Every once in a while I like to highlight one of my favorite kitchen gadgets. Ones that make eating delicious, healthy food also QUICK & EASY! This is it. The Rival 1 1/2 quart Treat Shoppe Electric Ice Cream Maker. There are other brands of the same concept of course. I just totally scored with this one because I got it at a yard sale for $2 and it has run perfectly for 4 years already. Here is how it works: You store the base in the freezer (Make sure you have some extra freezer space before you buy this because it takes up a fair amount of room). When you are ready to make some ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, etc you simply take the base out of the freezer, pour the mixture inside, attach the paddle and lid, and plug it in! In 20 minutes or so, you have perfectly frozen yumminess! This requires no dry ice, so salt, etc. After you eat your treat, clean the base and put it back into the freezer so that it is ready for the next time. Frozen treats bought at the store usually have a crazy mix of additives, not to mention lots of sugar. Now you can be armed with the tool to create your own healthy versions. I will be posting some recipe ideas for HEALTHY frozen treats that you can make in this. Stay tuned for my favorite Tart Frozen Yogurt with Summer Berries recipe in time for the 4th of July!
