Ice Cream in a Bag

Who doesn’t love homemade ice cream?  

Unfortunately, we don’t have an ice cream freezer.  That’s why I was so excited when I found this recipe a few years ago.  My kids love it!  It’s great for a hot summer day.

You’ll need:

1 gallon size Ziplock bag

1 pint size Ziplock bag

1/2 c. milk

1 T. sugar

1/4 t. vanilla

6 T. salt


Fill gallon size Ziplock bag half full of ice.  Add salt and seal the bag and set aside while you prepare the ice cream.  

In the pint size Ziplock bag, pour milk, sugar, and vanilla.  Seal the bag and place it in the larger bag of ice. Seal the large bag and hand it to your kid.  Have him/her shake the bag around for about 5 minutes to freeze the ice cream.  I always end up giving my boys a hand towel to hold onto the bag with because their hands get so cold!

When the 5 minutes is up, wipe off the smaller bag so no salt gets in the ice cream, open it up, and give ’em a spoon!  They can eat it right from the bag.  My kids love knowing that they made ice cream all by themselves in only 5 minutes time.

**This only makes one serving so I make up a bag for each of my kids.
