Fan Friday #12 – Ice Cream Maker Edition

There are few things in life I love more than ice cream. Becoming a vegan, I had to switch to coconut ice cream (because soy ice cream taste weird), which comes in tiny little Haagen Dazs sized containers, for $7 each. Obviously, not the most economical option. Enter, the ice cream maker!

Fan Friday Presents…The Ice Cream Maker!

As a wedding present, we received a fantastic ice cream maker from my lovely mother-in-law. We loved it so much that we even made time a few days before the wedding to make some ice cream. This first batch (pictured below) was called Banana Split, from the delicious book Vegan a la Mode (go check Hanna out over at Bitter Sweet Blog, where she’s constantly sharing new recipes!).


Look at it! It looks delicious already!

Prior to this electric beauty, the Cuisinart ICE-30BC, all I had ever used was the manual kind. You know, where you churn it yourself? Yeah, you can imagine how much that got used (read: once).

The second batch we made was some delicious Dark Chocolate Sorbetto — a recipe that came with the ice cream maker. It has 4 ingredients. 4! Which is really part of what makes homemade ice cream so awesome: there’s no crazy preservatives in there. Between that and the fact that I can have large batches of whatever flavour of ice cream I want…well, it’s really a no brainer.

What’s your favourite slightly-indulgent but endlessly awesome kitchen tool?

  1. I wish we had an ice cream maker! My favorite right now has got to be the microwave. 🙂

  2. I second that Dark Chocolate Sorbetto recipe! Hannah rocks!
