Ice Cream in a Bag
by Kathy and Bruce Jacobs
Looking for a great activity, as well as a treat the kids will eat? Make ice cream or icees at your next outing!
This recipe snacks one kid.
- 1/2 cup milk (it doesn't matter what kind, whole, 2%, chocolate, etc.)
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon flavoring (flavor suggestions below)
- Root Beer
- Add ingredients to a pint size zipper freezer bag and zip shut.
- Place that bag in a larger (quart or larger) zipper bag and add ice to outside bag until bag is half way full.
- Add about 6 Tablespoons salt (rock or regular) to the outer bag.
- Zip outer bag shut and shake, turn, toss, and mix the bag.
- In about 5-10 minutes you will have cold hands and yummy ice cream.
If members of the group are allergic to milk, make ices instead! Substitute juice or juice drinks for milk.
- Don't double this, it doesn't work.
- Suggest ice cream makers wear mittens or gloves. Their hands will get very cold.
- Be sure to wipe or rinse all the salt off the small bag before you open it. Otherwise, you will have salty ice cream instead of sweet.
