“This homemade ice cream is great to make with kids. Using a small and a large coffee can you can recreate an ice cream maker in your own home! Not to mention this is one of the best homemade ice creams I have ever had!”

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, sugar, instant pudding, milk, half and half and vanilla. Pour the mixture into a 12 ounce size coffee can. Cover the top with plastic wrap, and then the plastic lid. Place the filled coffee can into an empty 34.5 ounce coffee can (the big ones). Fill the empty space with crushed ice, sprinkle generously with rock salt, and cover with the plastic lid.
  2. Roll the cans around on the floor for about 20 minutes. If the center of the ice cream is still soft, place the containers in the freezer to harden.

This is a fun activity for the kids - especially when camping. To the previous reviewer, the recipe calls for a pasteurized egg (I use Eggbeaters) so you don't have to worry about cooking it.

I tried this recipe out at a recent 4-H club meeting. Watching the girls have a good time while they rolled the cans was fun, and they even ended up creating several games and contests during the rolling. The highlight of the day was (of course) getting to eat the results of all the play. It was a big hit!
