This homemade ice cream is great to make with kids. Using a small and a large coffee can you can recreate an ice cream maker in your own home! Not to mention this is one of the best homemade ice creams I have ever had!

Ingredients

  • 1 pasteurized egg

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon instant vanilla pudding mix

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 cup half-and-half cream

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup rock salt

  • 1 pound crushed ice

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, sugar, instant pudding, milk, half and half and vanilla. Pour the mixture into a 12 ounce size coffee can. Cover the top with plastic wrap, and then the plastic lid. Place the filled coffee can into an empty 34.5 ounce coffee can (the big ones). Fill the empty space with crushed ice, sprinkle generously with rock salt, and cover with the plastic lid.

  2. Roll the cans around on the floor for about 20 minutes. If the center of the ice cream is still soft, place the containers in the freezer to harden.
