Safe Food Preparation
Have students bring different kinds of fruit from home to add to their ice cream. A quarter-cup of mashed bananas or strawberries, raisins, or another kind of juice can be substituted for the orange juice used in the original activity.
Students also could bring chocolate chips, sprinkles, etc. to add to their ice cream.
Invite students to share the ice cream recipe—and the safe food preparation procedures learned in the activity—with their friends and family members.
