Baggy Ice Cream

In school, Ashlyn’s class made ice cream in a bag. So we just tried it at home. Turned out pretty good. We should have had more ice, but we didn’t have time to freeze more. So ours set up okay, but would have been more so with more ice. Taste wise it was really good. 

There are a ton of recipe’s online. It’s usually a combination of milk, half and half, sugar and vanilla. And you’ll need 2 sizes of freezer bags, ice and rock salt.

Mix the milk, half and half, sugar and vanilla in the quart size freezer bag. Get as much air out as you can and seal. Put this bag in a gallon freezer bag with ice and salt. And shake the bajesus out of it.

It will start to firm up after about 10-15 minutes.

Have you ever tried this quick version of ice cream before? How did it turn out? Any good tips for us? It’s a fun thing to do with kids.

    How can you go wrong w/ milk, cream, & sugar? 🙂 Looks yummy! We used to make ice cream sometimes but it's been a couple of years!

    I was surprised at how good it was. I'd prefer one of those machine's or to just buy it, but the baggy way is fun for kids.
