One of the best parts about summer is that it’s basically a green light to eat ice cream for 90 days straight. While there are plenty of fun flavors at the grocery store to overindulge in, opening up a pint of our favorite frozen dessert isn’t quite the same experience as making it yourself. I know what you’re thinking: Who has time to make ice cream? Well, that’s a moot point when you have the DASH My Pint Electric Ice Cream Maker at the ready. Don’t have one? Don’t fret. You can get one of these babies at Amazon for just $19 when you apply the on-page coupon!
A single serving of the good stuff coming right up! This guy lets you make healthier, homemade ice cream at home.
Dash has become the Internet’s go-to brand for tiny appliances. Most notably, people love the mini waffle maker that comes in different shapes like a heart for Valentine’s Day. Now that it’s summer, we’re setting our focus on its popular personal ice cream maker.
This ice cream maker is easy to use and it churns out a single-serving of ice cream in just 30 minutes! It does take some planning — the ice cream container needs to go in the freezer overnight and the cream and other ingredients need to be chilled well before you can churn. But once everything is ready, you just pour one cup of your cream mixture into the frozen container, pop on the top and hit the power button. This little gadget then slowly mixes the ingredients as it freezes — the idea is to keep the mix moving so it doesn’t form ice crystals.
Not only can you have homemade ice cream anytime you want, but you can experiment with different flavors and different types of liquid — you can try almond milk, coconut milk, yogurt or rice milk to make your personal dessert. But if you need guidance, the ice cream maker comes with a recipe booklet to get you started on your ice cream adventures. Thousands of Amazon shoppers are already dipping their spoons into custom custards — it’s already gotten 4,600 five-star reviews for a few different reasons.
A lot of shoppers use it to mix up ingredients to their liking. One customer says it makes 'a little pint of heaven', but others use it because they can’t eat regular ice cream.
“I have IBS and have issues with regular ice cream,” one delighted shopper wrote. “Dairy free ice cream is crazy expensive at the grocery store and doesn't taste good. This little ice cream maker is my new favorite kitchen appliance! I whip up a batch of ice cream every other day….It's fun to think of new creations. No digestive issues at all and an ice cream I can control the ingredients of!”
If you don’t have a ton of freezer or storage space, you don’t have to miss out on homemade frozen treats.
“Low on freezer space? Don't want a honking 15" cube taking up most of your freezer?” asked a savvy shopper. “This is just why I got this. The cup is about the size of a large mug. It makes about 10 oz or 1 cup of great ice cream. In only 8 minutes. I made a killer matcha and put the freezie-cup back in to make a triple strawberry by dinner….Love this and the space saving. Might not work if you are more into the air-fluff style ice cream. But for us, this makes enough for 4 servings of dense deliciousness.”
Easy to use
Some customers love that this is a fool-proof gadget.
“Y’all, I’m not a patient person,” wrote one eager eater. “I leave the bowl in the freezer for half as long as directed, don’t chill the mix at all, let it churn for about 12 min when most people say 20, and it STILL gets thick enough for a spoon to stand upright. (I also overfill the bowl like a fool, so it’s way thicker toward the bottom.) I can only imagine how good it would be if I actually followed directions lol.”

ST. JOHN'S, N.L. — The Newfoundland and Labrador government says it will not be changing the name of the Colonial Building in downtown St. John's.

Starting today, Saskatchewan residents over the age of 18 can receive their second booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine as long as they received their third dose at least four months prior. "In August, as our transmission rates are slightly picking up, there was interest in people who are 18 to 49 in getting that second booster," Chief Medical Health Officer Dr. Saqib Shahab said. "With people going back to work or school after the summer, it will be in our interest to get the second booster dose.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The day after Oregon Supreme Court Chief Justice Martha Walters fired all nine members of the state commission that oversees public defense, she said Tuesday that she was appointing four new commissioners and reappointing five commissioners from the previous group. Walters had fired the commission members out of frustration that hundreds of defendants charged with crimes and who cannot afford an attorney have been unable to obtain public defenders to represent them. “This c
The Alberta government continues to make its case for a provincial police force to replace RCMP, saying it would add hundreds of front-line officers to small detachments. The United Conservative government outlined its blueprint for more police in rural Alberta today. It says 275 front-line police officers would be added to Alberta's 42 smallest detachments. Justice Minister Tyler Shandro said that as it stands, there is no minimum number of officers at RCMP detachments. He said a made-in-Albert
BEIJING (AP) — Factories in China’s southwest have shut down after reservoirs used to generate hydropower ran low in a worsening drought, adding to economic strains at a time when President Xi Jinping is trying to extend his position in power.

The 70-year-old man who police shot in downtown Windsor Monday bought a machete from a pawn shop not far from the incident. That's according to Valentin Petre, who owns the Rabbit Hole pawn shop near the corner of Wyandotte Street and Ouellette Avenue. Petre says he gave investigators video of a man who appears to be Allan Andkilde, the victim in the shooting, buying the item from his store. "He's been here a few times," Petre said. "We talk once in a while, not to the point where we're buddy-bu
CALGARY — Conservation advocates and experts are concerned a proposal for a Calgary-to-Banff passenger train is chugging along without addressing some key environmental issues in and around the national park. Liricon Capital Inc., the lead private-sector proponent, is touting it as a hydrogen-powered transportation solution with lower greenhouse gas emissions than driving. The company says it has received support from municipalities and the tourism industry, but the Alberta government has told t
The case of a commercial fisher who's suing Indigenous groups continued in Saint John on Tuesday. The case began in April, when Mary Ann Holland applied to the Court of Queen's Bench for an injunction to stop Indigenous fishers from catching elvers in an are where she has an exclusive licence to fish.

A man in southwestern Ontario said he's sleeping on a couch in his Realtor's basement, hoping tenants will vacate his home ahead of a hearing with the Landlord and Tenant Board. Kelvin Edmondson first rented out his Tillsonburg home in August last year before heading off to work on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. While he was away, he said the tenants neglected to pay rent, including heat and hydro, and substantially damaged his property by housing a number of pets against their initial agreemen

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Some Florida schools have moved library books and debated changing textbooks in response to a law critics call “Don’t Say Gay” — and some teachers have worried that family pictures on their desks could get them in trouble. As students return from summer break, educators are cautiously adjusting and waiting to see how the new law governing lessons on gender and sexual orientation will be interpreted and enforced. The new law, championed by Florida’s GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis,
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Cowboys for Trump founder Couy Griffin is fighting to keep his seat as a New Mexico county commissioner as he faces possible removal and disqualification from public office for his participation in last year’s insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Griffin was previously convicted of a misdemeanor for entering Capitol grounds on Jan. 6, 2021. He was sentenced to 14 days and given credit for time served. Three residents of Santa Fe and Los Alamos counties filed a lawsuit seeking
The lawsuit represents more than 100 people, including minors, who were alleged to have been sexually assaulted by 88 priests and staff working at the Quebec diocese starting in 1940, according to a court document and a news release issued by the Arsenault Dufresne Wee firm which filed the class action. In the filing in Quebec Superior Court, an anonymous complainant alleges Ouellet inappropriately touched her, including by rubbing her shoulders and back, and made comments that made her feel uncomfortable.
After 58 weeks of noise, needles and violence at the Meagher Park homeless camp, one neighbour says the return to quiet has been a "nice change." Halifax Regional Police quietly cleared out the park last week, nearly a month after telling people they must leave. "Initially all of the neighbours, you know, we really felt for everyone who was experiencing homelessness or was housing insecure," Emily Keast told CBC's Information Morning Halifax on Monday. "And those feelings started to shift when w
