Ice Cream in a Bag

Today we went to Dairy Days at Thanksgiving Point and made Ice Cream in a Bag that was so easy and fun to do. I thought it would be a really fun activity to do with kids this summer and wanted to share the recipe with y'all!

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • 1 cup rock salt
  • 1 quart sized Ziploc freezer bag
  • 1 gallon sized Ziploc freezer bag
  • Duct tape
Put the milk, half & half, sugar and vanilla in the quart sized freezer bag and seal. For security, fold a piece of duct tape over the seal. Place the quart sized bag within the gallon sized bag. Pack the ice and salt in the gallon sized bag.

Seal the bag and shake for about 10 minutes. Wipe the quart sized bag to be sure the salt water doesn't get into the ice cream. Cut a corner of the bag and squeeze into Dixie cups. One bag should fill about 5 cups. Add desired toppings, eat and enjoy!
