“I hate ice cream,” said no one ever. It’s no secret that everyone loves ice cream, but some store-bought pints or ice cream shop scoops can get pretty expensive.
Why not turn this cold treat into a cheap project with your family or friends?
Here’s what you’ll need (besides a jar, of course):
- 1 c. heavy cream
- 1 1/2 tbsp. sugar
- 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
With a mason jar, mix some heavy cream, sugar and vanilla. Screw on the lid and shake hard for 5 minutes. It should double in size and thicken up at this point.
Wrap with a wet paper towel, place the jar in the freezer for a few hours, and that’s it, you have a delicious vanilla ice cream everyone is gonna love!
This recipe is a simple base for a ton of flavors. For chocolate, add some cocoa powder. For mint, add some green food coloring and mint extract instead of vanilla.
For strawberry, add strawberry syrup and/or chopped or blended strawberries. For cookies and cream, crush up some Oreos and add those in.
The possibilities are endless! As the heat turns up, you’ll get a way to cool off and a fun project all in one. You can thank us later.
Give this a shot yourself and you’re sure to impress all of your friends!
