Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag

2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup half and half
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup rock salt
Ice cubes (enough to fill each gallon-size bag about half full)
1 pint-size ziplock bag
1 gallon-size ziplock bag
1. Combine the sugar, half and half, and vanilla extract in the pint-size bag and seal it tightly.
2. 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.
3. Take the smaller bag out of the larger one, add mix-ins, and eat the ice cream right out of the bag. Easy cleanup too!

  1. I used this recipe as an activity for 8-9 year old girls at church. It gets really hot here! Making ice cream was a great way to cool off. The girls had fun tossing their bags back and forth. They had an even a greater time eating ice cream - that they had made themselves - right out of the bag!
