We All Scream For Ice Cream!

2009 234

Last week we made Ice Cream to go with our Alphabet Summer work!

This was so easy and doesn't require a machine or a lengthy list of ingredients. Here's all you need to whip up your own icy treat:

Half and Half
Whipping Cream
4 Qt. Baggies
4 Gallon Baggies

Mix 2 cups whipping cream, 2 cups Half and Half, 1/2 cup sugar, and 2 tsp vanilla.

Pour 1 cup of mixture into each Quart sized baggie. Squeeze out any air.

Put the Quart baggie inside a gallon baggie. Fill gallon baggie with 1/2 cup coarse salt and ice. Close baggie.

Then adorn your winter gloves in June and shake that baby up for 5-10 minutes.

Josie helped with this part for .05 seconds before I was left to do all the shaking.

After you're done shaking, you'll have super yummy frozen ice cream!

I was just as excited that it really froze as Josie was! Great lesson about liquid turning to solid!

We halfed the recipe and still have a ton left over. It refreezes well and tastes great!
