It’s no secret that I’m an ice cream lover, but even I was impressed by how quick and easy it is to make homemade ice cream. Now, I’ve made ice cream in a ice cream maker, but I’ve never even thought to make my own, individualized serving of creamy and delicious homemade ice cream without the machinery – until now.

To make your own homemade ice cream, you can use ingredients you likely already have in your house – with the exception of rock salt. That you’ll need to grab next time you’re at the store.

Assemble the Ingredients:
• 2 tablespoons sugar
• 1 cup whole milk or half & half (the fattier the dairy product, the creamier your ice cream will be)
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
• 8 tablespoons rock salt
• 1 pint-size Ziploc plastic bag
• 1 gallon-size Ziploc plastic bag
• Ice cubes

*After your first round of ice cream making, you might also try adding a bit of chocolate syrup or crushed candy to give your ice cream more flavor.

Making Ice Cream

Making ice cream is outrageously simple. Start by putting the sugar, milk and vanilla into the smaller of the two Ziploc bags. Seal the bag carefully and place it aside for now. Later on, after you’ve made basic vanilla ice cream a few times, you might want to start experimenting by adding additional flavors or treats to your ice cream. This would be the step to do so. (Chocolate chips, baking candies, crushed candy bars, chocolate syrup, and nuts all taste delicious in ice cream.)

In the large bag, combine the ice and rock salt. This will get very cold, so be sure you protect your hands. Place the sealed bag of ingredients inside the larger bag full of ice and salt. Be sure the smaller bag is as surrounded by ice as possible.

Start shaking! For five minutes you can shake the bag by hand or roll it around vigorously on the counter or floor. Just be sure your bag is sealed up tight! You might want to use a dishtowel or gloves to protect your hands as the outside of the ice bag is just as cold as the inside.

While you’re rolling and shaking, pay attention to how the slushy ingredients are starting to firm up. When you have a creamy, delicious looking substance, you can stop shaking. Congratulations! You’ve made ice cream!

You’ll want to carefully remove the small bag of ice cream from inside the large bag of ice. Carefully place the ice and salt into the sink and rinse off the outside of the smaller bag.

The best part of this kind of ice cream is you can eat the ice cream directly from the bag or dish it out into another bowl before sitting down and enjoying.

How you eat your ice cream is up to you, but personally I enjoy mine curled up with a great movie or television show.

This would be cool for babysitting. You can ask the parents about it beforehand, tell them the things you'll need, then they can leave them out or something, and then you can make ice cream with the kid(s)

That was fun, lol. We have 3 cats and while we were bouncing the bags on the floor they were all looking at us as if to say "yup, they've finally lost it".

Ice cream was totally yummy!

GREAT article!!!

that's so awesome! But have you seen those ice cream balls they have at Land's End? You put all your desired and necessary ingredients into a ball, close it, and throw it around for five minuets or more (depending on the size) and voila! Ice cream, and a fun way to play with family and friends!

we did this in science class.

It's best if you double the smaller bags because a lot of people's opened and got all the salt in it and it was nasty.

But it's really good if you do it right. I made it so much after we did it in class.
