WHAT YOU NEED:
1 cup milk
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
large (2-pound, 7-ounce) coffee can with a plastic lid
small (1-pound) coffee can with a plastic lid
HOW TO MAKE IT:
• Check with a grown-up before you start.
• First you’ll need to freeze both of the coffee cans overnight.
• The next day, mix the milk, cream and sugar together in the small coffee can.
• Put the lid on and place it inside the larger can.
• Pack the ice into the larger can around the smaller can, and sprinkle with salt so that it makes your coffee can ice cream maker really cold.
• Put the lid on the larger coffee can and start rolling it. It takes a while so be patient.
• Replace the ice when it starts to melt, and open up the can and scrape the mixture from the sides once in a while.
• Keep rolling until it’s thick.
