So many beautiful days lately make us dream of summer.. and with being locked inside all we long for is something different. Ice-cream comes to mind and so here it is…
Making homemade ice cream is fun for the whole family, and the fresh raspberry flavor of this treat makes it a perfect summer activity. Kids can shake the bags until the liquid changes to ice cream and then enjoy the reward!

  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups coarsely crushed ice
  • 3/4 cup salt


  • Using two 1-quart resealable plastic bags, place one bag inside the other. Place the first five ingredients inside the inner bag. Seal both bags, pressing out as much air as possible.
  • Place the 2 bags in a gallon-size resealable plastic freezer bag. Add ice and salt. Seal bag, again pressing out as much air as possible.
  • Shake and knead cream mixture until thickened, about 5 minutes. (If desired, wear mittens or wrap bags in a kitchen towel while shaking to protect hands from the cold ice.)
