I really love me some ice cream and since yesterday was National Ice Cream Day, I just had to have my favorite sweet treat. To join the celebration in a fun and special way, I decided to go LIVE on Instagram for the very first time while trying to make ice cream in a bag, which is also something I had never, ever done before! I mean, why not try two new things at once, right?
Growing up the only way we made homemade ice cream was with a machine, lots of ice and rock salt. However, I recently discovered some simpler methods that sounded right up my alley. One of the methods (which also seems super easy) requires a mixer, which, unfortunately, I don’t have at this time. However, the most basic method I found only requires some Ziploc bags! So, I dug around the internet a little more to read a few recipes and comments and put together a concoction of my own.
I was really excited to be trying out this easy-peasy recipe and was also looking forward to saving the video so I could share it with you. However, since it was the very first time I went LIVE on Instagram, I missed pressing the “save” link on the videos. 🙄 So, all I have to share with you is the photo above. Total bummer. Mi dispiace. 😕
Regardless of the technical snafu, it was a lot of fun to go LIVE and test out this super simple recipe. I highly recommend having some fun and making ice cream with this method… even if you have an ice cream maker. It’s an old-school change of pace, and, if you have kids, I bet they will have fun with it, too! Give it a whirl sometime this summer and enjoy!
Oh, and if you aren’t already doing so, follow me on Instagram so that you can say hi next time I go LIVE! 😁
