Ice cream in a bag

As the weather gets warmer we love to make Ice cream in a bag.
 Fast, fun and yummy.

Here's the line up.... EASY PEASY....

·         1/2 cup milk
·         1/2 teaspoon vanilla
·         1 1/2 tablespoons sugar (or to taste)
·         6 tablespoons rock salt

Put milk, vanilla and sugar into a pint or quart-sized freezer bag. Seal well.
Fill a large, gallon-sized freezer bag with ice. Add the rock salt. 
Put the smaller bag into the larger bag and seal.
Shake, shake, shake and mix until the ice cream thickens, about 10 minutes. You can also let the kids gently throw the bag back and forth to help mix the ice cream. The bag gets very cold, so you might want to use towels to hold it. Remove smaller bag and rinse off salt. Cut the end off of the small bag and squeeze into a bowl. Add toppings like sprinkles if you wish. Enjoy!!! 

*this is definitely "soft serve" ice cream and it does melt rather quickly... almost didn't make it through the photo! You can serve it in a cup for kids so they can drink the end.
** My kids like to add food coloring! ;)
Makes 1 serving.

 Send the kids, and the dog ;) outside to run around the house a few times while they shake their bags.
