Top Tip – Who doesn’t like a nice bit of stirring?Making up a powdered mix…

Do you use a powdered soft serve mix like Taylor UK’s Frozen Yopiu powder?

Do you suffer from a slightly inconsistent finished product some times? Preparation is the key…


Everyone likes a good bit of stirring from time to time – this is one of those times!

The biggest mistake which we see at Taylor UK is lack of preparation time when mixing up a powdered soft serve mix; whether it’s Taylor UK’s Frozen Yopiu powder, Caterlinks ‘Fabbri Super Soft’ or any other powdered base mix the preparation is the same.

Mixing up Frozen Yopiu (the method is the same for any powdered product)

  1. Pour the correct amount of liquid into a suitably sized bucket or pail, this 6 litres if you’re using Yopiu powder. The liquid could be milk, water, natural yogurt or a combination of all three.
  2. Using a whisk, slowly sprinkle the contents of one bag into the liquid mixing continuously for a good minute or so to ensure that the powder begins to dissolve without sinking to the bottom.
  3. Now the important bit – leave the mix to stand for 8 to 10 minutes. This allows the powder to re-hydrate fully and give the stabilisers time to start doing their ‘thing’. If you rush this the product won’t be right and you may end up with a slightly gritty/grainy product which is icy as the water in the mix hasn’t been combined with the other ingredients properly. While the mix is resting, use this time lube and re-assemble your soft serve machine and run sanitiser through it.
  4. After 10 minutes, give the liquid a really good stir to ensure that everything has dissolved properly. Try to avoid aerating the liquid too much, excess foam will effect the freezing process and may cause other problems.
  5. Pour some of the prepared liquid into the hopper of your soft serve freezer, push out any excess sanitiser and prime your Taylor Soft Serve machine in the correct manner.

Sometimes the simplest things can cause the biggest, avoidable, problems.
