Ice Cream in a Bag


  • 1/2 cup milk (it doesn’t matter what kind, whole, 2%, chocolate, etc.)
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla


First add the milk, sugar and vanilla in a pint size zip lock freezer bag.  I put the zip lock bag in a cup so that it would be easier for the kids to add the ingredients.  Zip the bag shut.

Place the pint size bag into a quart or larger size zip lock bag.  And add enough ice to fill the bag half way and add 6 tablespoons of salt.  Zip that bag shut and start shaking/mixing the bag.  It will take about 5-10 minutes to get really cold ice cream.
Shake, shake, shake
Keep on shaking….
Before opening the bag with the ice cream….make sure you dry it off with a towel and open it carefully so that you won’t get any salt water into the ice cream.  Put it in a bowl, add a few sprinkles, and bon appetit!
