Making Home Made Ice Cream

This post is originally from my other blog

To conclude Fitness February make some homemade ice cream!!!

Today I made homemade ice cream for the first time ever!

It was a lot of shaking basically and considering I made 2 1/2 batches, 1 for each child and 1/2 one for me because it didn't turn out right, I think I burned more than enough calories :)

Making homemade ice cream is something that I've wanted to do since I was a kid and I finally found out how to do it and did it! The process is really easy and I just used Youtube and How Cast to instruct me on where to get started.
The only things you need are:
  • Plastic bags(2)
  • Milk
  • Sugar
  • Ice
  • Salt
  • any flavor that you want to add
After combining some of the ingredients you shake for what feels like FOREVER and then enjoy!

My home made vanilla ice cream !

The ice cream batches that I made for the kids came out great but mine, strawberry, didn't come out too well. I think its because I doubled the ingredients and was tired and my arms hurt from all the shaking. Instead I settled for an authentic shake, since I shook it, get it... lol, with cut up strawberries in it and it was actually really good.
