Ice Cream in a Bag
This is a fun and yummy recipe. Kids of all ages love it!
- 1 cup of milk
- 12 tablespoons of salt (The bigger the grains, the better. Kosher or rock salt works best, but table salt is fine.)
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon of your favorite flavor (vanilla extract, chocolate, strawberry, etc.)
- A tray of ice (enough to fill each gallon-size bag about half full)
- 1 gallon-size resealable freezer bag. (e.g., Ziploc, better double zipper). You can use 2 bags for extra protection.
- 1 quart-size resealable freezer bag. (e.g., Ziploc, better double zipper). You can put 2 quarts-size bags of the ice cream in the bag of ice so you get twice as much done in the same amount of time.
- As a variable add your favorite ice cream flavors. “add-ins” strawberry/chocolate/vanilla flavors, crushed cookies like chocolate chips cookies, crushed Oreo’s , small candies, chopped fruit, nuts, peanuts, sprinkles, mini M&M’s, , gums pieces , or just food coloring (Only to add color), etc.
- Measuring spoon.
- Before starting, verify that the bags do not have holes by adding water to the bags.
- Place the ice and salt inside the gallon-size bag. Closed it carefully.
- Place the milk, sugar, and favorite flavors into the quart-size bag. Squeeze all the air out of the bag, and seal the quart-size bag.
- Place the smaller bag (quart-size bag) inside the large bag (gallon-size bag) containing the ice and the salt. Now seal it.
- Shake very hard back and forth for about 5 minutes, or until the mixture thickens. Make sure to wrap the bags inside a towel to protect hands. Feel the small bag to decide when it is done. Should have the consistency of a frozen yogurt.
- Before eating the ice cream out of the bag, rinse the smaller bag in cold water to remove all the salt.
