We made ice cream! Also, because ZOKU makes it so easy. MissRaylyn volunteered to taste test. She loved it, we all did. I purchased mine from Williams-Sonoma.
They also have popsicle and milk shake makers too.
You freeze the inside metal container overnight. Pour in 5 ounces of your ice cream recipe and start scraping. A child really needs to be about 7 or 8 to have the strength to scrape the sides. But my Grands had fun swirling the wisk in the milk and cream, as I added the sugar and vanilla flavoring.
You use the little plastic paddle to swirl and scrape the ice cream mix. In about 5-7 minutes you have fresh homemade soft serve ice cream. One Zoku recipe fills two containers. Each container can fill two small ice cream dishes.
We have used a vanilla flavored base and added our choice of strawberries, sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, caramel, pecans and even some Starbucks Macchiato. There has never been any leftovers!
We highly recommend this fun yummy family activity.
