Ice creams are a good way to supplement our diet and hydration.
We love ice cream! Because during the summer heat, these sweet and delicious snacks and desserts are ideal to refresh. And although we can find ice cream throughout the year, there is no better time to savour them than on the hottest days of summer.
But in addition to the instant freshness they offer, ice cream is also a good way to complement our diet and hydration. Because ice creams, sorbets and slushies are made from water, so they can provide us with an extra supply of hydration. If you bet on the sorbets, choose those that contain less sugar and whose base is the natural fruit.
Here at Snow Flow you will find the slushy machines for sale you are looking for, but you can also find a commercial slushy machine for rental to make your slushy mix and make sure your guests enjoy it. We also provide slushy syrup and everything you need for slush machines for rent.
Ice cream also provides protein and is very good for energy recovery
On the other hand, many ice creams are prepared with milk or yogurt, so they will provide us with calcium when we consume them, a very important nutrient to keep our bones strong. And in addition to calcium, proteins are another of the essential substances for the human body, especially for muscle mass.
So, ice cream also provides protein and is very good for energy recovery of people who play sports. If you opt for fruit ice cream, the contribution of proteins, vitamins and other nutrients will have much more value and will be linked to the properties of the fruit from which it comes. Go ahead and lick your favourite ice cream or slushy!

Smoothies’, ice creams, sorbets … Flavours that refresh
There are a thousand delicious ways to face the hot summer. We give you four recipes against the heat for you to do at home. The ice cream and its flavours are renewed.
There are many ways to resist the heat in the summer evenings: with an ice cream cone, with a spoon and a tub or by sipping in a straw. Smoothies, sorbets, slushies and ice cream have similar compositions, but how are they different? The first ones are prepared with fresh fruit and, to achieve the dense texture that characterizes them, they add yogurt or milk. They are served cold, but they are made without ice.
The sorbets or slushies are closer to the ice cream, but do not contain milk or egg and, therefore, its consistency is lighter and less greasy. They also do not contain ice crystals. The slushies, on the other hand, are prepared with fruit juice -or also with coffee- and they are frozen, until the texture is hailed; or, instead of freezing, ice is crushed and incorporated into the juice. And ice cream usually contains egg, cream, sometimes fruit and never ice incorporated into the recipe.
In short, four ways to take a cold dessert with a low caloric intake (except ice cream):
Vanilla ice cream and ‘cookies’
INGREDIENTS: 3 egg yolks, 400 ml of whipped cream, 3 tablespoons of vanilla essence, 100 g of sugar and 10 cookie-type cookies. The preparation? Heat milk and sugar without boiling. Let it cool. Assemble the cream with some rods and add it to the mixture. The cream should be cold and have at least 30% fat, otherwise it will be almost impossible to assemble it. Next, mix in a bowl the sugary milk already cold with the egg yolks and the vanilla essence. Add the whipped cream little by little, stirring all the time. Add the cookies in small pieces and pour everything into a container suitable for freezer (better elongated and flat). Introduce it in the freezer for at least four hours, stirring it every 30 minutes to prevent the surface from crystallising and the cream to settle to the bottom. Take it out 10 minutes before consuming. Serve it in a wafer tulip.
INGREDIENTS: 200 g of raspberries, 3 strawberries, a glass of milk, a natural yogurt and sugar to taste. The preparation? Freeze strawberries and raspberries. When they are very cold, whisk them together with the rest of the ingredients and serve immediately. You can change the strawberries for the fruits that you prefer. Perfect for the snack.
INGREDIENTS: 3 large lemons, 200 g of sugar and 500 ml of water. As elaborated? Grate the skin of the lemon (only the yellow part) and squeeze the juice with care that the seeds do not run. Mix the zest, juice and sugar with the water and put the mixture in the freezer for 45 minutes. Then take it out, remove it and put it back in the freezer, and repeat the process one more time. Then it will be ready to serve.
INGREDIENTS: a natural or canned pineapple (without syrup), a glass of water, a lemon and sugar to taste. The preparation? Squeeze the lemon and mix it with water. Add the pineapple into pieces previously frozen, beat the mixture and add the sugar you need. You can add a splash of cider or cava and decorate it with a piece of pineapple.
