This is the ice cream machine I use. I bought it at Aldi’s for $20.00 last year. I tried making ice cream and wasn’t to impressed with it. I couldn’t find a low sat-fat, low carb recipe that I liked. I tried making ice cream with tofu and I didn’t make any ice cream for a long time.
About a month ago I joined Fast Track to Fat Loss. It’s a website for people who want to lose weight. You can join for free. They call it the silver membership. They have a gold membership but it’s too expensive for me. Anyway they have a product called Protein Freeze. It’s just a protein powder mix. They make all kinds of things with it. They mix it with water and peanut butter in a blender and freeze it. It’s supposed to be like ice cream.
I found this recipe makes very good ice cream. It tastes a lot like peanut butter ice cream. I like it a lot. Will probley make this instead of the Greek yogurt one. The peanut butter does something to the ice cream. It gives it the ice cream texture somehow. I use the EAS 100% Whey protein powder shake mix. It cost a lot less then the Protein Freeze they use. They want $35.00 for a 3 lb container. I buy 5 lbs for $28,00 at Bjs. There protein mix has twice as much carbs in it also. I don’t recommend you buy the Protein Freeze. I figure you can use any brand. It’s the peanut butter than makes it come out so good.
The only problems with the ice cream maker is that I make 3 serving and have little cups I put it in and put them in the freezer. I found that they freeze up pretty good. But if you take them out of the freezer 30 minutes before eating they soften up real good.
Another problem with the machine is that about half of a serving sticks to the side of the machine. After making the ice cream, I store 2 serving in the freezer and eat one serving out of the machine. Have to wait for about an hour or so for the ice cream to melt long enough to finish.
The machine is otherwise very easy to use. You just freeze the bowl. Take it out of the freezer and assemble the machine, turn on and pour the ingredients into it. Very easy to use. No ice or salt. I just bought a second one. Recommend it highly.
