Keep reading to find out how to make your own ice cream in a jar:
- 1 Cup Of Heavy Cream
- 1 Teaspoon Of Vanilla Extract
- 1 1/2 Teaspoon Of Sugar
- Dash Of Salt
- Start by adding the cream, vanilla, sugar and salt into your glass mason jar. Secure the lid tightly once all ingredients are mixed together.
- For the fun part, shake your mason jar vigorously 5-8 minutes (this is a great time for a dance party with the family). To check if the ingredients have mixed together well, you should see a white milky consistency and the ice cream should cover the back of a spoon.
- From here, you will need to freeze your ice cream in the jar for at least three hours or until it has reached your desired texture.
A fun way to serve this ice cream is to make a few mason jars for each member of the family and make custom sundaes for each person. Top with sprinkles, fruit, chocolate syrup or nuts!
