I'm not sure. I had an electric ice cream maker once but it was too much work cleaning it, freezing it, etc. that I sold it at a yard sale. I like this recipe because you can make it in minutes and it was really good. Has more of an Italian ice consistency, but very tasty. I liked it with the pudding better than with the jello and it is a little more creamier.

Eat smart. Live well.

I like that one, Rox! I wonder if I could put it in my little hand crank ice cream maker? It's real small and has container you freeze instead of salt and ice. I think it's a Donvier. I'm going to try it this week.

Here's a great low cal frozen treat.

1 cup skim milk (you can use whole if you want)
1 tsp vanilla
1 packet sugar substitute
1/4 box of SF chocolate pudding or SF jello

Pour all of the above in a zip lock bag. Seal it and shake.

Put 4 cups of ice cubes and 1/4 cup of kosher salt in a gallon size bag. Put the smaller bag mixture into the gallon bag and seal the gallon bag. Shake for 6-7 minutes and voila! You have soft serve ice cream. The consistency is more like Italian ice but yummy. You can also put it in the freezer for 30-60 minutes and it will get a little harder.

Eat smart. Live well.

You're coffee bar is a great idea, and looks inviting sitting on your counter! An excellent idea. Hubby and I went through a coffee thing about 2 years ago. We got a grinder and started buying different whole beans so we could grind and mix our own blends. You can freeze the leftovers in ice cube trays to add to smoothies, or make frozen coffees. Yum! That was fun, but then we stopped. We go through spurts of trying stuff out. Different teas during the winter. Right now I'm looking for healthy snowball flavor alternatives. Not the sugar free ready made stuff you can buy, (tastes yuck!) but I'm thinking of making juice concentrates and trying them.

Enjoy sampling your coffees!

Many of us love to cook, we LOVE the kitchen..have any of you tried putting these energies into something new!
I decided to make a coffee bar...A fun, variety laden coffee bar. It has been so much fun. I have searched for stores stocking things I might love, Chocolate, Coconut, Macademia Nut...it is wonderful what is out there, I find buys at Wal Mart, TJMAXX, Ross, good prices on fancy coffees! Anyone else tried this? (See pic on my Profile Page! emoticon emoticon

READY SET GO!!!
