Homemade Ice Cream

Ingredients

2 ziplocs (large & small)
ice cubes
1/4-1/2 cup of salt
1.5 cups of your favorite milk, reduced fat milk, or heavy cream
two tablespoons of sugar
additions (see above)


Fill the large ziploc halfway with ice cubes and add 1/4-1/2 cup of salt. You can use rock salt (works best) or table salt (still works well).


In the small bag, put 1.5 cups of your favorite milk, reduced fat milk, or heavy cream. Add two tablespoons of sugar for every 1.5 cups of milk (or to taste).


Seal the smaller bag then place it in the big bag and SHAKE IT. This is where the kids can help! They can (gently) shake, rock, spin, toss, and play with the bag. It takes about 5-7 minutes of good shaking to get to the right consistency.


Congrats! You have made your first ice cream! Serve it up right out of the bag if you want to (just rinse the salt off the outside beforehand).

Notes

It so simple, so satisfying, and you can quickly and easily make individual servings. You probably have everything you’ll need in your kitchen right now. You can even swap ingredients for your pickiest little eaters!

Here are some great flavor additions before you shake it up:

Strawberry: add a few chopped strawberries to the mix before agitating it

Chocolate: add chocolate syrup or cocoa powder

Honey ice cream? Yes please!

Espresso: add a cooled-off shot of espresso for mommy?

Flavors: Vanilla, strawberry, and almond extract also make great additions.

Feeling adventurous? Try cookies, candies, fruits, herbs, mint, sugar substitutes… Let your and your kids’ imaginations run wild!

My daughter had an absolute blast making this!
