Ice Cream In A Bag

Awhile ago I made some sorbet for Kelly using this technique, but I guess I forgot to write it down. So here it is for my reference, this time producing ice cream (the physics and chemistry are the same with sorbet):

Ice Cream in a Bag


  • 1 tablespoon Sugar

  • 1/2 cup Milk or half & half

  • 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla

  • 6 tablespoons Rock salt

  • 1 pint-size Ziploc plastic bag

  • 1 gallon-size Ziploc plastic bag

  • Ice cubes


  1. Fill the large bag half full of ice, and add the rock salt. Seal the bag.

  2. Put milk, vanilla, and sugar into the small bag, and seal it.

  3. Place the small bag inside the large one and seal again carefully.

  4. Shake until mixture is ice cream, about 5 minutes.

  5. Wipe off top of small bag, then open carefully and enjoy!
