This easy ice cream recipe will take about 5-7 minutes.

Things You'll Need:

sandwich and quart zipper bags
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 tablespoons salt
2 cups ice cubes (1 ice cube tray worth)


1. Gather necessary ingredients. If you want to increase the amount you will have to use larger bags (quart and gallon).

2. Place bag into ice mixture. Mix vanilla extract, sugar, and milk. Pour into smaller size bag and seal closed. Put ice cubes and salt into larger size bag. Place the bag with milk mixture into the ice mixture bag and seal closed.

3. Almost done. Make sure bags are sealed COMPLETELY, hold bag with both hands and shake for 5-10 minutes. You will feel the ice cream getting thicker.

4. Yummy! When ice cream is desired thickness, remove bag from ice mixture. Wipe the outside of bag with rag or dish towel to remove salt. If you do not do this, you will have salty ice cream :( - Open your ice cream, pour into dish, and enjoy!(if still too much liquid, put in freezer for 2-3 minutes.

My daughter did this when I was gone shopping, and I thought no way it would turn into good ice cream! But when I returned home my daughter had a bowl ready for me in the freezer, and I took a bite. It was icy, creamy, flavorful, and I couldn't believe she did it with this many ingredients and that simple of instructions! I was also happy that the ingredients weren't that full of sugar, so we will be making this SO much in the summer thanks to you! Keep up the good work!
