Summer Bucket List: Incredible Ice Cream

     I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM!  What better day then today to make our very own vanilla ice cream.  I found a great post on how to do it on Growing A Jeweled Rose.

Here's what you will need:

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream or half and half
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 tsp sugar
Ice cubes
6 TBsp Kosher salt
2 Ziploc sandwich size bags
Ziploc gallon size bag

How to make it:

Pour the whipping cream, vanilla, and sugar into a tightly sealed Ziploc sandwich bag.  
Pressing the air out as you seal it.
Then put this into another lightly sealed sandwich bag.
Fill the Ziploc gallon size resealable bag half-way full of ice cubes 
and mix with the 6 TBsp of the coarse kosher salt.
Then put the sealed sandwich-size bag into the middle of the ice and seal the larger bag.
(Double up the gallon size bags as well, especially if the kiddos help out)
To make the ice cream, just start shaking the bag!  
It needs to be shaken for at least 5-10 minutes or until the ice cream forms.

Liam I even played catch with our ice cream bag!

After, what seem like FOR-EV-ER according to Liam, our ice cream was ready to enjoy!

I turned it into a yummy sundae complete with chocolate sauce and rainbow sprinkles!

He was so proud of his special dessert he made.

After a few bites...brain freeze!
Guess he was in a hurry to enjoy his treat!

It turned out so yummy, maybe we can try making chocolate or strawberry next time!
