What do zip-top bags have to do with ice cream? You can use one to make ice cream in only ten minutes! After all, how many of us actually own an ice cream machine?
You can avoid expensive equipment, and in some simple steps, have your own ice cream in minutes. And yes, while this is a great project for children, I don’t know any adults that don’t enjoy ice cream.
Vanilla is super easy, but you’ll want to kick the fun up a notch with strawberry or chocolate flavors by adding chopped up fruit or chocolate chips. Get creative with the flavors you try!
If you’re looking for the “science” explanation, the salt lowers the freezing point of the water, which allows it to get colder than ice (about 28 degrees Fahrenheit). This super-cold water and ice mixture causes the liquid milk mixture to freeze and become solid. Just shake it! You’ll start to notice it getting thicker by simply feeling through the bag, which makes it seem like magic!
