    Loves2Teach's Note:

    I searched all over the internet for a recipe to make ice cream with my students... This is the one I decided on. The kids LOVED it. Similar recipes on zaar will not get as "hard" as this one due to the lack of enough ice or salt.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Add 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup whipping cream, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla to the quart ziploc bag. Mix the sugar around in the milk mixture.
    2. 2
      Seal the bag securely making sure all the air is out of the bag.
    3. 3
      Put 3 cups of ice into the gallon ziploc bag.
    4. 4
      Add 3/4 cup to 1 cup salt (sodium chloride) to the bag of ice.
    5. 5
      Place the sealed quart bag inside the gallon bag of ice and salt removing excess air from bigger bag.
    6. 6
      Seal the gallon bag securely.
    7. 7
      Rock and squish the gallon bag from side to side. Do not be too rough because the bag may break.
    8. 8
      Also, if the ourside bag springs a leak, place it inside another gallon bag, or just start over with the ice step with another bag.
    9. 9
      It's best to hold it by the top seal or to have gloves or a cloth between the bag and your hands because the bag will be cold enough to damage your skin.
    10. 10
      Continue to rock the bag for 10-15 minutes or until the contents of the quart bag have solidified into ice cream.
    11. 11
      If it does not harden within 15 minutes, add more ice and salt to your bag and continue mixing.

      I use the Rival mix. Add about 3/4 cup to each quart bag. Then put in another quart bag before putting in the gallon bag. Wrap newspaper around the bags. I make this with my kiddos at school, and they love it! You have to shake, or you will only have a delicious milkshake. I also use freezer bags since they're stronger.

      My high school son made this in his chemistry class yesterday (half and half) and loved it! He just whipped up a batch tonight (using whole milk)and was so proud of himself. He said he really couldn't tell a difference between the two. This is the first thing he's ever "cooked" and hopefully will inspire him in the future. Roxygirl
