Easy homemade ice cream coming at ya! 🍨

It probably goes without saying that almost everyone loves ice cream, but something about the homemade version of the frozen dessert really gives us something to shout about! I’m sharing everything you need to know about this Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and why you totally need one to spice up dessert at home!

I’m pretty in love with the fact I can have ice cream literally whenever I want thanks to this ice cream maker. Best of all, I actually know what’s going inside my family’s ice cream so I no longer have to worry about all the store-bought options – perfect for those living a specific dietary lifestyle.

The thought of making homemade ice cream can seem a little daunting (even to a recipe blogger like myself) but I promise you with this awesome small appliance, it’s actually a cinch to make!

In fact, you can score a deal on it right now:

Cuisinart ICE-70 Electronic Ice Cream Maker
Only $139.95 (regularly $250)

Inside this ice cream maker, you can fit up to 2-quarts of delicious, homemade goodness! Plus, I love that the box even included a packet of recipes to help get you started! 😍

You’ve also probably already noticed there are 3 different functions on the outside, which means you can make a variety of treats from gelato to sorbet and, of course, ice cream! Best of all, each one is set at the perfect speed so you’ll get the best results possible.

Ben and Jerry’s ain’t got nothing on you now! 😉

Now, as I already mentioned above, this machine makes a daunting experience incredibly easy! 

To get started, all you’ll need to do is mix your base ingredients into a bowl. If you’re making ice cream, this is likely going to be simple ingredients like milk, cream, sugar, salt, etc!

When you’re ready, you’ll pour your delicious mixture inside your ice cream maker and press whichever button is suitable for your recipe. Best of all, each function has a preset time, so you don’t even need to second guess the amount of time needed to get a perfect consistency! Sweet!

In just 25 short minutes, you’ll have creamy, rich ice cream, but don’t forget your favorite additions!

Want peppermint chip ice cream like me? No problem! Want to add swirls of peanut butter and chocolate? You can do that too! In fact, the options are endless with this machine! Whatever flavors your heart desires, it can be done in this handy ice cream maker.

When your mixture is nearing an end, all you have to do is drop in your additions and let it finish up! It really is as easy as that! This is also such a fun time to get the kiddos involved so they can choose what flavor they’ll be enjoying in just a few minutes!

Just note that once it’s done, you’ll end up with more of a soft-serve texture, so if you’re looking for a firmer consistency, then just pop it in the freezer for a couple of hours before enjoying it.

Now comes the best part of all – enjoying your delicious, homemade ice cream!

My mouth is watering all over again just thinking about how yummy this holiday-inspired peppermint ice cream I made last week was! And my kiddos’ favorite – vanilla with my favorite sprinkles!

From the first time using this ice cream maker, I’m was totally impressed, and I have to say… it’s been one of my favorite new appliances to use (and my family sure does love it too)! Thanks for changing the game on ice cream, Cuisinart! 😍

YUM!!! Enjoy Hip2Savers! 🍨

  4. Jill Legault

    I want one SOOO badly!!! Signed up! You guys are awesome.

  5. Mom of 6

    Woah! I have never seen one with 3 functions and this looks so awesome! Homemade ice cream is the best but gelato would be even better in my humble opinion. 😁Thanks Hip2Save for putting on the best give aways ever!

    • PrincessMom

      Ooh, that sounds good! I liked the idea of homemade ice cream but homemade gelato sounds even better! 🙂

    • nita

      The saturated fat and high sugar in regular ice cream keeps me away, but sorbets and the low fat ice cream from Aldis satisfy the craving sometimes!

  6. A.B.

    Hi, I’m curious how this one compares to the Whynter ice cream maker that I’ve seen y’all post about as well? What are the main differences? Thanks in advance! Y’all are rocking the season H2S! 💕🎄

    • Jen

      This one is smaller and has a freezer bowl so its one batch at a time unless you have a spare bowl. My whynter (the wider one) does not have different speed settings on it however I don’t really care about that as I wanted a machine that didn’t require a large bowl taking up precious freezer space. That said one of the newer whynter models may also have speed options for an authentic Gelato.

  7. Nichole

    TY. Just a one time entry?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! You can sign up once and you will be entered for all of them!
