Yield: 4 Servings


  • 1 cup Organic Valley cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • Crushed ice
  • 8 Tablespoons rock salt
  • Large plastic jar with lid (or a coffee can)

First, put your cream, extract and sugar into a heavy duty zip-top bag. Squeeze out the air as much as you can. Fill your plastic container or coffee can half full of ice, and add the rock salt to the ice. Put the top on the container and shake it up a little. Open your container and put your zipped bag of creamy stuff inside. Now seal the jar or can up, and go crazy! Roll it all over the floor. Toss it back and forth, really shake it up! After about 8 minutes of constant movement, you’ll have some of the best ice cream you’ve ever tasted. And, you made it yourself.
