Five Minute Homemade Ice Cream

Posted on December 22, 2013

2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup milk (we used 2%)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup salt (The bigger the granules, the better. Kosher or rock salt works best, but table salt is fine.)
Ice cubes (enough to fill each gallon-size bag about half full)
1 pint-size ziplock bag
1 gallon-size ziplock bag

Combine the sugar, milk, and vanilla extract in the pint-size bag and seal it tightly. (You can add sliced fruit, chocolate chips, or other flavorings of your choice). 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’s done. Take the smaller bag out of the larger one, and enjoy!
