It gets very hot here in Houston, TX in the summer. One fun way to cool off is with ice cream! This is a simple technique to make ice cream in about 5 minutes and is great fun to do with kids! Plus, you get to burn some calories making it, so there is a little less guilt with eating them.
Step 1: Materials and the Video
• Flavored, non-dairy coffee creamers (you can find these on the coffee aisle of your grocery store and they come in all sorts of flavors - I'm partial to the french vanilla. Plus, even if you are lactose intolerant, you can still enjoy!)
• Rock Salt (sometimes sold as Ice Cream Salt)
• Plastic containers (I used some containers in which I get take-out soup – about a quart size)
• Gloves or a dish towel (you will want these as the containers get VERY cold)
So here is a video that shows you the whole process as well as quickly explains the process behind making the ice cream. I've also written it out below to help...
