Tips For Success

  • Strawberries not sweet enough? Add a bit more sugar to the mixture before freezing.
  • Use the re-spin function if your ice cream isn’t creamy enough. If needed, add a splash of cream before re-spinning.
  • Prep and freeze several recipes at once so you’ll have some ready to process whenever the mood strikes!
  • Pre-freeze your mix-ins for great texture and flavor.

Delicious Variations

  • Make it Sugar-Free – Use a quarter cup of stevia instead of sugar and replace the corn syrup with agave nectar, then process using the Lite Ice Cream program.
  • Use Different Berries – Replace the strawberries with raspberries, blueberries, or blackberries. Or use a combination to make it a mixed-berry treat.

Prep and Storage

  • Prep Ahead – create the base and let it freeze for at least 24 hours before adding it to the machine.
  • Storage – processed ice cream can be kept in a sealed container inside the freezer for several weeks, up to 1 month.
