while before isn't such a big deal (you can even store it in there, if you like).

I use this Cuisinart 1 1/2 quart ice cream maker. It's the perfect size for meet-ups and not too expensive ($55 for the white one - but I feel like it has been cheaper). Plus there are a ton of color options (the red one is only $40!). You do have to refreeze the bowl between batches and several people have recommending buying a second bowl to reduce wait time but I just don't have that kind of space in my freezer.

I'll definitely have to do my due diligence about churn length for the first go around. I'll be doing a lot of due diligence about everything at that.

I'll pick up a water thermometer tomorrow! Thanks for the advice. I'd wondered what the go to was as I'd seen people pointing those laser thermometers at churning ice cream before and wondered if that was the preferred method. Seems excessive.

u/MattDamonStuntDouble · 1 pointr/design_critiques

Oh man, I'm looking at your maker and it is on sale from $300 to $150, and I'm pretty tempted to upgrade. The self-refrigerating is a huge selling point. I've been using this maker. The 2 quart size has been big enough, but I have to manually freeze the bucket for 24 hours between batches. By the time the batch is done churning, the bucket has thawed a bunch and the ice cream comes out a bit too soupy for immediate enjoyment.

You can make your own ice cream if you're ok with artificial sweeteners. Make an egg custard base, add whatever flavoring you like, cool it in the fridge, then toss it in an ice cream maker. Just replace the sugar with enough sweetener or sugar-free syrup that it tastes sweet to you.

I've only used a cheap Rival ice cream maker similar to this design. I've had it since the mid 90s and have never had any issues. I can't compare it to others and I'm sure it's not the best but it definitely does the job of making ice cream. I put the canister in the freezer about 30 minutes before I will need it so it can get cold. It only takes about this long for it to get as cold as it can.

It's not a complicated process and I think you could easily find yourself spending more than you need to if you're not careful. Also, as others have noted, do not substitute the fat source for a lower fat version. Your end product will suffer.

Our favorite recipe is for Chocolate Velvet Ice Cream. It makes 2-3 quarts:

• 1-1/3 cups white sugar

• 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

• 6 egg yolks, beaten

• 5-1/3 cups heavy cream

• 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

In large bowl, stir together sugar and cocoa. Add egg yolks and blend with electric mixer. Add cream a little at a time, beating well after each addition. Chill mixture in refrigerator.

While cream mixture is chilling, grate chocolate chips in food processor or a rotary grater, until fine. Stir into cream mixture. Freeze in canister of ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.

I picked up an ice cream maker awhile back, the Cusinart ICE-21 ($49 atm, when I got mine it was like $36 I think). Now I can have ice cream whenever I want, takes about 25-40 min to make and it's like 5 carbs or less per serving depending on how you make it. No laxative effects, cheaper than the rare-find store low-carb ones, and you can make whatever flavor/addins you want.

Turn it on, pour the recipe you threw together, check on it occasionally and stop when it's as thick as you like. No ice/salt hassle etc. and it's easy to clean.

I've not had the stuff the OP has had. But I do know that the Breyers Carb Smart and I see the Lucerne one, has sorbitol and it can cause a laxative effect...it did have that effect on me. It was creamy though, but do yourself a favor and make sure you use caution and limit the serving size, even the recommended 1/2 cup had my stomach making noises.

It's an absolute tank. Reliable, beautiful and gets the job done every time. Although a lot has to do with recipe and I have still to find a better ice cream base than the cremodan gelato based one I use now.

Get one with built in refrigeration if you end up using it much. You'll thank yourself later. My frist one was like that link and it was a major pain. You could do one batch per 24 hours and they didn't always come out great. I have this now, and it's insane. You can do back to back batches and even pour warm liquids in.

Four suggestions, none of them good:

  • bleach the dye with hydrogen peroxide

  • dye them a darker color

  • find OEM replacements for the dyed parts

  • buy one of these and never look back

Well you could buy an ice cream maker and make your own.....it's really just heavy cream and sugar, so you can easily sub out the sugar for 0 carb liquid sucralose.

For $50 you can get one of these and make it way easier on yourself. I have one and it works great. I also recommend the Ben and Jerry's recipe book. Best blueberry ice cream I've ever had.

This reminds me of the ice cream ball we took camping once. We tossed, kicked and rolled that thing around for a half hour to our intense boredom, only to be rewarded with soupy almost slightly frozen sweetened milk product.

Get yourself an ice cream maker and then make Kahlua Coffee ice cream in 2 hours with this uber simple recipe. Get tipsy and eat ice cream!

I absolutely love my ice cream maker. I got it for $40 at Costco and use it a few times a week. I particularly like making fruit sorbets...I get a different fresh variety at the farmers market every weekend, and I experiment with adding fresh herbs...my sage peach sorbet was to die for!

Bonus: This Ben and Jerrys ice cream cookbook is excellent!



u/IPickOnYou · 1 pointr/keto

I have one of these - but (disclosure) I actually got it refurb from woot.com* a few weeks back and without the extra bowl.

It's made easily 8 quarts so far (incl. some traditional mint choc chip for the rest of the family) and shows no signs of stopping. Also easy to clean.

I made it last week with my new ice cream maker, and it's absolutely divine. Just a heads-up that the recipe makes over 1.5 quarts of product. It was a little too much to fit entirely in my maker.

They probably exist. With that said, have you thought about a more traditional ice cream maker? They are MUCH smaller, simpler to use and are generally dishwasher safe.

In case you didn't already know, soft serve (prior to its ice cream form) is basically just a thick cream that gets poured into the machine. The machine then whips and churns it into the thicker soft serve ice cream you're familiar with. That said, I'm willing bet that even the smaller soft serve machines have a minimum capacity of a gallon or so. Do you intend on eating ALL of the ice cream each time you use the machine? Because if not, you need to empty/clean it out to avoid bacteria growth or milk spoilage.

If I were you, I'd look into something like THIS:
Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker - Amazon

u/Sendbeer · 1 pointr/Cooking

Can't help you with storage, but [this] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0009A0N4E/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_ziUACbNR3BFJ8) can be bought for $25. If you don't like it, just drop it off at a Goodwill. Making ice cream can be kind of fun, and if you stay away from those pre mixes and find a good recipe the ice cream can be a lot better than the stuff you get at the store. Don't count on saving money though, milk and cream tend to be more expensive (the shit you buy at store gets around this by pumping a lot of air into their mixture).

I took this tortoise pic about 10 years ago. It still makes me laugh. The little guy liked to hump the big tortoises and would open his mouth whenever his thingy came out 😂

One of the coolest things on my wishlist is this instant ice cream maker
You pour a thin layer of cream on this frozen try, it freezes instantly, then you scrap it off into these little rolls. How cool is that?!?

You freeze the container and take it out when ready. Pretty easy. I think my problem was that for the first time I froze it in my cheapo garage freezer which doesn't seem to get as cold as my kitchen freezer. That, with perhaps a lower freezing temp due to all the oils made it not set the same as standard ice cream recipes.

u/JohnnyRockets911 · 1 pointr/ketochow

Thank you! It looks like the closest I can find on Amazon is the ice-21. Must give this a try!

u/bleguini · 1 pointr/AskCulinary

My recipes doesn't include eggs. I use the recipes from The Art of Making Gelato. I use a Cuisinart ice cream maker but the biggest thing was finding the right container for freezing the gelato once it's done. I use this container and seems to keep the gelato from freezing too quickly so it stays more creamy and it's been the biggest difference maker for me.
edit: this is the ice cream maker I use.

u/Little_Nero · 1 pointr/Cooking

Freezing the mixing bowl and bucket won't make a difference on this type of mixer. The bowl is a very thin aluminum and the outer bucket is just thin plastic.

I am filling the mixing bowl halfway or less which is what I see recommended.

Thanks for the information. I am just trying to eliminate the problems some of the people are coming up with. I think it may have to do with the fact that I mixed it too much while bringing the mix up to temp. I pulled a lot of the fat out of the batter by vigorously mixing which hasn't happened before. I am not sure the mechanism for why it isn't freezing but I think that is looking like a possible culprit.

u/pinksalmonz · 1 pointr/keto

I threw all the ingredients into a 2 quart pot and used and egg beater to blend everything well. The pot was nearly full, so I had to be careful not to turn the beater on too high. I heated the mixture to an internal temperature of 160 while constantly stirring. You don't have to heat it but I did because I wanted the eggs to yield as much protein as possible and I've heard raw eggs aren't as nutritious.

Then I cooled the mixture in the freezer for 1 hour, and then the fridge for another 2 hours.

Then I put the mixture in this [ice cream maker] (https://www.amazon.com/Cuisinart-ICE-30BC-Indulgence-2-Quart-Automatic/dp/B0006ONQOC/ref=sr_1_4?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1499459180&sr=1-4&keywords=ice+cream+maker), and it was ready to eat in 30 minutes.

Thanks for making amazing ice cream!

u/entropic · 1 pointr/soylent

Thanks for this info! I really appreciate the huge quantity of notes and observations you put on that recipe, /u/kennufs, it's also been very influential to me.

I can definitely see the high protein throwing off the ice cream, both texture and flavor. I'd be trying mine in an ice cream maker, the countertop kind with the frozen bowl, like this one: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0041A3KPC/ref=psdc_289924_t1_B0006ONQOC and I will let you know how it goes!

u/rachelrad · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Awh, that sounds like a good night, at least. I mean, at least you weren't stressed out or running around and you were able to relax together, albeit doing different things. My boyfriend and I usually have our respective Me time as we mostly stay in and hangout with each other. We're both pretty broke right now, too, so until I get a job we won't be doing too much of anything. I LOVE to bake, and he loves to eat my baked goods, so I would definitely want to bake something for him! Perhaps some tasty mini filled cakes that are root beer float themed-root beer flavored cakes with a creamy vanilla filling. (He has requested that flavor combination to be included in one of my next creations.) Or I could make some mini ice cream sandwiches! Ahhh they're SO cute! These ones are adorable, too! Vanilla cookies with orange cream ice cream, because we just found a half pint ice cream maker at the thrift store (still in the box sealed, $7!!) and I want to use it for something adorable. Of course, if I were baking I would need an oven mitt so I didn't burn myself =P My favorite mitt got a hole right between the thumb and the rest of the mitt. Fail. Let's be honest, this freaking mixer would make my LIFE, not just my night, but that will just have to wait until I win the lottery or something. ;P

After baking, we could both lounge around and I would make some cool crafts. I have been wanting to make coasters using these dyes and/or these dyes or these ones and alcohol on some ceramic tiles. Look! How freaking awesome, right?! Cool times. (How old are your kiddos? These would be SO much fun to make with kids!! Have them sign their names in sharpies with the date!) Plus then our wood coffee table won't be ruined. So, you know, that would be good. While I'm crafting he would certainly be playing some video games. He has been lusting over Dead Space 3 FOREVER. (So, if I happen to win and it is within the budget, that is the top item for me, because I know how happy he would be to have it and I can't afford to get it for him right meow.)

While waiting for the crafts to dry I would play with my kitties. This toy is awesome looking. Once the kitties were all tuckered out, I would seal the tiles and then I would absolutely want to paint my nails. Boyfriend would still be playing video games so I would sit next to him on the couch and paint nails and watch him own. He's so good at shooting games, I love watching him play! I'm sure he would be eating some of the fresh bakery, too =) I would paint them this most amazing green color EVAR with some glitter on top. Then, because I don't know when to stop with anything having to do with my nails, would add these super freaking cool studs to them!

After all that I would be pretty tired, so I would just lounge around on the couch waiting for my nails to dry while he inevitably still played his game. lol. Yes, this would be perfect me time and him time and us time and just a perfect night in! This is a really cool contest idea! <3

I own the Cuisinart ice cream maker. It makes about 1 quart at a time and works quickly. Freeze the bowl for 24 hours, pop in the ice cream maker, pour in your ingredients and let be for 20 mins. Makes great ice cream, is not as loud as other machines (although don't expect it to be whisper quiet). They sell extra bowls so you can make more than one patient a meal each day.

I'd also like to thank you for your work with dementia patients. My grandmother recently passed away from Alzheimers and I really wish she had such great care as you are providing.

I bought a Cuisinart [ice cream maker] (http://www.amazon.com/Cuisinart-ICE-21-Frozen-Yogurt-Ice-Sorbet/dp/B003KYSLMW) a month or so ago. A couple scoops of Casein and a couple cups of milk will make almost a quart of soft serve ice cream.

I've been tweaking the recipe to get the best taste, so far this is my best mix:

  • 2 scoops chocolate Casein (I use Allmax Casein FX)
  • 1/2 scoop unflavored whey (comes out smoother than just plain Casein)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cacao
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 tsp guar gum (thickens and reduces ice crystals, but not critical).

    Changing up the dairy source (or using a milk substitute) can tailor macros to whatever you need. Coconut milk is particularly good for rest days, and if you use half and half you can let it freeze to hard ice cream. (Low fat milks are best eaten within 1-2 hours of freezer time otherwise they get too icy and hard).

    There's something pretty awesome about eating four bowls of ice cream... can make any day feel like a cheat day.

The biggie that I want on my WL is a guitalele - half guitar, half ukulele. I'm learning to play uke and my mom got me a workable starter ukulele, but I played around on this one in a local music shop and fell in love. My hands aren't suited for playing a normal guitar, even a 3/4 size one. I love piano, but there are some songs in my head that just don't work for it.

Little ones are a tea kettle (my microwave crapped out last year, and boiling water in a pot on the stove is a pain in the ass) and an ice cream maker (food allergies make me miss my favorite food, and non-dairy non-artificial coloring ice cream doesn't come cheap)

u/FatZombieMama · 1 pointr/xxfitness

Sorbet! We make it a few times a week. Blend up a bunch of fruit with a little lemon juice, pop it in the ice cream maker (AWESOME investment), and in 15 minutes you have a delicious sorbet. You can use berries for clean eating, or pick higher sugar fruits if you want.. it IS still fruit, and the best part is you're still getting all the fiber.

Lately we've made strawberry, peach, blueberry, raspberry, and mango. My favorite was the blueberry but they were all delicious. We also made that banana coconut milk version of ice cream and it was creamy and good, but a little higher calorie for my preferences.

Since I'm a budget shopper, and had never owned an ice-cream machine before, I went and looked up all the different types. This one will make pretty much all you need it to (portion wise) and gets the job done just as good as any of the others I've seen on Amazon. If you're not going to be making ice cream all the time, it's relatively small, too, so you can put it away easily and store it.

I used this machine: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006UKLUFS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I did not pre-chill it, but it got cold pretty fast.
After churning it definitely increased in volume, but I don't think anywhere near double
I think I'd mostly describe it as soft serve consistency, maybe with a bit near the outside almost completely frozen.
