Ice cream is a necessary part to having fun during the summer months. When it is hot and sweltering outside you have the satisfaction of knowing that you can come inside where it is cool and indulge yourself with some ice cream. Instead of purchasing store bought ice cream that is full of sugar and fat why not make your own.
Or you can switch things up and make your own sorbet. Sorbet is much tastier than ice cream and is for the people who enjoy the fruity flavor more than the chocolate and vanilla flavors of regular ice cream. When you make your own you can choose the types of fruit that you want to use and even substitute the sugar for something healthier – like Splenda.
You can purchase a sorbet maker at most home stores and also at places like Wal-Mart. There are many different brands and models to choose from – but we feel that the Cuisinart Sorbet Maker is one of the best. They are well known for their ice cream makers and provide you with a small or large model in order to make enough for the number of people that you have in your family.
One of the best things about these makers is that they provide you with all of the tools that you need and it only takes twenty to thirty minutes to make each batch. It is simple to use and even the children can learn to help you and can choose the flavors they love the most. Also the clean up afterwards is simple and easy. Just make sure that you follow the directions carefully so as not to break anything. This machine usually costs between $70 to $170. This summer enjoy homemade sorbet that tastes great and is much better than anything you have ever had.
