Ice Cream in a Bag

This recipe was fun to make because the kids got to make it in an unusual way. The recipe said it takes only 5 minutes to make, but we all agreed that was underestimating. For each child you’ll need Ziploc bags in gallon size and pint or quart size and enough ice to fill the gallon bag halfway. We added some chocolate chips, about ¼ c each child. Add whatever you’d like.

So, let’s get cooking!

Fill the gallon bags halfway with ice and add the rock salt. Add the half and half, sugar, vanilla, and any fruit or extras you want to the pint or quart size bags. Seal tightly. Check the kids’ bags; my Megan’s ingredients bag wasn’t sealed all the way and before I realized it, some of the ingredients had squeezed out.

Make sure the gallon bags are sealed tightly too. Have the children shake, shake, shake the bags! My kids’ hands got cold so after a couple of minutes they got cloth napkins and kitchen towels to hold the bags.

After maybe 4 minutes you can take one of the bags out so the kids can see how it’s doing and how much thicker or how slushy it is. Ryan showed us his.

Here is the frozen result. This was Megan’s; she shook hers the slowest and hers got done first, after about 7 or 8 minutes. Ryan and Timmy were shaking theirs like maniacs and theirs got done maybe 5 minutes later.

Inside the bag, it looks just like ice cream you buy.

The children can eat this ice cream right out of the bag!

Enjoy! ~TMMF
