With so many “machines” like Yonanas , Ninja Nice Cream Maker—what do you recommend for nice creams? What do you use?

— Char Nolan


So if there's anyone here who doesn't know what we're referring to when we say nice creams. They're basically like a soft serve ice cream that's often made with a base of frozen banana and other fruits are added Shar and everyone this might surprise you but my favorite thing to use is my food processor. I could use my blender. I don't have those other machines. But in the food processor, I can actually watch the process and it makes it easier for me to know when to stop and it works in quantity as well because when I teach at Rancho love where it does Spa we always do a baked Alaska using this nice cream base, you know, you don't you don't need sweeteners often. It's just bananas and whatever frozen fruit you want. You can do chocolate and so on so sure that's what I use.
