Homemade Ice cream Deliciousness

 

Goodness me, if I wasn't watching what I eat right now.... well, I'd be watching myself eat THAT. Fast. As it was, I was lucky enough to see my little gal eat some homemade ice cream she made herself. She was totally thrilled with the fact that she did it.... and that she could then EAT it.  Here's the recipe I found on this website:

*1 tablespoon sugar

*1/2 cup half & half (or milk)
*1/4 teaspoon vanilla
*6 tablespoons rock salt
*2 Quart-size Ziploc plastic bag
*1 Gallon-size Ziploc plastic bag 
Fill the large bag half full of ice, and add the rock salt. Seal the bag. Put the milk, vanilla, and sugar into the small bag, and seal it. Place the small bag inside the remaining small ziplock try to get as much air out of the second bag before sealing it, and then place it all in the large one and seal again carefully. Shake, rattle, and roll that mixture until it turns to ice cream (5-10 minutes). When you're ready to take it out of the larger bag: rinse the small outer ziplock in the sink to get off any rocksalt residue and then you can pull out the one with the ice cream. Plop it into a bowl and serve it with any and all extras you and your kiddo may desire. Miss Chelsea recommends: To make a larger amount, try doubling the recipe. Anything larger might be too big for kids to pick-up, because the ice itself is quite heavy. 

**I would also recommend having your child wear gloves so that their little hands don't get too chilly. **

Have Fun!!!!
