For realz. I am LOVIN’ this ice cream machine.
Folks who follow me on Twitter
or on Facebook
might have seen me post last week that my Mama had bought me an ice cream machine. Anydoggy who dropped by my blog on Sunday, got a sneak peek
at the joy, rapture and pure delight that my ice cream machine has brought to my life.
Life is tough for Kolchak Puggle.
You dogs think it’s all puppies and rainbows to have a Mama like mine. I see the posts. “Can I come live with you Kolchak?” “Will your Mom adopt me, Kol?” There is a darker underbelly to being the pup of a canine nutrition student. She is super picky about what we are allowed to eat. So when Daddy brought home a certain dog treat that can be found in the freezer aisle, Mama took one look at the ingredients and said “No Way, Jose.” Dad’s not even Mexican. I have no idea why she keeps calling him Jose. Mama must magine she is living in some romantic fiction book where she has a hot Latin lover. Sad really. But I digress, that dirty rotten Mama, spoiled all the fun and we were not allowed to try that frosty treat. It got her thinking though. Why couldn’t she make dog friendly ice cream treat? That was it. She bought an ice cream machine and got to work. Our first attempt, Dogopolitan Ice cream, was a bit of a mess. Mama is still committed to the idea. It just needs work. Her second attempt, Chicken Ice Cream, was a SMASH HIT.
Kolchak’s Famous Chicken Ice Cream
wheat free, dairy free and delicious

And it was SO EASY TO MAKE.
For real, any human can do it NO PROBLEM. Trust me. I have a trust worthy face, don’t I? You don’t even need and ice cream machine. A regular blender will do!
2 cups cooked chicken, diced small
1 cup LFLS (low-fat/low-sodium) chicken stock
Optional: Green Bean, Carrot or any other delicious puree as topping.
Place diced chicken & chicken stock in a blender, food processor or (our fav) the Magic Bullet*. Blend on high, until mix is very smooth and pasty.
Option 1: Place chicken paste in ice cream machine and turn on. Allow chicken “ice cream” to churn, until it firms up, approx. 20 min. Make sure you frequently scrape down the edges of the bowl to ensure it doesn’t freeze hard to the edge.
Option 2: Place ice cream in a container and place in freezer. Allow to set for half hour, then remove from freezer and blend. Return mix to freezer. Repeat every half hour until ice cream is firm enough to scoop.
Scoop into a dish. We like it fancy, so we have our own parfait cups, but hey, use whatever bowl floats your boat. If you are super fancy and spoiled, garnish with vegetable puree (1 cup frozen veggies like beans or carrots, pureed with 1/2 c. LFLS chicken stock. Easy as pie.)
I’ll just have a few bites of this Chicken Ice Cream…
Wow! Tasty! Got any more of that, Mom?
LOL, seriously – look at those eyes. I was totally overwhelmed by the awesomeness.
Even Felix lapped his up!
*Please note that we received no promotional consideration from Magic Bullet or the As Seen on TV store, but if they wanted to send us stuff, that would be freakin’ sweet.
What is your favourite treat to help beat the heat?
