Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag

Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag

At our homeschool group the kids made homemade ice cream in a bag! How fun. It sounded like something we needed to try at home so we gave it a shot.

The kids had fun although I had to do a lot of the shaking. ;) It turned out great, the kids loved the treat and the ice cream was yummy!

Can be a good frugal option too instead of buying ice cream from the store.

Here’s the recipe:
1/2 cup milk or half and half
1 T sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla.
Mix in a small freezer Ziploc bag.

Fill a gallon size Ziploc freezer bag 1/2 full with ice. Add 3T. salt to ice.
Put smaller bag inside larger bag. Shake 5 minutes. (use a towel or gloves to keep hands warm)

When removing the smaller bag, quickly dip it in cold water to get the salt off the outside of the bag otherwise the ice cream gets a salty flavor.

Add crushed cookies, sprinkles, etc. if desired.

    I agree with Jonathan this is usually a complicated connect with, but I’d be much extra comfortable seeing Romney begin to devote far more now. By allowing Obama to outspend him decisively now, Romney runs the risk of currently being defined negatively and possessing a excellent deal of that stick. Despite some conservative parsing on the polls, Obama’s success within the polls indicates that it has been working up to now. Don’t forget, a person in no way includes a second chance to make a 1st impression, and it might become as well late for Romney to move away from what impression of him that Obama is earning
