Tonight after having fun playing baseball in the front yard, we came inside to make some ice cream. We found the idea at 2 little hooligans. I had all plans to make a picture tutorial to add to this post, but with 3 excited kids, and momma for that matter, it just didn't happen. If you go to 2 little hooligans you can find the picture tutorial I didn't add.
LET'S GET MAKING THE ICE CREAM
Here is what you will need to make homemade ice cream in a baggie:
2 TBL sugar
1 cup half & half (or light cream)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup coarse salt or table salt
gallon-sized Ziploc bag
pint-sized Ziploc bag
Mix the sugar, half & half, and vanilla. Pour it into a pint-sized Ziploc bag. Make sure you seal it tight.
Fill your gallon Ziploc bag half full and add the salt.
Place the half & half baggie into the gallon Ziploc.
Now the fun begins. Shake, Shake, Shake it up!! The kids had fun with this...for the first 2 minutes. Then I got the privilege of shaking. Shake for about 5 minutes (8 minutes if using cream). When solid remove the icecream baggie and clean off the salt. Then it is time to enjoy!
The kids had fun filling up their ice cream with toppings: cookie crunch, chocolate drops, caramel, and raspberries.
Hope you get the chance to make your own yummy homemade icecream!
