Seven-Minute Vanilla Ice Cream

Yum

Kudos to my daughter, who actually told me about this recipe and went into the kitchen to make it herself. When she told me what she was going to do, I thought "ice cream? We don't even have an ice-cream maker!" I wasn't sure what she was going to end up concocting but when she came back 7 minutes later and told me to take a bite, I was speechless (because my mouth was full of ice cream)! I immediately went into the kitchen to try it myself. Within 7 minutes, I was eating more ice cream! You just have to try this! Go! Now! Make ice cream and be happy! :)

Ingredients:

- 2, gallon-sized Ziploc bags
- ice cubes
- 6 Tbs table salt
- 1 cup 1% milk
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 Tbs sugar


In one gallon-sized bag, fill it 1/3 full with ice cubes and add the salt. Set aside while you prepare ingredients in the other Ziploc bag. Add milk, vanilla, and sugar to the other Ziploc bag. Squeeze out most of the air and Ziploc tightly (so the salt does not seep in). Fold bag over in half and insert it into the Ziploc bag with the ice. Press out some of the air and close tightly. Shake bag vigorously for 5 to 7 minutes, using gloves or oven mits, because the bag gets very cold! Open bag of ice and remove the other bag of ice cream! Dish out ice cream with a spoon into a bowl and go crazy! Add a tablespoon of sugar-free chocolate syrup and some fun candy sprinkles, if desired.
