After reading the post about making your own butter, I thought others might be interested in this unique way to make ice cream. I haven't tried this my self but it doesn't require a whole lot of ingredients so it's not very expensive if it doesn't work. The kids might have fun with it.

1. Measure 1 cup of milk (whole or 2 per cent works best) or cream and carefully pour into sandwich size zippered plastic bag.
2. Add 1½ tablespoons of sugar and ½ teaspoon of vanilla to milk in plastic bag. Make sure bag is tightly sealed!
3. Place 5 cups of ice cubes into gallon size zippered plastic bag.
4. Add ¼ cup of table salt to ice in plastic bag.
5. Place sealed bag of milk mixture in bag of ice and tightly seal ice bag.
6. Gently shake ice bag for about three to five minutes.
7. Remove ice cream bag from ice bag, wiping off salt from outside of bag.

Enjoy vanilla ice cream right from the bag or spoon into bowls or cones.
Bag can be placed in freezer for several hours if harder ice cream is desired.
Here are some fun ideas to flavor your ice cream:
Make chocolate ice cream by adding chocolate syrup or using chocolate milk!
Chocolate ice cream quickly becomes Rocky Road by adding marshmallows
and nuts.
All different kinds of fruit flavors of ice cream can be made by adding fresh,
frozen or canned fruit. Try strawberry, peach, banana or a wild new combination.
Bits of your favorite cookies or candy can be stirred into your ice cream to concoct your own favorite flavor!

Has anybody tried this yet?

I also wonder how well it would work with the lighter milks like 1%.

My stomach doesn't react well to higher fat content milks and ice creams unfortunately.

I've been with friends who have done this but used soup and coffee cans with snap on lids so that they could throw it around like a football to mix up the ingredients.

You can also buy a set up that is like a soccer ball so the kids can make ice cream while they play.

Nothing beats homemade ice cream and it's even better when it's fun to make.
