The only thing better than ice cream is homemade ice cream and this summer, you can enjoy one-of-a-kind flavors or creations as often as you want with a little help from this $20 Amazon find. 

Thousands of shoppers love Dash's My Pint ice cream maker for crafting frozen treats at home. In just 30 minutes, the gadget whips up personalized pints of gelato, frozen yogurt and ice cream. Shoppers can use the included recipe book or put their own spin on classic recipes to best suit their preferences (like vegan-friendly, gluten-free, or protein-packed varieties) or to include their favorite goodies (like peanut butter cups). It's no wonder it's received 2,600 five-star ratings and that it's Amazon's top-selling ice cream maker this summer.

To buy: Dash My Pint Ice Cream Frozen Yogurt Maker, $20 at amazon.com 

The pint-size tool is just a bit larger than a big coffee mug and comes in three colors: aqua, pink, and white. The tiny machine has an electric spoon that churns your mixture for 30 minutes once you fill it up and tap the start button. The only prep required is chilling the bowl in the freezer.

Owners love its small footprint, affordable price point, and versatility. Those with food allergies or lactose intolerance can finally enjoy all kinds of flavors that may be hard to find at stores. And anyone hoping to enjoy frozen desserts sans preservatives or added sugars can finally make their own using simple ingredients.

In fact, the products review section is packed with creative ideas and recipes including oat milk, Greek yogurt, cream cheese, and more. Some even use it to make granola-ready breakfast soft serve using protein powder, Greek yogurt, and fruit.  

Surprisingly, reviewers prefer it over store-bought ice cream and other makers on the market thanks to its easy-to-use design and small size. "Move over Halo Top, Slim Twin, and Enlightened. You have met your match," one reviewer wrote. "I had previously tried using my family's Cuisinart ice cream maker that is way too big for me, takes up way too much room in my freezer, and makes way too much at a time to store. This Dash is a little ice cream dream come true!"

And owners love that it easily fits in your fridge. "This one couldn't be easier to clean or store," another reviewer wrote. "Unlike those big makers that require so much acreage in your freezer, this fits perfectly in the bin on my freezer door."

No matter what you're craving this summer, the personal ice cream maker can have it ready faster than it takes to make a typical dinner. With so many possibilities, the only thing to consider now is which refreshing treat you'll make first.
