Review: Prezzy Box Vintage Tea Party Ice Cream Maker and Easter Ice Cream Recipe

I have been looking for an ice cream maker for months now and it was perfect timing when PrezzyBox asked us to review their Vintage Tea Party Ice Cream Maker in the run up to Easter. What better way to make Easter treats than with ice cream!

The Vintage Tea Party Ice Cream Maker is really easy to use but you do have to freeze the base unit for around 12 hours before you use it. It now lives happily in our freezer, ready for whenever we fancy ice cream! Once the base is frozen making ice cream couldn’t be simpler.

The lid and motor unit come apart for cleaning and you simply slot them together, push the paddle into the centre and then put the whole lid on top of the base. It then plugs in and has a simple on/off switch for easy operation.

Ingredients can then be poured through the hole in the lid whilst the ice cream maker is in motion and it takes 20-30 minutes to make ice cream. It is a lot softer than shop bought ice cream but we just pour the ice cream into a lidded tub and freeze it, this makes it into perfect scoopable ice cream.

We used the Vintage Tea Party Ice Cream Maker to make two Easter ice creams – Mini Egg Ice Cream and Creme Egg Ice Cream. Both were really simple to make and the ice cream maker comes with both a basic recipe and a more technical recipe – both for a vanilla ice cream that’s simple to tailor for you own recipes.

    Oh my goodness, this ice cream maker sounds like a dream come true! I would be using it all the time though, my children would be delighted! I might have to invest in one.

    Both those ice creams look awesome! I’ve always wanted to make my own ice cream but I reckon if I had a machine I’d be doing it all the time!
