You Scream, I Scream, We all Scream for Ice Cream!

      Ah, it’s summer and the urge to eat ice cream is here!  We all need to take a break sometimes and what better way to cool off but with some ice cream.  Forget endlessly cranking the handle of an ice-cream maker. After combining the ingredients, each guest can simply shake up his or her own pouch of soft serve--and it's done in just 5 minutes. (recipe from the website)


2 tablespoons sugar 

1 cup half and half 

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 

1/2 cup salt (The bigger the granules, the better. Kosher or rock salt works best, but table salt is fine.) 

Ice cubes (enough to fill each gallon-size bag about half full) 

1 pint-size ziplock bag 

1 gallon-size ziplock bag 

1. Combine the sugar, half and half, and vanilla extract in the pint-size bag and seal it tightly.

2. Place the salt and ice in the gallon-size bag, then place the sealed smaller bag inside as well. Seal the larger bag. Now shake the bags until the mixture hardens (about 5 minutes). Feel the small bag to determine when it's done.

3. Take the smaller bag out of the larger one, add mix-ins, and eat the ice cream right out of the bag. Easy cleanup too! Serves 1.

     I've done this with the grandkids and they had a lot of fun making and eating this ice cream!
