How to Make Ice Cream in a Bag

I scream you scream. Who doesn’t love Ice cream? This is a fun and easy recipe to make your own at home and get your kids (if you have some) involved in the kitchen. Be forwarned that this recipe honestly takes about 10-15 minutes of vigorous shaking so if you’re not up for the physical challenge go to Haagen Dazs. The consistency of this ice cream is also that of soft serve so don’t expect a super firm result. With all that said, it’s freaking delicious so go make some homemade ice cream.

You will need:

1 gallon sized zip bag

1-2 smaller zip bags (2 if you want to double bag to prevent leakage)

Some crushed ice to fill 1/2 your gallon bag

2 cups heavy cream

2 cups 1/2 & 1/2

1/2 cup white sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

about 3 tablespoons salt


Take your gallon bag and fill 1/2 with crushed ice and add salt to the ice (this lowers the freezing point and prevents ice from melting so quickly) and shake salt around

Take all ingredients and combine in a bowl and whisk until sugar is dissolved

Ladle mixture into smaller bag and close tightly

Put smaller bag into larger ice bag

Shake for 10 minutes and serve!

It really is so good and a good workout!
