Zoku Ice Cream Maker Review
“Make individual portions of ice cream, custard, frozen yogurt, gelato, sorbet, or sherbet in as little as 10 minutes with the Zoku Ice Cream Maker! Whether you prefer classic flavors like vanilla bean, mint chocolate chip, fresh strawberry, or dark fudge, or you like to create your own flavors, fresh ice cream can now be a spur-of-the-moment decision. Top your creation with fruit, candy pieces, nuts, or brownie chunks, and for a classic flourish, add a bright red cherry on top.”
1. Freeze inner bowl for 12+ hours
2. Pour in 5 fl. oz. of chilled ice cream mix
3. Stir, scrape, and add toppings once the ice cream begins to form
4. Use silicone edge of bowl to clean spoon while making ice cream
5. For hard ice cream put unit back in freezer for 10-20 additional minutes after soft serve has formed
This ice cream maker is extremely versatile. You have to ability to know each ingredient you put into your ice cream. No need to worry about odd fillers and preservatives. I like knowing what I am putting in my families bellies. With Zoku, I can rest assured knowing they are being filled with yummy goodness without all the GMO’s and unpronounceable words in some of those name brand ice creams at the grocer.
The only downside to this product is its size. While a single serving is great for a quick yummy treat, when you have a family of 4 it doesn’t make enough for the while family to enjoy. I would like to see them come out with a larger version so that you can ensure that the whole family gets to experience the joy of home made instant ice cream.
How to make Strawberry Ice Cream in a Zoku Ice Cream Maker
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup milk
- 1 1/2 cups strawberry
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Blend and pour into Zoku Ice Cream Maker
I let mine sit in the freezer for 5 minutes. Took it out and scraped the frozen parts away from the sides. This allows the center mixture to now touch the cup and begin to freeze. Placed back into freezer for 5 more minutes. Then did the side scrapping again. I ate dinner and when I went back it was the exact thickness I prefer. You can let it sit longer for harder ice cream and eat sooner for more creamy ice cream.
