Ice Cream Machine For Healthy Eating

April 11, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 198

Not only kids, even adults love having ice cream after every meal. Preparing the desert at home with the help of an ice cream machine is a better option than going out every time to have the desert. A domestic ice cream maker is also known as an ice cream freezer. The machine is used to prepare small quantities of ice cream at home.

An ice cream machine usually consists of a long cylindrical metal tube. This metal tube serves as a freezing chamber. Further, the machine uses agitating mixer blades to mix cream, sugar, milk and flavorings. The machine primarily consists of three main parts, including an external drum, a central churn and a refrigeration chamber. The external drum of the machine is opened to place the canister containing the mixture inside it. The mixture is stirred with the help of a central churn. The canister containing the mixture remains stationary, while the churning equipment rotates to churn the mixture properly. The churned mixture is cooled and chilled to turn into smooth and creamy sweet dish. The mixture inside the machine is stirred by hand-cranking or with the help of an electric motor. Further, the machine freezes the mixture and simultaneously churns it to prevent the accumulation of ice crystals.

Most of the deserts produced by these machines are ready to eat immediately. Deserts containing alcohol must be further cooled inside a freezer to achieve the desired firmness and consistency. You may store the mixture inside the freezer for an extra four to five hours. These machines can be also used to prepare frozen yoghurt, frozen beverages, sorbets, custards, Italian gelatos and slush drinks.

The machines can be primarily classified as manual machines and electric machines. The manual equipment consists of a small inner bowl, a large outer bowl and a dasher. The mixture is stirred manually with the help of the dasher. This type of machine is comparatively inexpensive than an electric equipment. The electric devices feature an electric motor. The bowl or the paddle is rotated by the motor to stir the mixture.

Preparing deserts at home with the help of an ice cream machine has several benefits. Home made sweet dishes are much healthier and tastier than the processed deserts. You can add fruits and low-fat ingredients. Further, you may use artificial sweeteners instead of sugar. Also, the sweet dishes prepared at home is fresh and free from chemicals and preservatives. So, if you are interested in healthy eating, an ice cream machine is a best option for you.
