Mango sorbet in a frozen mango shell. This is not something that you can easily find at your favorite ice cream shop, but it is something that you could easily make at home with your own automatic sorbet / ice cream maker.
I have wonderful memories of making homemade vanilla ice cream at Girl Scout resident camp. There is nothing like homemade ice cream or sorbet. But why do it once a year? With today’s automated ice cream makers, there is no reason not to do it year-round at home.
But from a healthy lifestyle perspective, making your own ice cream means you can substitute healthier ingredients so you can truly have your cake and eat it too.
The Cuisinart ICE-30BC Pure Indulgence 2-Quart Automatic Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet, and Ice Cream Maker is one model that was recommended in a recent Wall Street Journal article about gifts to give to promote staying at home and enjoying family more.
Although a good vanilla ice cream is hard to beat, my favorite ice cream flavor this year is cinnamon. Give it a try.
