EASY DIY ICE CREAM IN A BAG with Ingredients Found around Your Home!

on April 20, 2012

Holy Moly, really?  Ice Cream is this easy????  Woooooaaahhh…

Maybe I shouldn’t know that!!!!!   But that is why I am sharing it with you!!!  Ha ha, just made my guilt level come down a little since I am passing this on.

I will keep this SHORT and SWEET!!!!  So you can enjoy your homemade treat.  I found this on Pinterest HERE.  I put my pictures in the end so you can just copy and paste the recipe onto a Word Document.

Here are the ingredients!

1 cup Half & Half or light cream  (I used Fat Free Half & Half–feeling a little better about myself)

2 Tbs Sugar

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1/2 cup Coarse Salt or Table Salt (I used Kosher Brand Coarse Salt)

1 Gallon-sized Freezer bag

1 Pint-Sized Freezer bag  (I just used 2 Gallon sized, worked just fine)

Pour the half & half, sugar and the vanilla extract into a pint-sized (or a gallon if you don’t have a pint-size) freezer baggie. Make sure it has a tight seal.
Now take the gallon-sized freezer bag and fill it up halfway with ice.  Pour the salt over the ice. Now place the cream filled bag into the ice filled bag and seal WELL.
Start shaking. Shake for about 5 minutes (or 8 minutes if you use heavy cream.) Open the gallon-sized bag and check to see if the ice cream is hard, if not keep shaking. You will want to put on gloves at this point.  Brrrrrr  Once the ice cream is finished, rinse the closed pint-sized baggie under cold water to clean the salt off the baggie.
Cut a corner off the bottom to pipe it into a dish…
Watch your kids get excited!  ENJOY!!!!

(1.) Pour the half & half, sugar and the vanilla extract into a pint-sized (or a gallon if you don’t have a pint-size) freezer baggie. Make sure it has a tight seal.

(2.) Now take the gallon-sized freezer bag and fill it up halfway with ice.  Pour the salt over the ice. Now place the cream filled bag into the ice filled bag and seal WELL.

(3.) Start shaking. Shake for about 5 minutes (or 8 minutes if you use heavy cream.) Open the gallon-sized bag and check to see if the ice cream is hard, if not keep shaking.  You will want to put on gloves at this point.  Brrrrrr   Once the ice cream is finished, rinse the closed pint-sized baggie under cold water to clean the salt off the baggie.

 

(4.)  Cut a corner off the bottom of the bag to pipe it into a dish…

(5.) Watch your kids get excited!  Well, at least one kid.  The other was tired from shaking.  lol    ENJOY!!!!

The only thing I would say… MAKE SURE YOU DO 2 BATCHES at least…  What you see pictured here was 2 batches.  It won’t be much to go around, but that is ok too!

I will need to stock up on creamer now!  I wonder if it would have thickened up more if I shook it longer… Next time I will shake it longer for sure!  We were just so excited to open the bag and try it and the kids weren’t doing as much shaking as me.  So it probably was only shook for about 2 1/2 min each.  lol

  4. I love this idea for kids – they can keep passing it around and shaking. We used to put jars inside a coffee can filled with ice and roll the coffee can back and forth.
