LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Get the kids together and measure out the following ingredients. 

1 package frozen fruit (it must be frozen)
cup sugar
2/3 cup heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla

Combine the fruit, sugar, cream and vanilla in a blender until it reaches the consistency of soft ice cream. Following this, it's ready to eat, or you may freeze it for later. Freezing it will make the mixture harden and give a more natural, ice cream consistency. 

Alternative recipe for kids:

As an alternative, kids can make their own using this recipe. 

1 tbsp sugar 
cup of either milk, half and half, or heavy cream
tsp vanilla
6 tbsp rock salt
1 Ziploc bag (small size, sealable)
1 large Ziploc bag (1 gallon size, sealable)
gallon quantity of ice cubes

Start by filling the large plastic bag half-full with ice cubes. Add the rock salt. Seal this bag while you prepare the smaller one. 

Next, put your milk or cream into the small bag along with the sugar and vanilla. Seal this bag. Unseal the large bag and put in the small. Now reseal the large bag. 

Shake the bag for five minutes. This is a great job for a kid, just make sure you supervise and that the bag isn't too heavy. 

After five minutes of shaking, the small bag should have your ice cream ready to eat! A cup of milk or cream should make 1 scoop of ice cream. Add more if you want to make more, but understand that adding to the measures also makes a larger project. Only older kids will be able to manage shaking a larger bag without making a mess. 

Also, this recipe can be flavored with chocolate syrup, frozen fruit (blended) or any other flavoring. Feel free to experiment and try your own flavors!
