Indulging in ice cream isn't necessarily the best way to keep fit. But what if you could burn calories while making ice cream? That's the brilliant idea behind the Kickball Ice Cream Maker.
Taking a cue from the childhood game of kickball (remember those days?), this unique ice cream churner is literally tucked inside a rubber ball. It has two compartments: one for ice cream ingredients and one for rock salt. You simply place your ingredients inside then kick, shake or toss the ball around.
About 20 minutes of game time yields a pint of homemade ice cream. Cool, eh? The Kickball Ice Cream Maker is produced by Hammacher Schlemmer and retails for $34.85.
