pumpkin ice cream made by the kids

The kids and i have learned this fun and oh so easy way to make ice cream.
you honestly need to try this!  
 such a great idea.

you can make so many different flavors, but this one is our latest creation and it tasted fantastic.

what you need:

crushed ice
milk (any kind)
agave (any kind of sweetener you like)
pumpkin puree
pumpkin pie spice

1 gallon size ziplock bag
1 quart or sandwich size ziplock bag

we used 1/3 cup of pumpkin

3 cups of milk

less than a half teaspoon pumpkin spice

 about a tablespoon of agave

then mix it together and give it a taste.
then just add what is needed, if anything, until the kids give it a thumbs up.

pour your pumpkin mixture into the smaller ziplock bag

before closing the ziplock bag, set it on the table and push down to get all the air out, then close

take a half cup of salt...

and pour it into a gallon ziplock filled with crushed or blended ice

place your smaller ziplock bag filled with the pumpkin mixture into the gallon bag filled with ice and close

put the bag into a pillow case and have the kids shake it for 5 minutes

after five minutes it will look like this!!!

scoop it out with an ices scream scoop and your done!

isn't that so fun and easy!

happy halloween!
