What you would say it I told you there is a way to make delicious, homemade ice cream in just 10 minutes?
And if I said it only costs about $0.55/cup?
And if I said it could be made from food storage?
And if I said you could make just as much as you wanted to eat right then?
Can you tell I’m a bit excited about this?
I have lots of fond memories from my childhood that surround homemade ice cream and just ice cream in general. I think it is a favorite treat for my parents and every one of my siblings. I often crave it, but don’t have any in the fridge (because I try not to buy it or I know I will eat the entire carton in a matter of days).
Well, after reading about homemade ice cream in a bag, and homemade ice cream with Thrive instant milk, I decided to combine the two ideas. Boy am I ever glad I did! This was quick, easy, fun for my kids, and so very delicious! Plus, since it is made with non-fat milk, it is fat free! My only tip is to be sure you use the THRIVE instant milk as it is hands down the best instant milk I’ve ever tasted. It really does taste just like fresh.

You completed a few nice points there. I did a search on the theme and found nearly all persons will consent with your blog.
I stumbled on this while looking for the can version. Looking forward to giving it a try. Thanks!
You are welcome Leah! Good luck!
You can also do this as "kick the can" ice cream, a trick that would nicely use a pantry can containing the ingredients secured with a rubber band, placed inside a #10 can that has the gap filled with ice and salt. Kids roll the can between them, which does all of the mixing for you without the cold hands!
You can also place in a pre-frozen ice cream maker and add some mix-ins for more flavor options. M&M's anyone?
