Make this delicious and easy to create ice cream in a bag! It's a fun way to make a cool treat on a hot summer day.
- 1 gallon size freezer bag
- 3 cups crushed ice
- 1/3 cup rock salt
- 1 sandwich size freezer bag
- 1/2 cup half & half (or 1/4 cup milk & 1/4 cup cream)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
In a larger gallon-size freezer bag, mix salt and ice.
In the sandwich-size freezer bag, mix together half & half, vanilla, and sugar. If making chocolate ice cream, add 2 teaspoons cocoa powder + 1 additional teaspoon sugar.
Seal the sandwich-size bag tightly and place it inside the gallon bag.
Seal gallon-size bag tightly, and shake for about 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.
