Recipe: Home Made Ice Cream in a Bag

By Earthbound on July 31, 2014 in Blog, Recipes, Summer Camp

Serves 1


  • Ice cubes (enough to fill half a large ziploc bag)
  • 1 cup of half and half cream
  • 1/2 cup salt (Bigger granules work best, like Rock Salt or Kosher Salt, but table salt is fine)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Your favorite mixins such as chocolate chips, cereal pieces, or fresh fruit.


  • 1 small ziplock bag
  • 1 large ziplock bag

How to:

  1. Combine sugar, cream and vanilla extract in the smaller ziploc bag and seal tightly
  2. Place the salt, ice AND  the sealed smaller bag inside of the large ziploc bag
  3. Seal the large ziploc bag tightly
  4. Shake the bags until the mixture hardens (about 5 minutes). Feel the small bag to see if it’s done.
  5. Take the small bag out of the large bag, add your special ingredients (mint, chocolate chips, fruit… anything you like)
  6. Eat and enjoy your home made ice cream right out of the bag!
