  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ cup cream
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup rock salt
  • Ice
  • 2 ziplock bags (one smaller than the other)
Getting Started
  1. Add 1/2 cup whole milk, 1/2 cup cream, 1/4 cup sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract to a mixing cup and stir until well combined.
  2. Add the mixture to a small zipper bag (high quality). You’ll be shaking the bag vigorously for 5 minutes and you dont want it to open in the process!
  3. Take the larger ziplock bag and fill with a couple handfuls of ice and about half of the rock salt.
  4. Place the smaller bag inside the larger bag. Cover it with more ice and rock salt.
  5. Now the fun part! And, what better way to earn your ice cream than a few minutes of exercise. Wrap the bag in a towel, because it is cold, and shake it for 5 minutes or until the liquid in the smaller bag turns into ice cream.
  6. You can scoop it out but honestly, just eat it out of the bag. It is easier.

And that’s it! Enjoy your cold treat on any hot summer day.
