Summer Treats

Last Saturday, we went strawberry picking. It was a nice morning. As we were sitting on the porch swing, relaxing, I mentionned wanting to make homemade strawberry ice cream. The only problem is, we don't have an ice cream maker. I then remembered an episode of Zoom, the kids show, where they made ice cream in freezer bags. Well, I found the recipe online, this is the one I used It worked fairly well. Rich and I kept ours simple and made the vanilla. Trish and Sim experimented. Trisha made cookies and cream, and Sim made strawberry cookies and cream. The only thing I would do different the next time, is that I would add my add ins before shaking in the bag. That way the ice cream would be totally ready to eat right away. All in all, it was a fun time. Trish is even wanting to make some with one of her friends easy and inexpensive activity, that ends with a yummy treat!

Jessie, I had to play with the link to get to the page.

Does it work with milk? I don't have half and half in the house but it looks really fun to try. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Thanks for telling me about the link Melody. I fixed it. I just did a quick search, and found an almost identical recipe which stated you could use milk or half and half. I'm thinking I'd like to try it with juice to make a "slushy" or granita sort of drink/dessert.
