Edy’s – The Best Brand of Orange Sherbet

edys-orange-sherbet

As an ice cream connoisseur, I’m often trying different ice creams, sorbets and gelatos – yes, they’re all different things! There is, however, a distinct lack of quality sherbets on the market for us to delve in to. I haven’t really found many that I thought were good enough to share with you guys – until I tried Edy’s Orange Sherbet, that is.

If you’re curious about what the difference between the different types of ice cream are, then the basics is this;

  • Sorbet is fruit based.
  • Sherbet is essentially a sorbet with a little milk added
  • Ice cream is mainly cream based – sometimes with milk depending on the recipe.
  • If it uses milk, then technically it’s a gelato!

Anyway, this Edy’s orange sherbet is pretty delicious and I haven’t managed to find any other sherbets that can match it in terms of flavor and texture. Let’s have a look at why I think it’s the best brand of orange sherbet.

Best Brand of Orange Sherbet

Low Calories

Whenever you consider ‘low calorie’ anything, you’re usually automatically thinking “this probably won’t taste as good as the regular version”. The good thing about Edy’s is that this really isn’t the case. Even though it’s not the richest sherbet I’ve ever tasted, I think it matches it’s competitors in terms of taste. Which is great, because it’s actually made with skim milk. This means that you don’t need to be too concerned with calories – half a cup of Edy’s is only around 120 calories. Pretty great right?

Strong Taste

I don’t know about you, but if I want an orange ice cream or sherbet, I want it to taste strong. I wanna have a aftertaste in my mouth after I’ve finished eating. This is definitely what you’ll get with Edy’s, as one of the main ingredients is orange juice from concentrate. This is great for those of us who like a strong tasting sherbet!

Soothing Texture

If you read other reviews on this blog, you’ll probably know; I’m super critical. Well, I can’t be too critical of this one, especially the texture. It really is one of the better sherbets I’ve tasted store bought, and I should know; I’ve tried a lot!.

Conclusion

In conclusion, Edy’s are one of the better brands out there when it comes to quality and taste. I’d have no trouble recommending them to a friend, so if you’re interested in Edy’s Ice Cream then I recommend this the first flavor that you try!

Will Sorbet Make Me Fat? The Truth Revealed

will-sorbet-make-me-fat

People often ask themselves the question; ‘will sorbet make me fat’? This is probably because they know that sorbet is generally made up of only three ingredients; fruit juice, water and SUGAR!

It’s definitely one of the more difficult questions for you to answer. If you’re looking to eat some delicious sorbet but you’re on a diet, then it’s important to now the effect sorbet will have on your diet. Will it really make you fat if you eat sorbet every day? Well, the answer is; it depends.

Will Sorbet Make Me Fat?

Will sorbet make you fat?

Whilst sorbet won’t specifically make you fat, you have to make sure that you eat it in normal sized quantities. If you’re eating an entire litre of sorbet every day after dinner, the yes; it might have an effect on your waistline. But if you’re eating sorbet in smaller cup size quantities, then the likelihood is that it’s not going to have much of an effect on your diet.

The reason that many people think that sorbet will make them fat is that it has high quantities of sugar. Not only is it made with sugar, but the fruit purees and juices that are used are pretty much all sugar, too. This means that sorbet is super high in carbohydrates. Cutting carbs has commonly been linked with the easiest way to lose weight, which is probably why sorbet has ended up with such a bad reputation.

In reality, just because something is super high in carbohydrates and sugars, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re going to gain a ton of weight. The majority of people, myself included, are of the opinion that you don’t need to completely cut carbs out to lose fat. It really depends on the amount of calories that you’re eating per day more that anything else.

How to eat sorbet and avoid getting fat?

Now, that doesn’t mean to say that eating carbs is good for dieting – too many can make it more difficult for you to lose fat, especially if you’re not getting enough exercise. A good way to combat this is making sure you getting at least 15 minutes of exercise every day. This way, you can be sure that they carbohydrates and sugars that you’re eating will be utilized and expended as energy.

If we’re to take that into account, then sorbet can actually be a really good option if you’re on a low calorie diet. This is because it’s naturally extremely low in fat – it’s basically just sugars. Because there’s only 4 calories per gram of carbohydrates, it means that even a 500ml tub of sorbet isn’t usually more than 4-500 calories, which can easily be incorporated as part of your diet.

If you’re adamant on eating sorbet on a daily basis – no judgement here – then your best option is to maintain a healthy balance in the rest of your meals for the day. If you’re eating a full tub of sorbet followed by half a pack of cookies and a bag of doritos, you’re undoubtedly going to gain weight. If you’re eating a cup of sorbet after your dinner of grilled chicken breast and salad, then no – you’re likely not going to gain much weight from this.

Conclusion

Now, it’s pretty clear to see that sorbet won’t make you fat – if you eat it in normal amounts, that is! What I love most about sorbet is that you don’t need an ice cream machine to make it, too! The key to any diet is undoubtedly balance, so strictly eating a balanced amount of sorbet will not make you fat. You may experience some weight gain if you’re eating several tubs of sorbet per day, however!

Rice Dream Bars

rice-dream-bars

Calories per bar: 290

Yes yes, you read that right that there’s 290 calories per Rice Dream Bar. That can’t be healthy, right?

Well whilst you might think they’re a bit high in calories – and you’d be right in thinking that – the amount of calories in your ice cream bars doesn’t define how healthy it is. This bar is coated with high fat things like nuts and coconut oil, so it’s bound to be on the high side when it comes to calories. This doesn’t, however, mean that it’s unhealthy! Far from it, in fact.

If you want a natural ice cream bar, then you should consider this one from DREAM (this is a rice dream, but they make a nice almond dream too!).

So Delicious Bars

so-delicious-ice-cream-bars

Calories per bar: 180

Everyone know I loooove So Delicious products. This is mainly because they’re made with high quality ingredients, and they taste delicious.. hence the name!

So Delicious have a massive array of ice cream bars, made from coconut milk, almond milk.. even cashew milk! Whilst their products might be a tad high on the calories, I can’t deny them from the list when you really consider how much 180 calories is. That’s only two apples, or a bag of chips – so it’s not that bad, right?

Perrys Ice Cream Bars

perrys-ice-cream-bars

Calories per bar: 180

Much similar to the Magnums that you’ll find dominate the ice cream market in the UK and Europe, Perry’s is a US equivalent that whilst isn’t the healthiest, do keep the calories below 200.

They don’t quite have the variety of some of the other ice cream bars that I’ve listed, but this doesn’t mean to say they aren’t as delicious! Give thesePerry ice cream bars a chance; you won’t be disappointed.

What makes an ice cream bar healthy, anyway?

I’m glad you asked. There are a few things that you should consider if you’re looking to get yourself a super healthy ice cream bar. They are;

 Calories – First comes first, if you’re trying to lose a few pounds then the amount of calories in your ice cream is undoubtedly the thing that you want to consider. If you can find an ice crea bars that’s under 100 calories, you’re pretty much golden.

 Low Sugar – Keeping the sugar count low is difficult with ice cream, as a certain amount of sugar is pretty much necessary for it to be made (or a sugar alternative). If you need to, you can always opt for a diabetic ice cream to keep the calories down.

 Low Fat – Whilst the fat in milk isn’t necessarily bad, especially if you’re opting for a milk alternative like coconut milk, then keeping the fat lower is great for cutting calories.

 Lack of Chemicals – This is something that people always forget, and it kind of frustrates me! Ice cream doesn’t need a ton of additional ingredients to be made, so try to avoid anything with an abundance of additional chemicals. And if you really want to avoid this stuff, you can opt for a good quality sorbet.

Conclusion

Overall, it’s important to remember that ice cream should be eaten as a treat – not all day every day! One of the best ways to ensure you’re not eating too much ice cream is too eat healthy ice cream bars, as they limit the number of calories you can eat to a good amount, and you don’t need to worry about having to scoop your own ice cream. You should always make sure that you don’t restrict yourself too much, so don’t hesitate to pick yourself up a nice ice cream bar treat every now and then.

Ice Cream vs Sherbet – How are they different?

sherbet

One of the less common variations of a frozen dessert is  sherbet. Whilst you might not be fully aware of what a sherbet is and how it differs from ice cream and sorbet, stick around; I’ll go through all the differences between them.

Essentially, a sherbet is a sorbet with one difference; there’s a drop of milk added. This milk makes all the difference in taste and texture. A sherbet is somewhere between a sorbet and a gelato, though you could probably notice the difference pretty easily if you eat them often enough like I do. Lets have a quick look at the differences between the two.

Ice Cream vs Sherbet – Quick Roundup

If you’re in a rush and don’t have time to check out the full article, I’ve decided to round it up in this quick list of Pros and Cons of both gelato and ice cream. These are;

Sherbet

Much lower in fat content than ice cream. Must be below 2% fat content to be served as a sherbet.

Because of this less fat, it’s usually much lower in calories

Doesn’t use cream traditionally (thought it can), just milk or buttermilk. This minimizes the fat content.

Great for making alcohol fused dessert (Champagne Sherbet, mmmm).

Ice Cream

Made with the same churning process as sherbet, but usually thicker consistency due to it’s ingredients

More fat due to the use of cream

Served colder than sherbet traditionally

Must be minimum 10% fat to be classified as ice cream

Much more common than sherbet, though many sherbets masquerade under the name ‘low fat’ ice cream.

These are the primary differences between ice cream and sherbet. Whilst they aren’t significant, they will undoubtedly give you a different tasting result at the end of their production. Let’s delve a little deeper into what sherbet really consists of, and how it compares to ice cream.

Ingredients

You won’t notice much of a difference in the ingredients of a sherbet and an ice cream. Generally, the only difference between the two is that a sherbet does not use a cream like ice cream. Instead, sherbet is a more fruit based dessert with a touch of milk – think a sorbet with a little extra! Here’s an idea of the basic ingredients of a sherbet;

Of course, this is just the basis of your sorbet and you can decide yourself what kind of fruits and additional flavors you’d like to add.

Carbs

Sherbet has significantly more carbs and sugars than ice cream. This is because it is primarily made up for cane sugar and fruit juices, whereas ice cream has a larger ratio of fat content. For this reason, you should probably avoid a sherbet if you’re on any sort of low carb or ketogenic diet, as a sherbet will probably have your daily allowance of carbohydrates in one serving!

Fat Content

This is the primary difference between a sorbet and a sherbet. Whereas a sorbet is just fruit puree, water and sugar, a sherbet has a little milk added. This increases it’s fat content, but it still pales in comparison when compared to the high fat content of ice cream.

The fat content of your sherbet will depend on the type of milk that you use. Usually, it’s advised that you use whole milk for the best results, though this is entirely down to you. I personally wouldn’t use skimmed milk, as I don’t think that it gives a good result – the point of a sherbet is that it’s a little creamier than a sorbet!

You should probably avoid eating ice cream if you’re on a strict low calorie diet and opt for a sherbet or a sorbet instead.

Protein

Both ice cream and sherbet have a low protein content, though a sherbet will have a little bit more due to the fact that it’s made with more milk (this isn’t set in stone and depends on the recipe that you use).

One thing that I like to advise if you’re trying to increase the protein content of your desserts is to add a little whey protein. This can dramatically increase the amount of protein in your dessert, without having too much effect on the taste. Make sure to get the same flavor whey as your dessert though, or you could opt for an unflavored whey protein that will work with any flavor of sherbet.

Which is better for dieting?

Neither! Haha just kidding! Both sherbet and ice cream should be eaten sparingly if you’re on a very strict diet, although you can still eat ice cream every day and lose weight!

In terms of which is better for dieting, it would have to be sherbet as it has a much lower fat content than ice cream, therefore usually slightly less calories. Of course, this all depends on the brand and type of ice cream/sherbet that you purchase. FYI, it’s never going to be okay to eat Ben & Jerrys on a diet, stop trying to convince yourself(!).

Texture

Texture wise, a nice sherbet will actually combine both the creaminess of a traditional ice cream whilst allowing you to get the same refereshing feeling that you get from eating a sorbet. Remember that to be considered a sherbet, it has to be less than 2% fat. This means that your dessert will undoubtedly be lighter in texture than an ice cream, because it lacks the same amount of fat.

Variety of Flavors

Generally, you’ll find the same amount of flavors in both sherbet and ice cream. However, this is not the case if you’re looking at alcohol infused desserts.

Things like champagne work perfectly with a sherbet and you’ll often see it as an option in restaurants around the country. This is because a champagne sherbet has a certain lightness that you won’t get from ice cream. Saying this, fuller alcohols like Baileys work better with ice cream, as they complement the creaminess.

Allergies

You’ll come across the same allergy issues with sherbet as you will with ice cream. If you have an intolerance to dairy, you can always look at using a soy milk as opposed to a whole milk in your sherbet, though it will undoubtedly have an effect on the taste and texture of your dessert.

Top Brands

edys-orange-sherbet

If I’m going to eat a tub of sherbet, I always make sure to stick with a flavor that I know. The most commonly eaten sherbet is undoubtedly orange. If I’m going to eat orange sherbet, I’ll definitely go for an Edy’s Orange Sherbet . It’s pretty low in calories as it’s made with skim milk – not my usual choice, but it’s seems to work with this sherbet.

breyers-ice-cream

As usual, for ice cream I always tend to stick with Breyer’s as my favorite brand of ice cream. I think it’s just because I like the texture; you can’t go wrong with Breyer’s!

My favourite Gelato recipes

If you’re looking to make your own gelato, I thought I’d better round up some of my favorite options.

  • A nice homemade lime sherbet
  • Simple Orange Sherbet
  • A quirky Kool Aid Sherbet

Overall Verdict

To conclude, a sherbet and an ice cream aren’t particularly similar. You’d be more accurate comparing a sherbet to a sorbet, as they are both based on fruit purees, and are both frozen in an ice cream freezer. Remember; a sherbet is essentially just a sorbet with a little milk added!

Enlightened Ice Cream Review

enlightened-ice-cream

I don’t know about you, but my Instagram timeline has been filled with people eating Enlightened Ice Cream. It’s like suddenly out of nowhere, Enlightened has become the new Ben & Jerrys for fitness models! Whilst I like the idea that you can enjoy a super low calorie dessert, I was slightly dubious that it ws really going to be like ice cream – or even frozen yoghurt, for that matter.

After reading the ingredients list, I was baffled at how this dessert could even be the same texture as ice cream. Now, I’ll be honest and say that I only tried that plain vanilla flavor, so I can only really speak on that experience. I’m pretty sure that the chocolate flavors will probably taste a little different, but I’m yet to try those flavors so I’ll save them for a later review a little further down the line.

The reason that I said I don’t know how this can be similar to ice cream? Well, the ingredients of course! It’s primary ingredient is skim milk; fine, that’s pretty normal for a diet ice cream nowadays. But, it’s least used ingredients are sugar and cream – the foundation of any good ice cream!

Instead of using sugar, Enlightened use a mixture of monk fruit extract and erythitol – both naturally occurring sweeteners that you’re going to find in a lot of dieting products (less so with monk fruit extract, but it’s becoming more popular). And instead of using cream, Enlightened use Milk Protein Isolate; this helps the thicken the dessert, as well as increase the protein content of the ice cream.

Enlightened Ice Cream Review

Anyway, let’s have a look at a few things that I noted whilst eating the Enlightened Ice Cream;

Texture

Now I’ll admit, I did read some online reviews before eating this ice cream to check the general consensus. Whilst the majority of reviews I read were saying “OMG this is AMAZING!” because they had obviously been sent the ice cream for free, there were a few honest ones amongst them. Enlightened ice cream has a frothy texture, almost like you’ve used a milk frother to make it creamier.

The honest reviews seemed to imply that this ice cream wasn’t as creamy as what you may get with a regular ice cream. I’d probably disagree with this – I found it to be extremely creamy! This sis likely due to the amount of protein isolate that’s used, which adds to the texture of the dessert.

Taste

The taste of the ice cream is pretty bland, in my opinion. I guess I did just try the plain vanilla version, so I can’t speak for all of the flavors but yeah.. it didn’t taste as good as a regular ice cream, which I’m guessing is the goal of these protein ice creams that have become more and more popular recently.

This is likely because it doesn’t have the sugar and cream that you’d use in a regular ice cream. So, I can’t really argue with the fact that this doesn’t taste like a regular ice cream. Like many foods that try and put a healthy spin on things, it’s literally impossible to maintain the same taste with this.

That doesn’t necessarily mean to say that the taste of ice cream is bad, by the way. It’s still pretty good. But, it’s just not quite as good as what you’d get with a regular ice cream, in my opinion.

Conclusion

To conclude, in all honesty I probably wouldn’t consider purchasing this ice cream again. I love the fact that it’s so low in calories, but for that that isn’t really worth the lack of taste. I’d much prefer to have a higher calorie ice cream and cut the calories out somewhere else!

What is the best ice cream freezer?

ice-cream-freezer

Considering buying an ice cream freezer but not too sure where to start? Well, here you’re in the right place. Making sure you get the right ice cream freezer for your needs is important, so you should think about what you are really looking for. Check out Uncle Mike’s Guide to Ice Cream Makers.

An ice cream freezer does exactly what it says on the label. But, there are different brands and varieties out there that make it difficult to know which option you should go for. Before you buy an ice cream freezer, there are undoubtedly a few things that you’ll need to consider beforehand.

Types of Commercial Ice Cream Freezer

Size

The main thing that you’ll want to consider is the size of your ice cream freezer. For me, it tend to split that into two categories. That’s commercial ice cream freezers (like a chest freezer) and regular ice cream freezers (a lot smaller and more compact). Between these two types of ice cream freezer, you should be able to find something that suits your needs.

Standard Chest Freezer

If you’re looking for your standard freezer, then a chest freezer might be the best way to go for you. A chest freezer is simple, and has the benefit that you don’t just have to store ice cream in it. It works as well for other foods as well, as long as you don’t mind them being stored at the same temperature as your ice cream.

Dipping Cabinet

This type of freezer is specifically made for those looking to serve ice cream to the public. This gives your customers a great opportunity to check out the products and ice creams that you have available for them to choose from.

Glass Top

If you have an array of different flavors that you’re looking to store in your ice cream freezer, then it just makes sense to go for something with a glass top. By doing this, you can be sure that you won’t have to continually open your ice cream freezer every day to check what’s in there!

Best Commercial Ice Cream Freezer

Finding the best commercial ice cream freezer isn’t easy as there are numerous options out there for you. A good brand that you may or may not have heard of is Atosa. They create some pretty awesome products that are ideal if you’re looking for a large ice cream freezer that won’t break your bank balance.

Types of Small Ice Cream Freezer

Under Countertop

Whilst this can still be a commercial ice cream freezer, the majority of the time you’ll find that this isn’t big enough to store lots of ice cream. It’s usually better suited to something you might need in your home or a shop.

Getting yourself an under the countertop freezer could be a good option if you don’t want something that will take up all the space in your house or small business.

Mobile

Best for small businesses, this type of mobile ice cream freezer is ideal for those who might be looking to introduce a small ice cream freezer into their shop. Getting a mobile ice cream freezer could change the design of your shop or house.

Why is ice cream made with salt?

ice-cream-salt

Although you might think the history of ice cream is boring, you really couldn’t be further from the truth. There’s many different things about ice cream that you might not know, so here we are at Uncle Mikes to help you learn about some of the common things that you might wonder about ice cream.

Why is ice cream made with salt?

Well, this actually dates back to the 17th century and the people of that era used this specific method. If you didn’t know, salt is a primary catalyst in lowering the temperature of ice cream. Back then, they used to use it in ice cream, ice and everything like that. Ever wonder why salt was started to be used on the roads all over the world? Yes, this started because salt rose the temperature so much that the ice would then be solid instead of patchy.

So, the reason that salt is used in ice cream isn’t for taste unless in special different flavours like salted caramel. It’s actually just used to keep the ice cream of a good thickness and consistency.

Interesting, huh?

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realise that ice cream is primarily popular throughout the heat of the summer, right? So, ever wonder what they used to use before freezers were invented?

You got it! Salted ice! Well, I say salted ice, they used to use the ice out of salt lakes, which was used specifically because it kept the temperature super low. This was actually made popular in the Lake District in the UK, which is a part of England that is full of big gorgeous lakes. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend that you got over there and visit the Lake District as it is one of the major tourist destinations in the UK outside of London and Buckingham Palace.

Anyway I hope you learned something about ice and why they use salt in it; we only use the best salt in  our ice cream!

Best Ice Cream Scoop [2020 Full Guide]

ice-cream-scoop

If you’re thinking about making your own ice cream, or you just purchase your own ice cream often, then it can be worth looking at getting an ice cream scoop. Not only can ice cream scoops make your ice cream look nicer, but they’re also extremely handy for portion sizing, which is necessary when eating calorific ice cream.

But out of the different options out there, is one option much better than the other? Or are all ice cream scoops relatively similar? Well, listed below are some of the best ice cream scoops available right now, so let’s have a look at the similarities and differences between them.

What to look for in an Ice Cream Scoop?

Ice cream is something most people enjoy especially on hot summer days. The beauty of the scooped ice cream makes your ice cream even more delicious. For desserts such as brownies, specific amounts of ice cream is required. You require a good scoop for correct measurements. One challenge you encounter mostly is scooping the ice cream when it’s still frozen – so is there a specific scoop that’s better for the type of hard ice cream?

The best ice cream scoops give equal amounts of scoops without much struggle. They also enable scooping of ice cream when still hard. They are durable and save you the trouble of repeatedly buying new ones. For me, I prefer a spade style scoop for this, as it makes things much easier when dealing with hard ice cream. Granted, it’s still possible to do this with a traditional scoop, but for me a spade scoop is the better choice (which is why I’ve mainly put spade scoops in this list!).

Price

The most important thing to consider when you’re getting an ice cream scoop is the price. Because they’re all very similar in the way that they’re made, then it makes sense to try and find a good deal. You can often find ice cream scoops at around $10, so if you’re on a tight budget, then you can find a cheap one.

Handle

Another thing to consider when you’re purchasing an ice cream scoop is the style of the scoop itself. Many scoops use a rubber handle, which can make it a lot easier to get a firm grip on the scoop itself. However, some scoops have a metal handle, which although might feel better quality, can be a little more difficult to hold.

Style

Another thing to consider when getting an ice cream scoop is the style of the scoop itself. Depending on what you’re looking for, one style may be a better choice – personally, I like the spade style scoop much more than the traditional older ice cream scoop, as it’s easier to dig at the bottom of the tub.

Conclusion

Overall, these are just a few of the best ice cream scoops that you can find available online. Generally, ice cream scoops don’t vary too much in the way their made, so with any of these models, you should be pretty good to go.

However, depending on the type of ice cream that you’re going to be making, one of these scoops might be more suitable than the others (if you are going to make ice cream, then you might want to pick up an ice cream maker too). For soft serve ice cream, it can be a better idea to opt for a disher style scoop, as you’ll easily be able to scoop your ice cream up. However, for soft ice cream, it might be wiser to get a spade style scoop, as this can easily allow you to dig into harder ice cream. So, depending on your needs, each of these may prove to be a good option for you.
