Instant Homemade Ice Cream
This is perhaps the easiest ice cream recipe out there! It is a ton of fun to make too! I first made this in Chemistry class a couple of years ago...so it is educational as well! Feel free to mess around with this one- maybe sneak a little malted milk in the mix, or a little chocolate syrup. It's is not exactly gourmet ice cream or anything, but it's tasty!
- Ready In:
- 1 cup 1% low-fat milk (Or any kind of milk, I always have 1% in the house)
- 2 tablespoons sugar or 2 tablespoons artificial sweetener
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 cups ice cubes
- 1⁄4 cup rock salt (Whatever kind of salt you have on hand works fine)
- In a quart-sized (regular) ziploc plastic bag, mix together the milk, sugar, and vanilla.
- Seal the bag tightly, without leaving a lot of air inside.
- (If you are a little paranoid about it leaking out, feel free to tape it up!).
- In a gallon-sized ziploc plastic bag, mix the ice and salt.
- Place the sealed quart-sized bag in the gallon-sized one.
- Securely seal the gallon-sized bag without leaving very much air in the inside.
- Shake, mush, and squish the bag for 6-10 minutes, or until the ice cream has set to a soft serve consistency.
- Remove the inside bag (maybe even rinse off the salt) and you can either eat the ice cream right out of the bag with a spoon, or pour it into a small dish.
- If you want the ice cream to be more firm, feel free to throw the bag into the freezer for a little while!
