Stop chasing after that ice cream van and treat yourself to this delicious frozen treat that can be prepared quickly in minutes. Homemade ice cream is a more nutritious, creative and cost-effective option that the whole family can enjoy.

A Summer Treat

At the height of summer heat and humidity, nothing beats a refreshing bowl of homemade ice cream to refresh and rejuvenate. Plus, homemade ice cream makes an exciting family project, providing ample opportunity for everyone to participate and devour sweet summer fruits like strawberries, bananas, mango and peaches!

No matter what your taste may be – creamy vanilla, rich chocolate or something fruity and tropical – there are recipes available for every occasion – some so easy that even young children can help make them.

Add extra ingredients into the processing cycle for an unforgettable dessert experience by running a mix-in function (if available). It evenly disperses them throughout your ice cream to add delicious bursts of flavour and texture in every bite – simply pour your favourite sweets, biscuit pieces or cereals and run this program to transform them into delectable frozen dessert.

Ninja NC300UK Ice Cream & Dessert Maker

Ninja CREAMi has become an immense social media hit, thanks to its innovative pre-freezing method that transforms ingredients into delicious frozen desserts that rival those found at traditional ice cream parlours. Working differently than other models, the CREAMi pre-freezes your base for 24 hours before using its creamify technology to turn it into soft and smooth desserts – great if you’re trying to reduce fat intake as well as vegan diets!

It features seven preset programmes, such as ice cream, gelato, sorbet, smoothie bowl, light ice cream and milkshake to help you craft delicious treats every time. Furthermore, its mix-in function lets you add chocolate chips, sweets, biscuit pieces or cereal for a completely customised dessert experience.

This home ice cream maker includes an outer bowl and lid, one paddle and three BPA-free tubs with lids – everything needed to produce up to 1.4L of delicious homemade ice cream! All removable parts are top rack dishwasher-safe making cleanup much simpler than with other self-freezing ice cream machines available on the market.

Cuisinart ICE100BCU Ice Cream Maker

If you’re looking for a more professional and robust ice cream maker, the Cuisinart ICE100BCU may be well worth your consideration. This machine can produce up to one litre of frozen dessert in approximately 45 minutes and comes complete with an instruction book as well as two paddles which can switch seamlessly between ice cream, gelato, and frozen yoghurt production.

Simple use – Simply combine your ingredients (ideally overnight in the refrigerator), pour them into the removable container, switch on and set your timer – the machine will begin making its ice cream until its automatic shut-off occurs and you can then scoop into an ice cream tub to store in your freezer!

As your ice cream churns, adding any fixings through the lid is an effective way to add extra texture or flavour. Cleaning is straightforward as all parts – bowl, paddle and lid – are dishwasher-safe.

KitchenAid 5KSMICM Ice Cream Maker Bowl

KitchenAid stand mixer owners who want to churn their own delicious and creamy frozen desserts can take advantage of this versatile attachment by pre-freezing an ice cream maker bowl, adding a dasher (plastic paddle for churning) and attaching the dasher drive assembly (which also connects it to your mixer).

This ice cream making bowl from KitchenAid feels sturdy and well made, similar to that of its stand mixer design. It is larger than previous iterations of this brand’s offerings with double walls designed to help keep ice cream cold for longer. Please be aware that placing the bowl into the freezer a minimum of 16 hours beforehand is necessary to achieve desired results.

Ice cream making bowls are safe for use in both dishwashers and hand washers, though we advise hand-washing to protect the inner bowl.

So there we have it – 3 super choices for you to craft your own ice cream at home this summer!
