Homemade Ice Cream

On Sunday it was National Ice Cream Day. Well we didn't have enough ice cream in the freezer but I had seen how to make your own ice cream with out the fancy ice cream machine from 2 Little Hooligans. I even had all the stuff to make it without having to go shopping, hooray!  Her directions are really great so I won't go the recipe but it was easy.

We gathered the girls and the necessary things.  We didn't have the large Ziploc baggies so we used an old canister and #10 can.  We had to have enough right, double the pleasure double the fun.

 Once we got all the cream, sugar and vanilla in the baggies.  My sweet 4 year old Miss M took my directions very well.  I had the ice and salt in the #10 can and told her to put it in the can.  Well she opened the baggie of mix and started to pour it into the can with the ice.  It was a little bit of a mess.  We just mixed up a new bag and got new ice and salt and did the directions the second time.  It is funnier looking back now at her putting it in than when we were making it.

Next we rolled and rolled.  Ours took closer to 8-10 minutes each not quite the 5 minutes.
 Gloves on in the middle of summer
 The finally treat- ICE CREAM!!
It was so fun and yet another thing off of our summer bucket list down.

Hope you try Homemade Ice Cream in a Can or Bag, either way it is good!
