This week it’s all about sweet treats! My husband has been eyeing a soft serve ice cream maker for several years now and he finally decided to snatch it up on Amazon for a great deal. We have a regular Cuisinart ice cream maker that we like but he loves soft serve and we thought it would be fun to have, especially now that we have kiddos:)
I whipped up the basic vanilla ice cream base while the kids were napping and put it in the fridge to chill. All I did was mix together milk, vanilla, sugar, and heavy cream. So simple!
I played outside with Will and Harper (and our neighbors-we invited them for ice cream!) while my husband put together the ice cream maker. It has three cool dispensers where you can add mix-ins like m&ms or other small pieces of candy. We didn’t try that out since we just wanted to see how well it made soft serve ice cream. Next time though, we plan on using the mix-in feature to swirl in some candy!
This was the only pic of Will that I got-he ate his ice cream fast and went back to playing! Miss Harper, on the other hand, is a very S-L-O-W eater (not complaining though!), so I was able to capture a few more pics of her enjoying our homemade soft serve:)
