1/2 cup coconut milk or yogurt (or milk/light cream)
A pinch of stevia powder (or 1-2 Tbsp. sugar)
Flavoring of your choice*
1/2 cup salt
Pint-sized Ziplock bag
Gallon Ziplock bag
Mix the milk/yogurt, sweetener, and flavoring together and pour it in the pint-sized bag. Make sure it’s well sealed—triple check. Set it aside. Fill the gallon-sized bag about half-full with ice. Pour the salt on top of the ice. Put the pint-sized bag into the gallon bag. Seal the gallon bag well—again, triple check. Wrap the bag in a towel or put on some gloves, then shake the bag vigorously (but not too hard, or you’ll puncture the milk bag). Check it after about 5-10 minutes: when it’s hard, it’s ready to eat; if not, keep shaking.
*For flavoring: I usually just blend the milk with about a 1/2 scoop of flavored protein powder or a handful of fruit. You could also use 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 1/4 tsp mint extract, or a little coffee. (Also, although you can just put stuff on top, if you wait until the ice-cream is semi-hard, you can quickly fold in cacao or carob chips, honey ribbon, chopped nuts, etc.)
AND, if you have a toddler or youngish child: double the recipe, put on your kid’s favorite song, give them the bag, and let them have a blast. You get labor-free ice cream, the cutest performance on the planet, and a very happy munchkin to share a snack with.

James:Ahh yeah dude you're right omg kay cool thanks bro
I’m interested in many aspects of language: development, relationships between them, minority languages, historical languages, theoretical linguistics, and stuff like that. I currently speak 2 languages fluently and am learning 2 others. My eventual aim is five languages, not counting English. Oh and I also love conlanging!
What interests you my friend?
Well, I’m a linguistics student, so pretty much everything language. As for linguistic theory, I focus on semantics/pragmatics and where they intersect with morphosyntax. I’m also interested in documentation and preservation of dying languages. Dabbled in several languages and done linguistic research in a couple others, but can only claim fluency in Esperanto besides native English. I don’t suppose your conlanging goes in that direction?
Today I thought I’d bring cookies to a group project meeting, but then I remembered that one of the group members is Jewish, and it’s passover. Challenge accepted. I didn’t have any special ingredients on hand, but I decided to modify a recipe with stuff I have in the house. They turned out pretty tasty, and were ridiculously easy, so here’s the recipe:
makes ~ 12 cookies
1/2 cup nut butter (I used a cashew/almond blend) 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 banana 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed 2 tablespoons water pinch of salt
combine water and flaxseed in small bowl. in another bowl, mix together the sugar and nut butter. mash banana and add. add flaxseed mixture and salt—mix well. drop spoonfuls on parchment paper covered baking sheet. bake at 350 10-12 minutes, until edges are lightly brown.
no pictures because they were totally devoured. sorry!
