Here in Florida the hot weather is already here and I am sure it will be getting to you guys in the freezing snow soon (hopefully?). That means we are already spending more time outside. Many a snack time ends up being outside too. When it is extremely hot nothing beats a cool treat. Instead of lugging out our giant ice cream maker we now can make individual ice cream treats with our Mugz mini ice cream and slushy makers from Geospace Play in just 3 minutes!
Here are all the pieces. In the cup part you put the ice, ice cream salt and cold water. The small dish is where the treat will be made and then quickly devoured. You fill the dish with the ingredients you want in your ice cream, put it all together and then shake shake shake for 3 minutes straight. My 6 year old was able to do all the shaking on her own.
It comes with a recipe book to give you ideas on many different treats and flavors. To start we made vanilla and chocolate. We actually already had all the ingredients in the house so we just put it all together and literally in 3 minutes the treat was ready. You may seem skeptical as I was but it really does work. It all works because of science. The ice cream salt and the small container make it so tasty treats really are ready in 3 minutes. I timed it to test it out and it worked. If it is slightly liquid on top just mix it up and your treats will turn out like ours did.
The great part about these being individual sized is that each of my kids can pick different flavors and then “make” them on their own. I would even make one of these for myself! Try one with jams or raisins or sprinkles. These are just great when all you want is a small and refreshing treat while spending a day playing outside.
