We All Scream for Ice Cream July is National Ice Cream Month. People of all ages love ice cream! After all, what’s not to love? It’s creamy, sweet and delicious. Ice cream is a favorite summertime treat. We know it may contain extra calories from fat and sugar so we want to watch portions for good health and to be able to fit into our summer wardrobe! Here is a fantastic recipe to make your own fat-free ice cream.

Ice Cream-In-A-Bag Serves 1

All you need: 1 cup skim milk 2 tablespoons sugar 2 tablespoons non-fat evaporated milk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 quart resealable bag 1 gallon resealable bag 4 cups ice (crushed or cubes) 2/3 cup salt

All you do: 1. Combine milk, sugar, evaporated milk and vanilla in a 1-quart resealable plastic bag. Press out all the air and seal tightly. In a 1-gallon resealable plastic bag, combine the ice and salt. 2. Add the sealed quart-sized bag to the gallon bag. 3. Seal the gallon bag. Wrap in a towel, knead and shake for 5-7 minutes or until milk mixture is thickened to a soft-serve ice cream texture. Serve immediately.

Variations:    

After the ice cream has been kneaded and prior to serving, stir in 1 tablespoon of mini chocolate chips. Substitute other flavorings for vanilla, such as ½ teaspoon mint, coconut or almond extract. These are a bit more “powerful” than vanilla, so start with ½ teaspoon and add more, if desired. Substitute non-fat Greek yogurt for the evaporated milk. Substitute soy, almond or coconut milk for skim milk. The mixture will be a little less thick.
