The rotating dessert paddle did all of the work to rapidly rework the strong block right into a thick, creamy ice cream.
Whereas the machine is kind of loud when it is on, it’s just for a brief time frame. I used to be surprised when the cycle was full – it took lower than 5 minutes to do.
When my ice cream was prepared, I made a decision so as to add some crushed Lotus biscuits to combine in and add a little bit of crunch earlier than popping it again into the machine and urgent the Combine-in button, which distributed the biscuit evenly all through my dessert.
I’ve eaten loads of ice cream in my 24 years, and this was by far the perfect. It was the right consistency, texture and flavour, and it’s made me so excited to get within the kitchen and experiment with extra flavours.
