I had a milkshake with dinner the other night. On the way home I pondered, “Surely, I’m not the only one who likes milkshakes or ice cream in the middle of winter…” The rumor is that more people eat more ice cream in the winter than in the summer. And there’s got to be a reason why Alaska – our coldest state – consumes more ice cream per capita than any other state.
If you’ve ever felt the urge for a nice ice cream – whether it’s winter or summer – you can use an ice cream machine to whip up your favorite flavor to enjoy. The Healthy Foods Yonanas Ice Cream Maker, one of the many small appliances available at Best Buy, can convert frozen bananas and other fruits into delicious soft serve ice cream. Not only is it a healthier way to enjoy one of my favorite frozen desserts, but it lets you create your own favorite flavors.
Frozen treats don’t just include ice cream. You can also use a personal blender, like the Oster My Blend Blender, to create your own smoothies that are not only a refreshing drink but can also be very healthy. I either “brew” up my own frozen concoction using a mix of various frozen fruits or if I’m feeling a little lazy, I use Jamba Juice’s frozen smoothie mixes (except I use OJ instead of apple juice.) Personal blenders allow you to mix everything into a perfect sized container, saving the trouble of having to use or handle bulky blenders.
