Coffee Can Ice Cream

Coffee Can Ice Cream
Surprise - you can use one of your old coffee cans to whip up a batch of - you guessed it - fresh, delicious ice cream! Cool, huh?

1 cup milk
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla (Learn how to make your own vanilla: Homemade Vanilla )

You need 1 large and 1 small coffee can ( both empty) with lids. Put the ingredients in the small can and mix; put on lid, making sure it is sealed securely. Put the small can inside the large can. Fill the empty space at the sides of the large can with ice cubes-crush if need be. Pour some table salt over the ice. (Add more ice and salt as needed.) Put lid on large can. Now the fun part-roll the can back and forth between two people. Remove the lids every so often. Scrape the frozen ice cream off the sides of the little can and add more ice and/or salt to the larger can. It generally takes about 15 or 20 minutes to freeze-sometimes longer.
