How to Make Ice Cream in a Bag
Mix together your favorite ice cream recipe in a quart ziplock bag; seal and shake well.
For a fantastic base recipe combine:
- 1 Pint Heavy Whipping Cream (that’s 2 cups)
- 1 TAB powdered sugar (or other sweetener)
- 1 teas vanilla
- 2-3 TAB Pureed Fruit or Cocoa (optional)
Hint: You may want to double bag it to make sure it doesn’t leak!
In a galloon ziplock bag add 6-8 cups ice and 1/2 cup rock salt.
Now put the ice cream bag inside the galloon size ice bag. Zip closed.
Now shake the bag for 15 minutes or so.
Hint: Remember bags can split open if dropped.
Keep shaking until you get your desired consistency (soft serve to firm).
It is ready to serve! YUM!
Scoop out ice cream into 5-6 bowls and enjoy!
