Five Minute Ice Cream

Fun for kids and moms (yes, even dads).
It's a good way to get those wiggles out and then have a treat.

Let each kid make their own and put whatever flavors they want into it. It would be a great way to keep the kids busy at a summer play date or barbecue, and the adults are likely to have just as much fun with it too.


Five Minute Ice Cream
makes 1 serving

1/2 cup whole milk or cream
1 tbsp sweetener
1 tsp vanilla extract
6 tbsp Kosher salt
2 cups ice
1 sandwich size ziplock bag AND 1 quart size ziplock bag

In the sandwich size bag combine the milk, sweetener, and vanilla extract and seal the bag tightly. In the quart size bag add the ice and Kosher salt. Place the smaller bag into the larger bag and seal the larger bag tightly.

Are you ready?  Now shake the bag as hard as you can (without popping it open) until it becomes the consistency of ice cream. Having a dish towel on hand to hold around the bags made it easier as the ice does make your hands very cold quickly.

It should take about five minutes before the ice cream begins to form, but may take a little longer if you have some slower shakers. 

Serve and enjoy. You can also add other fixings into your ice cream such as fruit or candy. You can add them at the end, but they would be just as good in the mixture.

The above recipe makes one serving, to double the recipe, add double the ingredients in the smaller bag and put 3 cups ice and 9 tbsp salt in the bigger bag)
