Ice Cream in a Can (or bag)

This was by far Kaitlyn’s favorite summer activity. We made ice cream in a #10 you can and even use a big ziplock bag. It was so easy and so much fun!
What you need:
  • A gallon size Freezer bag or a #10 can
  • 2 sandwich bags
  • Lot’s of ice
  • Rock salt or just plain old table salt
  • Half & half or Milk
  • Vanilla
  • Sugar
  • Spoon  and toppings if you want

  • 1 cup  Half and half or Milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar

The process

  1. Start by adding about 3 cups of ice and 1 cup of salt to the #10 can or your Ziplock bag.
  2. Next stuff one sandwich bag into another
  3. Add half and half, sugar, and vanilla into the bag and seal
  4. Put the sealed bags into the larger container and either start shaking it. If you are using a #10 can make sure there are no sharp edges on the inside. With the can you can kick the can around. Kaitlyn had fun with that part!

Long dead grass --> drought and day before cutting grass...ah well
If you  are using a bag you can easily feel and see when the cream starts to solidify, once you reach the desired consistency you are ready to enjoy.

With the can you’ll obviously have to open it up and check, but again Kaitlyn had fun checking on her ice cream.

There you have easy peasy yummy ice cream.
