Shake-n-Make Ice Cream

This was so much fun! First, take out a sandwich size Ziplock bag. *Tip: Use the name brand bags and don't try this with a no-name variety! If the bag bursts during the mixing, the ice cream will be ruined. Into the bag, measure 2 tablespoons of sugar,
1/4 teaspoon vanilla,

and 1 cup of milk. (The creamier the milk, the better the ice cream will be. If you have half-and-half handy, it is best)

*Tip: Add some peppermint extract, crushed up cookies, a squeeze of chocolate syrup, or small pieces of fruit to flavour your ice cream the way you like it.

Gently squeeze out the air from the bag, and seal it shut.

Then, in a large Ziplock bag, empty about two trays of ice cubes, and add 5 tablespoons of rock salt, (aka pickling salt).

Put the sealed bag with the milk into the large bag of ice. Squeeze as much air out as you can, then seal the large bag.

Shake the bag!

Keep shaking it for 5 minutes.

*Tip: You could also knead the bag in your hands, but if you do that be sure to have some mittens on.

Open up the large bag and take out the small one. Rinse the small bag under cold water from the tap to be sure no salt will get into your treat when you open it.

This is how it will look when it is ready.

Take out your spoon and enjoy!

We were eating this together, but after I'd had a few bites he asked if I would let him have all the rest "because it is just too good!" Ha!

I did this last summer when we had a few kids over and they each got to have their own bag, flavoured the way they liked, that they got to shake up and gobble down. It was a hit.

  1. I have a some left over cream I was just thinking today, "What should I make with that?" It will be a great hit, I'm sure.


I love hearing from you! Let me know what you’re thinking.
