Here’s a fun and simple activity that’s perfect for a hot, summer day. Homemade Ice Cream Right Now! No Machine Required! is from Simply Montessori.
The recipe is easy enough that your child can make it alone or with just a little help from you. You only need milk, vanilla, sugar, salt, ice cubes, and two ziplock bags.
I experimented with a health-food/vegan variation of the recipe by using soy milk or almond milk instead of regular milk and 3 T. honey instead of 4 T. sugar. That was yummy as well!
Do you have a new variation of the ice cream recipe?
