Homemade Ice Cream In a Coffee Can!

Awhile back I found a few recipes on how to make homemade ice cream in a bag. Z and I tried that with much success! It was actually my first time making homemade ice cream too! So, it was nice that we both experienced making it together. We had so much fun making it I began searching for other homemade ice cream recipes. I seen a few made in machines, on the stove, some you would put in the freezer, others with eggs or half and half and some in a coffee can. What? a coffee can? I opted for the same "in a bag" recipe and wanted to make it in the coffee can because it sounded cool! All you need is a few simple ingredients that most already have on hand and a child who's eager enough for ice cream that they will
kick around a coffee can for 30 minutes!

Ice Cream In a Can
Adapted from teachnet

1 Cup Milk
2 Tbs Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla
Ice
Salt
1 large and 1 small coffee can
Tape

If you would like it chocolate flavored add 1 dash of chocolate pudding powder or 1 tbs chocolate syrup.


What you will need


My little helper



Put the mixture inside the smaller coffee can tape lid to make sure it doesn't leak.
Place small can inside larger can. Fill with ice and sprinkle salt!

Hmm... Make sure your cans fit well together.
Otherwise you will need more tape....

Ready to roll!
