DS2’s name starts with an I. We had to make something special and different in its process. ICE CREAM! We used a recipe I found in Kinder Krunchies – Healthy Snack Recipes for Children by Karen S. Jenkins. I double the recipe as per below.
The ingredients and steps.
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 TABLESPOON maple syrup
a pinch of salt
Mix the above ingredients in a metal can. We used an empty evaporated milk can. Stir until everything dissolves.
Place the can in a larger container surrounded by ice cubes (we placed ours in the ice bowl right from the beginning). Sprinkle with lots of salt.
The instruction is to stir every 5 minutes for 30 minutes. Ours took about an hour before looking like ice cream. Alhamdulillah DS2 was very patient throughout the whole process. Possibly this was the first recipe we have done that he has been this patient. The things ice cream can do to children🙂
To complement this recipe we read this book.
