Shake 'n Make Ice Cream

My oldest E asked me if we could make this recipe she saw in her magazine.  Each month our church put out a magazine for kids called "The Friend" and it was in it.  She was so excited and we actually happened to have everything on hand to make it, so I said yes.  

My only recommendation outside of the recipe instructions is to wear gloves while shaking the bag.  We almost froze our fingers off.  This makes a soft serve ice cream, but if you pop it into the freezer for awhile after you make it, it hardens up!  Super yummy!  My kids had so much fun we might have to do it again later in the summer!

From "The Friend" magazine - June 2010

6 tablespoons rock salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 sandwich size bag
1 gallon size plastic bag

1.  Fill gallon bag half full with ice, then add rock salt.
2.  Pour sugar, milk and vanilla in the sandwich bag and seal it.
3.  Place the small bag inside of the large bag.  Seal and then shake gently for 5-7 minutes.  Enjoy!
