Homemade Ice Cream To Go

Ever since I was a kid I wanted to make homemade ice cream, but for the longest time I didn't know how and then later I was stumped because I didn't have the proper equipment...or so I thought.

You can make your own ice cream at home with minimal mess, and just 2 Ziploc bags. Here's how:


2 Tbsp sugar
1 cup half & half (or 2% milk)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup coarse salt or table salt (I used coarse sea salt)
gallon-sized Ziploc bag
pint-sized Ziploc bag

1. Mix the sugar, half & half and vanilla extract together. Pour into a pint-sized Ziploc baggie. Make sure it seals tightly.

2. Now take the gallon-sized Ziploc bag and fill it up halfway with ice and pour the salt over the ice. Now place the cream filled bag into the ice filled bag and seal.

3. Make sure it is sealed tightly and start shaking. Shake for about 5 minutes (or 8 minutes if you use heavy cream.)

4. Open the gallon-sized bag and check to see if the ice cream is hard, if not keep shaking. Once the ice cream is finished, quickly run the closed pint-sized baggie under cold water to quickly clean the salt off the baggie.

5. Now open your little baggie and enjoy your efforts...and your ice cream!

Take Care,
