Do you know that milk can be made into a lot of things?. In this piece of writing you will learn lots about  milk like making your own ice cream!  I am going to teach you how to make your very own vanilla ice cream! It will be scrumdidlyumptious!
Things you need
  • 30g of sugar
  • 2 cups of salt
  • ¼ of a cap of vanilla
  • ½ a cup of milk
  • Crushed ice
  • One big zip lock bag and one small zip lock bag.
Steps to making your ice cream
  • Grab your big zip lock bag and get someone to pour the crushed ice until the bag is ½ full.
  • You will now need to grab  your big bag.  ½ full with ice then pour in your 2 cups of salt to make the ice colder so it’s a bit like a freezer.
  • You have completed your first two steps! Grab your small zip lock bag.
  • You will then need to carefully pour your milk into the small bag.

  • Take your ¼ of a cap of vanilla and swiftly tip it into your bag of milk then seal your bag.
  • Take the sealed small bag and put it in the bi bag that has the ice and the salt in, then seal the big bag that will now have your small bag inside.
  • Shake the bags until the milk inside turns ice creamy.
  • Most importantly enjoy!

WALT write instructions for the reader so they can make their own vanilla ice cream. Next time I could of added more detail into the steps so they were easyer(easier) to follow. I was challenged by beginning my steps with a verb. I think that the ice cream was good apart from the fact that it tasted salty. I think some of the salt got in the ice cream bag. We were all taking turns at taking pictures if the steps and what it should look like. I would like to thank Mrs H for arranging for us to make ice cream. Thank you Mrs H if you are reading this!

  1. This is a very interesting read Faith. I had no idea how you made ice cream from such simple ingredients and without using a freezer. I love your 'scrumdidlyumptious' word - we say it a lot, but I'd never seen it written down before. That's exactly how I would have spelled it too. :) xx
