“This recipe sounds fun with the kiddies this summer, or at an adult party – lots of laughs.

Ice Cream in a Zip-loc

(recipe will make one dish of ice cream)

1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon sugar
4 cups crushed ice
4 tablespoons salt
2 quart size Zip-loc bags
1 gallon size Zip-loc freezer bag
a hand towel or gloves to keep fingers from freezing as well!

Mix the milk, vanilla and sugar together in one of the quart size bags. Seal tightly, allowing as little air to remain in the bag as possible (too much air left inside may force the bag open during shaking)
Place this bag inside the other quart size bag, again leaving as little air inside as possible and sealing well. By double-bagging, the risk of salt and ice leaking into the ice cream is minimized.

Next, put the two bags inside the gallon size bag and fill the bag with ice, then sprinkle salt on top. Again let all the air escape and seal the bag.
Wrap the bag in the towel or put your gloves on, and Shake, Shake, Shake! and massage the bag, making sure the ice surrounds the cream mixture.
Five to eight minutes is adequate time for the mixture to freeze into ice cream.

Freezer bags work best because they are thicker and less likely to develop small holes, allowing the bags to leak. You can get away with using regular Zip-loc bags for the smaller quart sizes, because you are double-bagging. Especially if you plan to do this indoors, I strongly recommend using the gallon size freezer bags. (Recipe found on Sisterly Savings)

Thank you, Clenna! 🙂

  1. Are you SERIOUS? I am a diehard ice cream fanatic and I cannot wait to get my hands on some Ziploc bags so I can try this out. OMG – I have visions of this vanilla ice cream topped with fresh cherries and other fruit. YUM! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Greetings Yona!
    I’ve missed you! 🙂
    So glad you like the recipe. It would be a great group activity for an end-of-summer party!
    (I’m with you though . . . ice cream is a 4-season treat!) 😉

  3. Hi all
    It’s a great recipe to use for a birthday party, at school, or a church function.
    Hope everyone gets to try it.

  4. What a fun way to celebrate the first day of Sunday school. We are always on the look out for a fun activity that we can do in the park after the first day. Thank you for the recipe.

    I have even made the dogs frozen treats this summer since because it was so hot. It has been in the 80’s the last few days and I’m loving it.

  5. So glad it’s finally cooler there, Kelly! 🙂
    We’ve had a little break here too, but humidity will be back for tomorrow. 🙁
    I think even those who call summer their “favorite season” are looking forward to autumn this year.

  6. Hey there,
    I could be wrong, but….don’t you have a birthday today or sometime pretty soon?

  7. This sounds like fun…ice cream without an ice cream maker. I’m going to give it a try as well. xo Paulette
