Easy Ice Cream!

I am Lactose Intolerant, and I don't get to enjoy ice cream anymore. Yes, I COULD take the pills that help the lactose become more digestible. BUT, I don't. Just more money. Plus, I don't miss it THAT much. Well, sometimes I do. Like during the summer. Hot evening, sittin' around enjoying time with the family.

And to those who don't know, Soy Ice Cream is very pricey! For a pint of soy ice cream, it is WELL OVER $4. I can't justify that, not even for a special treat.

Well, I decided to try to make some myself! And it is SOOOO easy. AND, you can make regular ice cream with this too, and I have been told it is good also.

SO here is the Easy Ice Cream Recipe (for Soy or Regular Ice Cream):

1 C. milk or soy milk
2 Tbsp. sugar
***You can make this chocolate by adding chocolate syrup or using chocolate milk or soy milk.

Combine the milk and the sugar in a sandwich baggie. Push as much air out as you can, then seal tightly.

In a bigger gallon baggie, add the sandwich baggie with your milk mixture, 2 cups crushed ice, and 3 Tbsp. table salt. Seal the gallon baggie tightly.

The next part, requires a little exercise before the treat! Shake those baggies! Shake the baggies for about 5 minutes. The after 5 minutes, carefully open the baggies and dump into a dish. Enjoy!

I have to tell you I used chocolate soy milk, and it tasted exactly like the expensive stuff in the store! Quick, delicious and inexpensive! Love it!

This is great fun........I did this years ago, and it really does work great!!!
A few years ago, I got one of those ice cream balls.....where you can roll it around to make ice cream. It also worked, but took quite a long time of rolling/shaking/throwing around!!!
