Have you ever wanted to make ice cream, but don’t have an ice cream maker? This recipe for Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag is perfect for you!
I grew up on a dairy farm, so obviously I have a soft spot in my heart for dairy farmers. They’ve had a rough go of things lately and the current situation isn’t helping things for them. With the closure of schools and several restaurants across the nation, there is a lot of bottle necking going on and, unfortunately many dairy farms are being asked to dump their milk, so when I get the call to help out the dairy industry, I do just that! Here is a picture I took after my grocery pick up last week.
We love milk around here! Plus I had plans to make homemade ice cream in a bag and copycat Wendy’s Frosties from my friend Leah at The Farmwife Drinks with my crew, so I needed to plan for that as well. Not only are dairy farmers struggling, but in general, are farmers are struggling. Beef and pork farmers are also having a rough go of it, mainly because of the restaurants being pretty much non-existent. So, please continue to buy dairy, beef, pork, chicken, etc to help support farms!!!!
Any way back to this delicious Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag….I love homemade ice cream. We even got an ice cream maker as a wedding gift and I’ve thought about busting that bad boy out on several occasions, but I just can’t bring myself to do it. I’ve read the instructions and it sounds rather intimidating. Maybe one day I’ll get the courage, but for right now, I think we’ll continue doing it this way.
Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag
You will need:
1/4 Cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Cup whole milk
1 Cup whipping cream
3 Cups ice
1 Cup Kosher salt
Bath towel (optional)
Add the ice and kosher salt to the gallon size bag and set aside.
Add Duct tape to the seal for reinforcement, if desired.
Place the quart size bag in the gallon bag and seal well. You can also wrap a bath towel around the bag if it gets too cold for little hands. Now, shake, shake, shake for about 10 minutes.
Remove the quart size bag and cut the top off and enjoy right out of the bag with a spoon or in your favorite bowl with your favorite toppings!
