Have you ever wanted to make ice cream, but you thought it was going to be so difficult to do, so you put it on “your list” to do “one day!”
For those who have been following my blog would know this Maxkon Rectangular Food Dehydrator with Time LCD White “graciously” sent to me via CrazySales.com.au “as a courtesy” as part of their Small Kitchen Appliances Range.
You can read more about it via What About This Food Dehydrator Has Your Curiosity Today?
What a great small kitchen appliance and I hear that people loved the CrazySales.com.au prices, customer service and prompt delivery letting people know the status of their order every step of the way!
I am “humbled and proud” to promote such a company who knows how to demonstrate “quality customer service” to the buyers; many become repeat customers!
Hands up, who would like to have a “healthy, delicious, summer treat” knowing what ingredients are used, that are delicious for all the family?
I bet you would gain some new “ice cream, gelato and yogurt friends” too!
What’s all the fuss about?
Let’s get to my review!
So was a good way to start!
What are the highlights?
I don’t know if you are like me, but I “thought” I had to spend a lot on an ice cream machine for it to be quality!
This Maxkon 1.45 litre Ice Cream Maker is currently for sale at a Crazy Price of $34.95 and on the link, you can easily and quickly calculate delivery & handling costs which are “more than economical.”
Let’s look at some of the features, eh?
I liked it did not have many complicated buttons, bells, whistles to push, time, calculate etc.
I am a very simple person when it comes to using small kitchen appliances for the first time!
Automatic one-button operation gets my tick of approval!
With the Non-stick Aluminum Lining, it made cleaning “easy peasy” (Aussie lingo for very easy) as can be and you CAN quote me!
Let’s get onto the recipe, eh?
For those who have been following my blog for a while, know I ABSOLUTELY love cherries!
I sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo look forward to cherry season (which has recently begun in Australia) and it is always sad when the last cherry is consumed for the season!
The only thing constant in life is change and as one season ends, another begins and so on!
What I really enjoyed about making my very first ice cream maker ice cream is I could use ingredients I had on hand, minimizing food wastage.
People who also have been following my blog will know I exclusively use Naturally Sweet Products Xylitol for cooking and baking and am A LOT happier and healthier as a result of limiting sugar in my food lifestyle!
- 250 grams cherries, pitted
- 100 grams Naturally Sweet Products Xylitol (see Notes)
- 100 grams cooking cream or thickened cream
- 1½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- roasted nuts, ground for topping (optional but recommended)
- mint leaves (optional for garnish)
- In a stand up mini chopper, grind cherries until smooth; set aside.
- Combine cherries, xylitol (or sugar), cream and lemon juice.
- Pour into Maxkon Ice Cream Machine through shoot with blades on.
- Run for approximately 30 minutes.
- Remove freezer bowl; cover with plastic wrap and place in freezer overnight.
- Remove, scoop, cover with nuts and enjoy! (see Notes)
recipe is "as a guide" and feel free to substitute with ingredients you have on hand
I honestly could not find any fault in using this Maxkon 1.45 litre Ice Cream Maker
for the first time and even Chef Georgio and friends gave Joanna’s Cherry Ice Cream Using Xyltiol two thumbs up!
A GREAT ice cream recipe success which gives me more confidence to explore more “different, unusual and quirky” (just like me) ice cream, gelato and sorbet recipes!
“A quality product, add the great price and customer service, I would recommend the Maxkon 1.45 litre Ice Cream Maker “
This review is my own own thoughts, experience and results and have not been influenced in any way because this Maxkon 1.45 litre Ice Cream Maker
by CrazySales.com.au has been “graciously” sent my way “as a courtesy!”
