Geek Girl Find of the Day

The end of summer is approaching fast, so it's time to squeeze in as much fun as you can. Today I came across this amazing Ice Cream Ballat Amazon.

From the website:

"With the unique Play and Freeze Ice Cream Maker, you can make ice cream while on camping trips, at picnics, barbecues, and many other places. You don't need electricity to make great tasting ice cream, but rather just add ice and rock salt in one end and ice cream mix in the other end. Then, have a ball as you shake it, pass it, or roll it around for 10 to 15 minutes. The ice cream mix can be as simple as cream, sugar, and vanilla or you can try a more adventurous flavor from the included recipe list or make up your own concoction. Made of durable polycarbonate, the Ice Cream Ball is lightweight, portable, and easy to clean."

I want one.

Damn. I bet this thing would make amazing frozen cocktails!

we use the "working" part of this at sca events to make ice cream, slushies, daiquiris, etc. not as much fun as having a cool ball to play around with, but the results are just as tasty!

we use 2 different sizes of zip locks: one bag with the mix in it, a bigger bag with the ice and rock salt. then you shake it like a polaroid picture. it's even more fun to make if you can get to boys to shake while we laugh at them. :D
