Make Your Own Ice Cream!

But wait… in a bag?!?

Materials Needed:

  • 1 gallon Ziploc bag
  • 1 quart Ziploc bag
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar 
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla 
  • ⅓ cup salt 
  • ice 


  1. Pour the milk, sugar, and vanilla into the smaller quart-sized bag.
  2. Fill the larger gallon-sized bag ¾ full of ice, then add the salt to the ice.
  3. Place the smaller bag inside the larger bag and close the seal; make sure you close them both tightly!
  4. Now shake the bag good and hard for 5 minutes.
  5. Rinse the small bag off with cold water before opening up to keep the salt water from getting into your ice cream.
  6. Enjoy!
