Homemade ice cream in a bag in 5 minutes!

We have done this many times over the years and it turns out SO good! Perfect for a hot summer day and no egg in it for my allergic boy.

Here's the recipe I use:

2 Tbsp sugar
1 cup half and half
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup salt
Is usually smoother, was 100+ out & maybe needed to shake longer.
ice cubes (enough to fill half of a gallon size bag)
1 pint-size Ziploc bag
1 gallon-size Ziploc bag

Step 1

Combine sugar, half and half, and vanilla (I've also added a Tbsp of cocoa to the mix for chocolate), and seal it tightly.

Step 2

Place the salt and ice in the gallon-size bag, then place the sealed smaller bag inside as well. Seal the larger bag. Now shake the bags until the mixture hardens (about 5 minutes). Feel the small bag to determine when it is done.

Step 3

Take the smaller bag out of the larger one, add mix-ins, and eat the ice cream right out of the bag.


  1. Now THAT I can do! I may not like to cook, and I'm bad at Pinterest, but I love easy-peasy ice cream.

    1. LOL, I still have not braved the world of Pinterest. And I am ALL about easy-peasy food :)

  2. That sounds like the perfect thing to do on our 90 degree days that are happening this week--I'll have to see if I have half and half!

    1. Yes! It makes a hot day so much better. Let me know if you try it and how it turns out!
