While browsing the internet today, I came across a darling website called Kaboose. For all you moms out there who knew about it, this wont be new to you. But for the rest of us, what a great site!! So many great craft/activity ideas along with fun printable stuff.
This is where I learned about Ice Cream in a Bag.
We tried it. YUM!!
Three ingredients, 2 ziploc bags, ice and rock salt. Voila! Ice Cream in a bag! Here are the instructions:
What you'll need:
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 cup milk or half & half
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- 6 tablespoons rock salt
- 1 pint-size plastic food storage bag (e.g., Ziploc)
- 1 gallon-size plastic food storage bag
- Ice cubes
How to make it:
- Fill the large bag half full of ice, and add the rock salt. Seal the bag.
- Put milk, vanilla, and sugar into the small bag, and seal it.
- Place the small bag inside the large one, and seal it again carefully.
- Shake until the mixture is ice cream, which takes about 5 minutes.
- Wipe off the top of the small bag, then open it carefully. Enjoy!
Tips:A 1/2 cup milk will make about 1 scoop of ice cream, so double the recipe if you want more. But don't increase the proportions more that that -- a large amount might be too big for kids to pick-up because the ice itself is heavy.
I hope you will give this a try! We made some to eat with our brownies for Family Home Evening tonight. While it sat "freezing" we had a paper airplane competition and played bocce ball in the backyard. Summer FHE's are the best!
