    Homemade Ice Cream In A ( A Ziplock)bag

    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    Forget endlessly cranking the handle of an ice-cream maker. After combining the ingredients, each guest can simply shake up his or her own pouch of soft serve--and it's done in just 5 minutes.

    List of Ingredients

    2 tablespoons sugar
    1 cup half and half
    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


    Step 1
    Combine the sugar, half and half, and vanilla extract in the pint-size bag and seal it tightly.

    Step 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.

    Step 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! Serves 1.
