  • The ingredients
  • 1 c milk whole or even half and half
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1/2 t vanilla
  • I did this on a whim, so I didn't have the right stuff, which resulted in a little runny ice cream.
  • duct tape the silver one <-- this isn't to tie the three year old down to take a nap...but I was tempted
  • gallon sized zipper bag go brand name here, you don't want the cheap ones..trust me!
  • quart sized sipper bag
  • ice
  • rock salt Kosher salt wasn't enough, either
  • winter gloves or towels
  • Another option if you have coffee cans, you can use a small one and a large one in place of the bags with same results.


  • Inside a quart sized freezer bag: 1c milk (whole or even half and half) 1T sugar 1/2 t vanilla seal with duct tape (the silver one)
  • Put this bag inside a gallon sized freezer bag then fill about 3/4 full with ice and put about 6T of rock salt.
  • Seal the bag.
  • Shake and mix for about 5-10 minutes...your hands will get cold.
  • Then take the inside bag out of the other bag and rinse it off; then open it and serve.
  • Put sprinkles or whatever on it.
