We all love ice cream, sometimes to the point where we realize we need to do some exercise. Well the Ice Cream Ball has us covered. We can get our exercise while we make our ice cream so we don’t feel so guilty about eating it. The Ice Cream Ball works on basic principles and doesn’t require any electricity; just some movement to allow the rock salt to melt the ice in-turn freezing the ice cream. So shake it, roll it and get it moving so you can enjoy that ice cream.
For those of you not familiar with making home made ice cream, don’t worry about that rock salt. It doesn’t actually mix with the ice cream. The salt is used to melt the ice but at the same time keeping the core temperature cold enough to freeze the ice cream ingredients that are protected in the inner chamber. So shake away and enjoy all your favorite flavors.

The recipes included with the Ice Cream Ball suggest 473ml (1 US pint) “half and half” cream mix. Any kind of cream or milk mix will work, but thinner mixtures take longer to freeze. Using all double cream will result in a richer and creamier ice cream yield, if you’re making a low fat ice cream, adjust the recipe accordingly.
Included recipes recommend “1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar”, which in English means about 7 and a half tablespoons. An equivalent amount of sugar-substitute is also acceptable.
Whatever you like! For the classic vanilla just add 1 ½ teaspoons of vanilla to the mixture. We like to add all sorts of extra stuff to our ice cream often using vanilla as a base.
