Put ingredients in a 1 pint Ziploc Freezer Bag and zip shut. Take a larger size Ziploc Freezer Bag and put the Ice Cream Bag inside of it then add crushed ice until halfway full then sprinkle 6 Tbs.s of salt on top and zip the bag shut. Gently shake, turn, toss and knead the bag so the mix can get cold enough to make ice cream. After

5 or 10 minutes, the liquid from the inner bag will start to harden and turn into ice cream. Continue to shake, turn, toss and knead the bag. When the ice cream reaches the consistency you desire, open the Ziploc and remove the bag with your ice cream. Be sure to rinse off the Bag with the ice cream to remove any salt residue before opening and eating. Grab a spoon and enjoy!

Note: Do not double this recipe, it doesn't work well for bigger portions. For a lighter ice cream use half and half or whole milk.

  • Sam [my grandson] came home from school and said they made ice cream in ag class. I asked if he brought the recipe home . Nope, it got wet. I asked if the ice cream was easy to make and was it good? Yes, yes , yes. Could we make some? Do I have any flavorings? Like mint? His favorite. We looked up ice cream in a bag and found this site with this very simple recipe. We made two bags of ice cream [soft serve] in our favorite flavors. Chocolate Mint and Mint. Both flavors were easy and fun to make. When Grandpa got home from truckin all week we had more tasty homemade ice cream just rolling in our mittened hands.Thanks for a very nice treat enjoyed by Grandma, Grandpa and Grandson. We will do this many more times. Grandma Linda
