Family Fun Days - Homemade Ice Cream in a bag.

It is Friday which means time to think about this weeks  Family Fun Day. 

Family Fun Days is the opportunity to  create one simple yet family bonding experience each weekend such as movie night, attending a local event. having a pic-nic in the park or making a new recipe and enjoying it together as a family. Keeping it simple while having fun.

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 bag
 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?
