Ice Cream in a Bag
You won't need special equipment to make this kid-pleasing ice cream.
Remember making butter in Girl Scouts? Everyone passed around the jar of cream and gave it a good shake. After a few rounds, the cream had magically turned to butter. Here is a similar feat that not only yields dessert but exercise for the kids—ice cream in a bag. Here’s how it works.
- 3 T Sugar
- 1 cup Light Cream
- or 1 cup Half and Half
- ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
- ½ cup Rock Salt
- Place sugar, cream and vanilla in a quart-size heavy zip-top plastic bag and seal.
- Place that bag in a gallon size heavy zip-top bag. Layer ice and rock salt in the gallon bag and seal.
- Toss the bag back and forth for approximately 10 minutes.
