Ice Cream in a Bag

Being lactose-intolerant,
I had to give up ice cream long ago.
Lil' Guy is dairy-free,
so it's a no-no for him too.

We don't let that stop us from
enjoying a bowl of
delicious homemade "ice cream".
A little recipe like this can go a long way
in satisfying
one's summertime cravings.

Since we don't do dairy,
we substitute rice or almond milk.

Rock salt is poured into the larger bag...

along with some ice.

Your beverage of choice goes into the smaller bag.
Seal it up tight!

The smaller bag goes into the larger bag.
Shake, shake, shake!

You'll see it transform right before your eyes!

The best part is
you've already worked off the calories
with all that shakin'!

Ice Cream in a Bag

6 T rock salt
ice (just enough to cover the bottom of the larger bag)
1/2 C beverage of choice
1 t vanilla
nuts, chocolate chips or fruit as desired

Place rock salt and ice into gallon-sized bag.
Pour "milk", vanilla and additions into smaller bag.
Seal both bags very well.
Shake 5 minutes.
