How to Make Homemade Ice Cream in a Plastic
Bag. No ice cream? No problem! You probably have the ingredients at home to whip some
up. You will need Two resealable plastic bags one gal.-sized and one qt.-sized 1/2 c. reduced-fat
or whole milk 1 1/2 to 2 tbsp. of sugar 1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract or 1 tbsp. of cocoa
powder 2 trays of ice cubes 6 tbsp. salt Waterproof winter gloves Chocolate or butterscotch chips
Flavored syrups and flavoring extracts. Step 1. Put the milk and sugar in the quart-sized
bag and seal it. For vanilla ice cream, add vanilla extract; for chocolate ice cream,
add cocoa powder. Throw in a quarter of a cup of chocolate or butterscotch chips if
you like. Experiment with other varieties by using ½ to 1 tsp. of flavored syrups like
strawberry or caramel or extracts like lemon or almond. Step 2. Put the ice and the salt
in the gallon-sized bag. Step 3. Put the smaller bag inside the bigger bag and seal it. Step
4. Shake the larger bag vigorously for seven to 10 minutes. Wear winter gloves while you
shake; the bag is cold! Step 5. Remove the small bag, which now contains ice cream. Snip
a hole in the corner of the bag and squeeze it into a dish. Makes one serving. Did you
know In the 1920s, immigrants arriving on Ellis Island were served vanilla ice cream
as part of their “Welcome to America” meal.

    It works with almost any milk if I am not mistaken. Also size if bags are irelvent just need one to hold ice preferably larger but if same size just don't completely fill ingredients bag to top so it can go in ice bag and shake it up.
