Ice Cream In Bag Method


  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • One-four cup cream
  • One-fourth cup milk
  • One-fourth teaspoon vanilla extract
  • One-half cup rock salt
  • Crushed ice
  • 1 pint-size plastic storage bag
  • 1 gallon-size plastic storage bag


  • Place the sugar, milk, cream, and vanilla in the pint size plastic bag and make sure it’s tightly sealed. Put the ice and rock salt into the gallon size bag and place the small bag into the larger bag and seal it up. Now, take turns shaking the bag till it turns into ice cream. It won’t take long, about 5 to 10 minutes and keeps you cool while you do it.
