Homemade IceCream in a Bag

This recipe is fun for one or a ton!  That’s right, make your own ice cream in a bag.  Kids LOVE this because it is like a game.  If you are having several kids join in the fun, have them each make their own.  It is more fun that way and it keeps the serving sizes manageable for perfect ice creamy consistency.ICe Cream in a bag - enjoy
