About: Architectural Designer and Volunteer Firefighter

This Instructable will teach you how to make your own ice cream from common ingredients and items. You can make many flavors and it is a fun,quick activity with family and friends.

Step 1: Supplies

All you need is...
Milk or Half and Half
Vanilla Extract(or choc. syrup, strawberry syrup,etc depending on desired flavor)
A big coffee can
A small coffee can that will fit inside the big one, or a ziplock baggy like I used.
And just ten minutes of time

Step 2: Preparing the Ice Cream

In the ziplock baggy or small coffee can, add:
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon flavoring(vanilla extract, etc.)
1 tablespoon sugar
and mix it all up.

For more quantity of icecream, multiple everything by the same number throughout. Ex. for twice the icecream, multiple everything by two.

Step 3: Drop It Low, the Temperature That Is.

In the big coffee can, add snow and about 6 to 7 table spoons of salt. Make sure there is room enough in the can for your baggy of ice cream. Shake up the can to evenly disperse the salt. Now add your baggy to the can and cover with a little more snow so that it is surrounded by snow. Wait about ten minutes, leaving the coffee can outside in the snow. You can roll around the coffee can to make the ice cream solidify quicker.

Step 4: I Scream, You Scream.

We all scream ice cream! Retrieve your ice cream from the can and enjoy! Mine melted because I was writing up this Instructable while making it, but its delicious anyways.Thanks for reading my Instructable, please vote for me in the Snow contest, hope this inspired you!
