Ice Cream!

by bosssanders on July 24, 2012 with no comments

Steven and I planned a super-special treat for the girls last night!  After chores were finished, we began mixing up a few ingredients so the girls could make their own ice cream!  Since sweets/snacks are “treats” over here, they were SUPER EXCITED.  Not only was it dessert, but it was FUN!  They loved it!!  (And asked to have it again for breakfast…we had a smoothie instead ;) )

Here’s the recipe we used to make our ICE CREAM (recipe makes one serving, so we doubled it):

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup salt- we used table salt in one and the larger granules (Himalayan red salt, but you can use rock salt ;) ).  You can use both, but the larger salt WILL make ice cream that is thicker/more frozen.
  • Ice cubes (enough to fill each gallon-size bag about half full)
  • 1 pint-size ziploc bag
  • 1 gallon-size ziploc bag
  1. Combine the sugar, half and half, and vanilla extract in the pint-size bag and seal it tightly.
  2. Place the salt and ice in the gallon-size bag, then place the sealed smaller bag inside as well. Seal the larger bag. Now shake the bags until the mixture hardens (about 5 minutes). Feel the small bag to determine when it’s done.
  3. Take the smaller bag out of the larger one, add mix-ins, and eat the ice cream right out of the bag. Easy cleanup too! Serves 1.
