Shaking Homemade Ice Cream

Here's one of my favorite combinations--snack and activity.  It's cheap and easy to make, and it's kind of fun.

Ziploc Bag Ice Cream

Mix these three ingredients and place them in a quart sized storage bag.
  • 1/2 C. milk or half and half (I used skim because it's what I had on hand.  Half and half is my preference because it's creamier.)
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Fill a gallon sized storage bag about half full with ice, then add around 1/3-1/2 cup of rock salt.

Drop the quart sized bag into the gallon sized bag.  You can put two in if you need to make a few servings of ice cream.

Then SHAKE!  It takes about 5-10 minutes, depending on how good your shaker is.

And enjoy!  It's a great fun activity on a hot day, and the shaking will wear the kids out.
