5 Minutes to Home Made Ice Cream w/ everyday ingredients!

Home made ice cream can be much easier to achieve then you think! I myself have grown up with home made ice cream and have spent many days cranking the handle on the ol’ice cream maker.  But, that is not possible for everyone and I don’t like to drag out the whole machine all the time. Sometimes I want just enough for me or for a quick one after dinner dessert for my family!


Here’s what you need:

1/2 c Milk (whole milk is best)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tbs White Sugar
2 c Ice
6 tbs Rock Salt
1 quart zipper bag
1gallon zipper bag

First take the 1/2 c. Milk, 1 tbs white sugar and 1 tsp vanilla

Place those three ingredients (milk, sugar, vanilla) into quart zipper bag

Seal the bag tightly

Next take the 6 tbs rock salt and 2 cups ice and pour into gallon zipper bag

Place the quart zipper bag inside of the gallon zipper bag and shake, shake, shake!! It takes about 5 minutes of shaking to get the texture of Ice Cream! -At times it can take a little more shaking or a little less…depends on the consistency you want!


We decided on Cherry Syrup and a Cherry! – Eat and Enjoy!


  1. When I did event planning before I left Philadelphia I used to put bags with these ingredients and a few others together as favors. That way guests could just add ice, follow the directions and have a treat at home or at their hotels 🙂
