We got this recipe from our local childrens museum and it's so much fun and even the littlest hands can help.

Haven't tried making it yet. Just wondering why the sodium is so high in the nutrition info when the salt doesn't go into the ingredients.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3785.0 ml ziploc bag
  • 946.0 ml ziploc bag
  • 236.59 ml milk
  • 14.79 ml sugar
  • 2.46 ml vanilla
  • 78.07 ml salt
  • ice


  1. Pour the milk, sugar and vanilla into the smaller, quart sized bag.
  2. Fill the larger, gallon sized bag 3/4 full of ice, then add the salt to the ice.
  3. Place the smaller bag inside the larger bag and close the seal. make sure you close them both tightly!
  4. Now shake the bag good and hard for 5 minutes.
  5. Rinse the small bag off with cold water before opening to keep the salt water from getting into your ice cream.
