My step-son and I found this recipe and we've been making ice cream EVERYDAY! He loves the half-and-half but I don't care for the taste of "homemade" ice cream.. I LOVED it with 1/4 C. Chocolate Caramel creamer and 1/4 C. milk instead. VERY YUMMY!

We did this with our girls over the summer, and I forgot to review it. They had a great time--such fun! Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful and simple recipe! I couldn't believe it was so easy and fast! Never again will I have to drive to the store when I have an ice cream craving. I used sea salt instead of rock salt and ziplock bags and everything turned out perfect! I would prefer it to be a little more creamy, but very good overall!

This was awesome! My kids and I had a lot of fun tossing this around and enjoyed the sweet treat. I used skim milk with a squirt of chocolate syrup and kosher salt. I am sure we will be making this a lot.

This as lots of fun, and my first attempt at making ice cream! Since I did not have rock salt (or have a clue where to find it), I used coarse kosher salt as previously suggested.

This is fun, and tasty! My twins and I did this this afternoon as a new activity, they loved it, cold hands and all!! The only change I made was using agave nectar instead of the sugar since it's already a liquid. We'll be doing this many more times in the future (thank goodness I have an ice maker). Thanks for posting.

This was fun! I set out earlier this evening to find an ice cream machine...with no luck. I almost gave up but came home, read this, and had to try. I used milk and kosher salt. My husband was skeptical but he squished his bag around and ate it. We loved it. Easy ingredients, fun to make, perfect serving size, I think next time I will try to add some chocolate syrup. The thing I loved the most was...I didn't have to waste money on a machine!! Thanks Divinemom5!

The sugar in this recipe can also be exchanged for a sugar substitute. Also, add-ins are fun! Honey and cinnamon with cashews and peanut butter with coconut are amazing!

Great, fun recipe! I used fat free half and half and it worked wonderfully. Would suggest being careful when removing the ice cream from bag as the salt can make its way on to this dessert. Thanks for a clever way to make a tasty treat!
