Do you want yummy homemade ice cream in only 5 minutes? Well, you're in the right place. I absolutely love the flavor of homemade ice cream, but hate dragging the ice cream freezer out. Here's the perfect solution. I came across this wonderful recipe at the Recipe Shoebox. I made one batch following Lara's directions and another using skim milk and Splenda. They both turned out so good I give them a big A+ :) My kids had a blast tossing the baggie back and forth dancing and shaking around. Who knew having fun could taste so good!
Makayla got her glasses today. Doesn't she look cute?
ICE CREAM IN A BAG
1 cup half and half (or skim milk)
2 TBSP sugar (or Splenda)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
quart size ziploc bags
gallon size ziploc bags
Pour half and half, sugar, and vanilla into quart size ziploc bag. Seal. Meanwhile place 4-6 cups ice and 1/2 cup rock salt into the gallon size bag. Place sealed half and half mixture into the bag filled with ice and salt. Seal. Toss, knead, wiggle, and whatever else you can think to keep the bags in motion for about 5 minutes (use oven mits to keep fingers from getting too frosty). Half and half mixture will thicken into ice cream consistency after about five minutes. Remove from bag, add desired toppings, and serve immediately.
