Homemade Shake & Make Ice Cream

Here's a fun summer activity for the kids...Homemade Ice Cream!  This recipe doesn't require an ice cream machine, just some good old fashioned shaking.  Growing up, our family had an ice cream machine with a hand crank.  I remember loving that soft, homemade ice cream.  This shake and make ice cream isn't quite the same but certainly easier, cheaper and fun for the kids.

This is a great summer treat.  My boys enjoyed making their own ice cream.

Let the shaking begin!


We all decided to make chocolate ice cream by adding chocolate syrup to the milk before we started the shaking.

Little ones might want to wear winter gloves while shaking the bag because hands get cold!
