Easy Homemade Ice Cream

Don’t own an ice cream maker but yet you crave the stuff? Or maybe you do own an ice cream maker but don’t want to make a whole gallon for just 2 people. Well, here’s the solution to both problems. All you need is an empty 12 oz. coffee can, an empty 34.5 oz coffee can (both with lids) and the following recipe.

Ice Cream In A Can:

1 egg
½ cup sugar
1 tbsp instant vanilla pudding mix
1 cup milk
1 cup half-and-half cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup rock salt
1 pound crushed ice

In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, sugar, instant pudding, milk, half and half and vanilla. Pour the mixture into a 12 ounce size coffee can. Cover the top with plastic wrap, and then the plastic lid. Place the filled coffee can into an empty 34.5 ounce coffee can (the big ones). Fill the empty space with crushed ice, sprinkle generously with rock salt, and cover with the plastic lid.
Roll the cans around on the floor for about 20 minutes. If the center of the ice cream is still soft, place the containers in the freezer to harden.
