20 little girls at a sparks meeting, 40 ziplock bags, 2 litres of homo milk 20 squirts of Nestle quick mix (choc, vanilla and strawberry). A production line and 5 minutes of shake your booty to achieve sublime happiness in a bag! It really does work; with milk, cream, skim even (so I've heard) with lactose free milk. We had 1 cup of ice and 1/2 cup of salt per girl.

I run a youth program and each child made their own ice cream. It was great! I gave one direction at a time and the kids were quick to take turns adding their ingredients. I learned we don't need as much rock salt and to flavor it more the youth had a choice between adding chocolate chips or broken Oreo cookies.
