The wonderful people at KitchenAid sent me a Ice Cream Attachment for my beloved KitchenAid Stand Mixer to review and I fell in love. You see, before this I had one of those big old ice cream makers where you had to have ice and salt and it was a mess. Henceforth why I used it a whopping ONE time in 2 1/2 years. To much work. I had been drooling and coveting this little Ice Cream Attachment for a while and I might have even snuck it into my dreams that’s how bad I wanted it. And then I was blessed. Although my hips might disagree with that.
Let’s just say that in the three weeks we have had this beauty there have been three batches of ice cream made. My hubby BEGS for it and it’s so easy to make I agree. It’s easier that cookies peeps!
The bowl has a liquid built right in for you so no hassle with those messy ice cubes. You just need to make sure that bowl is frozen when you go to make the ice cream. Oh no you think I plan ahead? Heck no. I just keep that baby in the freezer all the time. You never know when you might NEED it. Yes NEED. Sometimes life is like that.
So then I just prepare my ice cream ingredients according to the recipe and then grab my bowl right out of the freezer and pop it into the base of my KitchenAid stand mixer. Attach the paddle, turn it on and pour in the ingredients. Ok, did you read that? Attach the paddle FIRST, then turn it on, and then pour in the ingredients. Now if you don’t do it like this you will have a mess. Not that I, of course, had that happen. Just trust me on this.
So then just let it stir for about 15 minutes or until you hear it clicking, take it out and it’s at a soft serve stage. The hubs loves this and eats it like this, but you can also stick in the freezer and let it set up a bit more. Whatever floats your boat!
Now I know you want to run out and buy that attachment right? Of course you do! It’s summer, you are dieing from the heat and ice cream obviously fixes all your problems in the world. Duh.
