Ice cream makers have come a long way since the old days of the hand crank models.  These days, you can get an electric model (like the one from Cuisinart pictured left) which takes all of the hard work out of making ice cream.  It contains an electric motor which removes the need to crank the thing by hand.

What I really like about this gadgets is that you can make ice cream from whatever ingredients you like.  There are some pretty amazing recipes out there.  Have you ever tried peanut butter ice cream?  What about prune ice cream?

But What About The Children?

That's right - this is meant to be for the kids.  Well if your children are anything like mine, they love their ice cream.  But as a responsible parent I worry about how healthy their diet is and I'm concerned about the high levels of sugar in commercial ice creams (not to mention those other ingredients listed on the label which I can't even pronounce). 

This is where an ice cream maker comes in handy.  You can use all-natural ingredients in the mixture and I'm sure that if you use your imagination, you'll be able to come up with all sorts of natural sweeteners to add to the mix.
