This recipe is enough for one child (or adult, for that matter). It's a perfect activity to do with children since each can make his/her own.
Ingredients & Materials Needed:
1/2 C. half & half1/2 tsp vanilla
1 T. sugar
4 C. crushed ice
4 T. salt
2 quart size Zip-loc bags
1 gallon size Zip-loc freezer bag
A hand towel to prevent fingers from freezing
- Mix the half & half, vanilla and sugar together in one of the quart size bags. Seal tightly, squeezing out as much air as possible.
- Place this bag inside the other quart size bag, again leaving as little air inside as possible and sealing well.
- Put the two bags inside the gallon size bag and fill it with ice, then sprinkle salt on top. Again let all the air escape and seal the bag.
- Wrap the bag in the towel. Shake the bag vigorously, making sure the ice surrounds the cream mixture. Keep shaking until your ice cream is ready, approximately 5-8 mins.
That's it! Scoop the ice cream into a bowl or onto a cone and watch your child's face glow.
