Nothing says long hot summer days like enjoying a bowl of ice cream. A fun treat to dress up just the way you want. Pick your favorite flavors and add in your favorite toppings. The only thing that makes this favorite dessert even better, of course, is to make it yourself!!
We love this fun and easy way to make our favorite treat – ice cream in a bag!! If your looking for an activity to do with the kids, this is great!! Have an ice cream making party!
This recipe is super simple – just 5 ingredients to make it work – and the kids will have a blast watching their milk mixture turn into ice cream right before their eyes. Another perk to making your own ice cream? Those of us with milk sensitivities can you our favorite go to – a2 Milk®!
We have started using a2 Milk® in our house for this very reason. What is a2 Milk®? Well the A2 Milk® company has started producing milk exclusively from A2 cows from family owned farms. The A2 refers to the protein in the milk. Long ago, cows only produced A2 protein but as time went on and things evolved, many of them started producing the more common A1 protein which is really hard for most people to digest. All other forms of mammal’s milk (i.e. goat, sheep, human) only contain the A2-type proteins!
Even now, for my older children and for myself, regular milk needs to be limited. I am looking forward to seeing the benefits in switching to a new milk that is much easier for our bodies to tolerate!
a2 Milk® is available in half gallon cartons with an SRP of $4.49 Varieties include: whole milk, reduced fat 2%, low fat 1% and fat-free. Available throughout California in Whole Foods, Ralph’s, Sprouts, Gelson’s and more.
