Making icecream

Today I made some icecream at the icecream factory because I won a competition to create a new flavour icecream. My flavour was Jungle Jumble.

We had to wear a coat sort of thing, a hair net and things that go over your shoes.

The ingredients are mango, pineapple, banana and orange. In two of the tubs was a orange swirl , in another two was peach swirl and in the last two was pashion fruit swirl.

What we had to do was get the mixture and put the flavours in. I could put as much flavouring as I wanted and we got to taste it to check it was ok. As we were adding the different tipes of the fruity mixture Ella was mixing it with a huge whisk.

When it tasted just right we moved on to the next step. I put in the fruity, milkey mixture in to a machine that made it thicker. We had t wait untill the number hit 70.

The next step was to put it into the tubs. So we pressed the button that made it come out. ( Ella did that.) With my special tool  I smoothed the icecream down then added the orange. To make the orange into swirls with my tool I sort of rippeld it into the icecream. We kept doing it untill the tub was full. Using the movement for the different flavour swirl mixture we had finished.

But we had not completly finshed  we still had to freeze them. so we went to the room were they freeze them. It was the most FREEZING room I  have ever been in!!! "It has to be this cold for the icream to freeze." the man told me.

It took 2 hours for them to freeze so we had lunch and I played in the amazing play area while the icecream was freezing. I loved it not just the play area and lunch but making ice cream!

I had a great time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
