Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream in a Bag Recipe (So easy and delicious!)
Who doesn’t love a good bowl of creamy, smooth, rich ice cream? I generally gravitate to sorbets or yogurts. However, when my husband got the idea to make homemade ice cream using bags and ice, I was intrigued… and a bit skeptical. Our Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream in a Bag Recipe is so easy and delicious, you’ll be remaking it until you run out of the ingredients!
Making our homemade vanilla ice cream is a bit of a workout but that’s ok because it gives a good excuse to eat a bit more!
Yields: 1 quart, Servings: 4
Ingredients & tools needed:
- 3 one gallon zippered bags
- 2 Ice trays worth of ice crushed (24 cubes)
- 4 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 1/2 cups of Heavy Cream
- 2 1/2 cups Half and Half
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 tablespoon Vanilla extract
- Mix your Sugar, Vanilla Extract and Creams. Don’t whip it.
- Pour the mixture into your gallon zippered storage bag.
- Place that bag into your second zippered bag (to protect the bag with the cream in it).
- Fill your third bag with the crushed ice and salt.
- Shake it all up until it begins to freeze. This will take up to 10 mins of shaking. Quite a workout!!
- Once it turns into ice cream, remove the inner bag from the outer bag, open it up and serve!
