So much fun and it was very yummy. I did this in my "Just Desserts" class that I teach at a middle school. It was perfect for the group of 12 tween girls. It kept them busy the whole class period. 10 mins going over the recipe and what the rock salt is needed for, 5 mins getting every thing in the zipper bags and about 12 minutes shaking and squeezing. Last 15 mins of class was basically an ice cream party, adding toppings and then a very easy clean up. It was a great success with the girls and the ice cream was delicious. They all took home little bags of extra rock salt so they could do the recipe again at home. I wish we would have doubled the recipe though. The 1/2 cup was hardly enough to fill the cake cones. This recipe is very flexible. I had lots of options for the girls. I had a few do strawberry ice cream by adding a spoon full of strawberry topping, 2 did chocolate by adding in a table spoon of chocolate syrup (these took a few more minutes to harden up I would suggest less than a table spoon,) and quite a few did mix-ins after the ice cream was done by adding sprinkles or chocolate chips to the small bag and then squishing it around. When it was time to put the ice cream in our cones, we cut off a corner from the bottom of our zipper bags and squeezed it out like soft serve and it was fantastic. I highly suggest this recipe and if you are doing it with a class of kids, you will not be disappointed (especially because clean up is very minimal) and it is a very economical project that teaches a little bit of chemistry mixed with a yummy treat.

Love it! Tastes great as written. It's also good with cacao powder added in.

Hello. I am a college student and everyone knows that college students have NOTHING in the fridge. So I like most have nothing. So I was at the store and bought some soy milk because cow milk was WAY to much. I bought the vanilla kind cause it had flavor. Then I came across this recipe and thought I would try it with soy milk so I did because I of course had NO ice cream. I followed the recipe and it turned out FANTASTIC. Because I used Soy milk with vanilla, I did not have to add any, and btw I did not even have any. But overall it turned out FANTASTIC. Love it and SOO much cheaper than any Ice cream and SOO much better for you. I am gonna try it next with Splenda.
