Homemade Ice Cream
1 tbs Sugar
1/4 tsp Vanilla
1/2 c. Milk
*For Chocolate: Add 1/2 tbs hot chocolate mix or cocoa powder.
Salt (Rock salt works best)
1. Fill the gallon bag with ice and salt, I used about an eighth of a cup of rock salt.
2. Mix all ingredients in the sandwich sized bag. We used low fat milk and did not run into any complications.
3. Seal the small baggie to ensure that the ice cream and the ice mixture stay separate then put them inside the gallon bag and seal the gallon bag (tape is not necessary for the large bag).
4. Shake it, roll it, twirl it, and keep moving it all around until it thickens up. When we made chocolate, it did not thicken as well as vanilla. Put it in the freezer for ten minutes if you encounter this problem.
5. Enjoy it!
This is a fun activity for over-heated, bored children. It can be used as a science, physical education, large motor, or culinary activity.
