Homemade Ice cream in a Bag
(Recipe found via HubPages.com)
Makes single servings
1/2 cup half & half or milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/3 cup rock salt
3 cups of crushed ice
1 gallon size freezer bag
1 sandwich size freezer bag
For chocolate ice cream: 2 teaspoons cocoa powder + 1/2 teaspoon sugar
Directions: In a larger gallon-size freezer bag, mix salt and ice. In the sandwich-size freezer bag, mix together half & half, vanilla, and sugar (and cocoa powder if making chocolate ice cream). Seal sandwich-size bag tightly and place inside the gallon bag. Seal gallon-size bag tightly, and shake for about 5-10 minutes until mixture is frozen. This is the perfect opportunity for a kid helper but consider using gloves or a kitchen towel because the mixture will be cold. Be gentle enough not to break the bag.
Eat right from the bag or scoop in a bowl or cone. Yum! 🙂
