I found this IP icecream recipe on an IP clinic's website on Facebook. It was time for my chocolate drink so I decided to give it a go. DEAD SERIOUS it tastes exactly like homemade chocolate icecream. Can't wait to give the vanilla a try. YUMMMMMMMMM

1 IP drink packet (for example, chocolate drink packet for chocolate ice cream)
½ TSP of vanilla extract
1 packet of sweetener (Truvia, Splenda, etc)
1 cup of water
½ cup of course salt
(Plus a large (gallon) and small (sandwich) sealable ziplock bag. (Finnish friends, you can find at Iso Omena Citymarket in the US food section)

1. Put 1 cup of water into IP shaker – add in vanilla and sweetener – then the IP drink packet and shake until well blended. Pour mixture into small sandwich plastic bag. SEAL TIGHT.

2. Take a gallon sized plastic bag and fill up half way with ice cubes. Pour ½ cup of salt into the bag. Place the sealed sandwich bag with the drink mixture inside the ice cube bag. MAKE SURE BOTH BAGS ARE SEALED TIGHT.

3. Now here come the little arm workout! Shake, shake, shake for 8 minutes. I usually stop at around 5 minutes and check to see the progress. At about 5 minutes the mixture should be partially frozen – kind of looking like a slushy. (Try pot holders while shaking the bag because it’s cold to hold onto!)

4. At 8 minutes you are going to have a hard bag of ‘ice cream’! Take out of the salty ice bag and very quickly rinse the bag off under cold water.

I saw this on Steve's facebook page, and tried it with the wildberry yogurt and the pina colada drink. Both were really good, and as an added bonus, it gave me a bit of an arm work out, so all around great :D

Has anybody tried these with the pudding mixes? Curious if they will work as well as the drink mixes. I have more pudding packets than anything else.

Sound's good, but time consuming!

Would probably work in an ice cream maker or speciality blenders if you have one of these.

Oh yeah. Works with the pudding mix, too!

Great IDEA! I have an ice cream would I tweak this to work in there, any ideas? I'd like to use the dark chocolate pudding.
