[MUSIC] We're gonna make soft serve ice cream today. Soft
serve is a little bit different than other ice creams
in that you kind of have to make it instantly
and serve it. Other ice creams have a little more
stages and you have to store them at certain temperatures.
They're a little more finicky. That's why soft serve is
actually perfect at home. So I our measurement my formula,
I'm gonna throw the blender right on top of the
scale, milk, cream. [MUSIC] Sugar. [MUSIC] And looks like a
lot of sugar. It is, it's ice cream. Salt, put
salt on your ice cream, it'll make it taste better.
Vanilla, last thing this is the stuff that makes it
nice and smooth and velvety. The milk powder. We gonna
bun the heck out of it and it's nice and
smooth and it's ready to drink. [SOUND] Dry ice I'm
going to need about two pounds, it's pretty cheap that's
two bucks a pound at the grocery store. Get a
big rag, get a big apron something that you can
wrap up the dry ice in. I'm gonna do a
little bit at once [SOUND] see, easy. Smash into bits
[MUSIC] All right that's plenty for recipe. Nice sandy carbon
dioxide bits. Now I turn it the mixer all that
looks like is put your basin there Sprinkle in some
dry ice little by little over time. It's gonna be
cold, colder, colder, colder, colder. So it starts to stiffen
up. Once it stiffens up, we're gonna mix it a
little bit longer so it's nice and smooth. So when
you're making it, it starts to look like a big
frothy bubbly milkshake. Don't stress that's just the first stage
but once it really gets cold and starts to freeze
it'll collapse, it will go back to a nice real
smooth soft ceviche. You want to go slow. You can't
almost go to slow when you're spring cleaning [UNKNOWN]. You
go to fast you're going to boil it over. You
just got to keep at it, keep adding more, keep
churning. [MUSIC] Looking pretty good. Oh my God! It looks
so good. [MUSIC] Soft serve. Soft serve. How about some
sprinkles right? [MUSIC] Oh my God, they're so cute. [MUSIC]
[NOISE] All about the soft serve. [MUSIC] Just deal with
it. [MUSIC] [LAUGHTER] Did I make a stupid face? [LAUGHTER]
Can't have Miss Karen eating by her self, so lonely.
So salty. It is really salty, yep. But in a
good way. In a great way. In a great way.
Yep. You look like a little ice cream man with
your tuxedo. Roll. Harmony. Whoa. Oh my god. That's the
whole thing. Get him to get a brain freeze!
