Pagoto yia Paithia: Ice Cream for Kids (No-Cook)

In Greek: παγωτό για παιδιά, pronounced pahg-hoh-TOH yah pehth-YAH

No cooking… just great fun for the kids. Divide the mix (before adding the goodies) into 2 or more bowls and let the kids get creative! And while the kids are making their own ice cream with 6 egg whites, use the yolks from those 6 eggs to make your own fabulous vanilla ice cream.


  • 16 ounces of non-dairy whipped cream (1 large or 2 regular containers)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 6 egg whites
  • 2 cans (14 ounces each) of sweetened condensed milk


In a large bowl (or divide everything into two or three parts for more kids), whisk the egg whites until foamy. Whisk in, in order, the whipped cream, milk, and vanilla. Whisk until it becomes a frothy mixture. (Older children can use a hand mixer.)

Adding treats:

     Chocolate chips, nuts, cocoa, pieces of fruit, and crunchy pieces of cookies or cereal are just some of the treats that can be added. Just whisk them in!

Freeze in one or more covered metal containers (the ice cream freezes more evenly). Check after a couple of hours… it may not be totally frozen, but who can wait? (When frozen, pack in ice cream containers.) Yield: about 8 cups

Fun with friends: If your child’s or grandchild’s friends make this recipe together, send each child home with a container of his/her own creation.
