5 Minute Homemade Ice Cream-in-a-Bag (frugal family fun)
We’re like any other family and love to have fun together but we don’t love spending lots of money to accomplish that! And so recently when I came across this recipe for Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag and knew that we had to try it. We all love ice cream and I was pretty sure that we’d have fun watching the milk turn into ice cream almost right before our eyes. And I was right- in fact, it kind of felt like we were performing magic or something!
Want to try it yourself? Here’s how:
Okay, so here’s the recipe and instructions in an easier to read format.
5 Minute Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup half and half or milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup salt (The bigger the granules, the better. Kosher or rock salt works best, but table salt is fine.)
Ice cubes (enough to fill each gallon-size bag about half full)
1 pint-size ziplock bag
1 gallon-size ziplock bag
Combine the sugar, half and half, and vanilla extract in the pint-size bag and seal it tightly. Place the salt and ice in the gallon-size bag, then place the sealed smaller bag inside as well. Seal the larger bag. Now shake the bags until the mixture hardens (about 5 minutes). Feel the small bag to determine when it’s done. Take the smaller bag out of the larger one, add mix-ins, and eat the ice cream right out of the bag. Serves 1.
