This weeks Family fun day idea is fun to make and fun to eat and taken less then 10 minutes-
Homemade Ice Cream in a bag
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon sugar
4 cups crushed ice
4 tablespoons salt
2 quart size Zip-loc bags
1 gallon size Zip-loc freezer
gloves or towel to keep fingers from freezing
Mix the milk, vanilla and sugar together in one of the quart size bags.
Seal tightly, allowing as little air to remain in the bag as possible.
Too much air left inside may force the bag open during shaking. Place
this bag inside the other quart size bag, again leaving as little air
inside as possible and sealing well. By double-bagging, the risk of
salt and ice leaking into the ice cream is minimized. Put the two bags
inside the gallon size bag and fill the bag with ice, then sprinkle
salt on top. Again let all the air escape and seal the bag. Wrap the
bag in the towel or put your gloves on, and shake and massage the bag,
making sure the ice surrounds the cream mixture. Five to eight minutes
is adequate time for the mixture to freeze into ice cream.
What fun things do you like to do together as a family?
