They say the best frozen yogurt is the one that you can make yourself, but I honestly had no idea that this was even possible. The problem with making ice treats at home is that they’re never as creamy as those you can buy in stores or on the street. The fact of the matter is that a bowl of frozen yogurt can cost as much as eight dollars, and so we have to ask ourselves whether getting one from time to time really pays off.
I had no idea that there were specialized appliances that could help one make frozen yogurt at home. I love the treat and have been indulging in it for quite a while, although I make sure to do it only on occasion. So, when I found out that you could actually buy a good frozen yogurt maker, I started doing my research.
First off, I have to point out that some models are priced under thirty, which means that the appliance costs less than 4 bowls of frozen yogurt you get from a chain. The trick is that you get to keep the frozen yogurt machine for the rest of time.
Sure, some other choices, such as those manufactured by world-known brands like Cuisinart, might cost a pretty penny by comparison. I’ve personally stumbled upon one that was priced about one hundred and fifty and that could be used to make ice cream, sorbet, gelato, and frozen yogurt. Of course, you need to make sure that the expense really makes sense for you.
I wouldn’t spend one hundred and fifty on such an appliance, especially as I am a great fan of ice cream made from frozen bananas. I use my good old food processor to whip up a treat whenever I feel like it. But a budget-friendly choice is worth considering, particularly when it costs the price of four frozen yogurt bowls.
From what I gather, many reasonably priced options come with limited capacities, but that’s not a problem given that it’s less likely for you to consume more than 1.5 quarts of frozen yogurt at once. Usually, it takes just about twenty to twenty-five minutes to prepare a batch so that you can enjoy it with your friends and family. In my experience, most of the appliances in this line are user-friendly and come with a bunch of easy-to-use controls. Many allow you to use seeds, nuts, and candy if you want to add them to the mix.
The bottom line is that, when making frozen yogurt at home, you know what goes into it. You can even use yogurt you’ve made yourself so that everything is natural and contains no artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives.
