I for Ice Cream

08 Jun

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.

Ingredients for ice cream

1/2 cup whipping cream

1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence

1 TABLESPOON maple syrup

a pinch of salt

Mixing ingredients in can surrounded by ice cubes

Mix the above ingredients in a metal can. We used an empty evaporated milk can. Stir until everything dissolves.

Sprinkle lots of salt. I covered the metal can to avoid any chances of salty ice cream.

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 🙂

Delicious homemade ice cream

To complement this recipe we read this book.

A simple story of sharing ice cream between three friend. Sharing is always a topic in our home.
