Homemade Ice Cream

Wanna know how to make homemade ice cream with just the stuff you have in your kitchen? Out of ice cream and craving some? I just got done doing this with the kids (among many many other things today). The best part is that it only takes around 20 minutes! All you need is:

  • a quart sized Ziploc baggie
  • a gallon sized Ziploc baggie
  • 1/2 c. of milk
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla (or other flavor additives, whatever you want)
  • ice (I used a tray and a half)
  • 1/4 c. salt

  • pour milk sugar and flavorings into your quart baggie and close it.
  • place the quart baggie into the gallon baggie
  • pour in the ice and salt over the top of the quart baggie.
SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE!!! The ice and salt will cause a reaction, making the milk mixture freeze into delicious soft serve. It took about 10-15 minutes of shaking to turn ours into soft serve. It was amazing. Try it out!
