When Lily naps, Cooper and I pick a project to work on together. Normally we bake or cook, but it was hot, so we decided to try to make our own ice cream at home in a zip-lock bag. It worked great! You must try it if you haven't! We used half a cup of organic whole milk mixed with 1 Tablespoon of organic sugar and a teaspoon of organic cocoa powder in a quart sized zip lock. We then added 2 trays of ice cubes to a gallon zip lock baggie and 1/3 cup salt. Slip the smaller bag in the ice bag and shake for 5-8 minutes. You can feel it getting harder pretty quickly. We snipped the baggie with scissors and squeezed our chocolate ice cream into a bowl, added sprinkles, and voila! Homemade delicious chocolate ice cream! Can't wait to try some more flavors!
