Ice Cream Ball

by Nancy Myers
(Monterey CA)


We had a family reunion at Lake Tahoe and used an Ice Cream Ball to make ice cream. You can get the mega balls on Amazon.

Fill the ball with ice and salt as per instuctions. Add 2 pints 1/2 & 1/2, 2 pints heavy cream, 1/4 cup vanilla sugar (Vanilla bean in sugar- scrape bean into sugar) (or 1/4 cup sugar and 2 T vanilla extract.)

Start rolling and shaking the ball - you can start with oldest family member to youngest family member or teams (inlaws v. outlaws) - keeping the ball in motion about 15 minutes, scrape down the sides of the tube and shake, rock and roll another 15-20 minutes.

We had a variety of toppings (fruit, chips, sprinkles, whipped cream, etc.) and cones and bowls. The FAVORITE topping was our customized M&M's - we had them printed with our family name and Lake Tahoe 2007, two tones of blue.

It was a simple activity, everyone got into the fun, and we all enjoyed our family ice cream!
