Elliott's Strawberry Ice Cream Pops

A while back, I wrote the post on how to make Homemade Ice Cream in a bag. My son, Elliott loves the way it tastes and loves to make it himself. I thought by now my 14 year old son would think that this is no longer cool to do... Last night, he got out the strawberries (which he wrote on his part of the grocery list) and decided to make his own ice cream.

Of course he turns away!
He's "churning" the ice cream.

What you need:

  • 1 tablespoon Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 6 tablespoons Rock Salt or Kosher Salt
  • 1 pint size plastic bag
  • 1 gallon size plastic bag
  • Ice

What you do:
Put sugar, milk and vanilla in the small bag and seal it good and tight. Fill the big bag half way with ice and the salt. Put the small bag inside the big bag with the ice and salt. Shake and roll the bags around for about 5 minutes. Wipe the salt water of the top of the small bag and open carefully. Voila! Ice Cream

The ice and salt gets really cold, so give the kids oven mits or a towel to handle the bags.

Next, he cut up the strawberries... 

Taking the ice cream bag
out of the salt and ice bag... 

Make sure you wipe off the bag
so you don't get salty water in the ice cream.

He layered the popsicle mold
alternating strawberries and ice cream.

He piped in the ice cream
by clipping the corner of the bag.

To the freezer...
