How To Make Homemade Ice Cream In A Ziploc Bag?

The children asked me to make homemade ice cream with them during the week. Instead of buying a luxury ice cream maker, we opted for a scientific project to make our homemade ice cream in a Ziploc bag. The activity was very simple, fun and all the kids in the neighborhood participated in the fun.

The best thing about making homemade ice cream in a bag?


It keeps children busy for hours! The first step is the mixing of milk, sugar and vanilla in a Ziploc bag of 1 liter. Then place the Ziploc bag in a second bag the size of a quarter. Then fill a 1 gallon Ziploc bag with ice and salt before you put the quarter-size bag in the ice bag.

Finally, shake your children until the milk mixture is frozen. This takes about 5-10 minutes to freeze. I advise children to do this when the Ziploc bag explodes.

When all my children had prepared their homemade ice cream in a Ziploc bag, we had a large ice cream parlor in their home:

Step 1: add cream, sugar and vanilla to the medium sized Ziploc bag and combine the ingredients. Make sure you close the bag first.

Step 2: Place the ice in the larger Ziploc bag.

Step 3: Put the salt on the ice in the larger Ziploc bag.

Step 4: Place the middle bag with the cream mixture in the large bag on the ice and the salt and close the bag well.

Step 5: Shake and massage the bag for five to ten minutes or until the mixture reaches the consistency of the ice.

Step 6: You can wrap the bag in a tea towel or use oven gloves while you shake, because it can get pretty cold! It is also a good idea to do this part because water can drip out of the bag as the ice begins to melt.

Step 7: When you are done, remove the pack ice and wipe it off with a cloth to remove the salt from the outside of the bag.

Step 8: Now you have your own homemade ice cream. You can cut a hole in a corner of the bag and squeeze the ice into a bowl or cone or just grab a spoon and eat it straight out of the bag!

Summer is about relaxing mornings, exciting adventures close and far away, lots of water and lots of ice... sometimes twice a day! Now that we have an ice machine, it is relatively easy to make fresh sorbet, ice cream and other deep-frozen delicacies, although it usually takes at least an hour, without preparation time.

Would not it be nice to enjoy a fresh ice cream within 15 minutes without having to use a machine?


Earlier this week, while reading several magazines and newspapers, I released a recipe for children I had cut from drip sticks for homemade ice cream in a bag.

When I was growing up, my father and I spent a lot of time putting things together and examining how things work, so I thought I would try this experiment with my children. To be honest, I was not sure if it would work, but after reading an article about the science behind this simple method of making ice cream, I was completely convinced. My children, especially my son, were very enthusiastic about the idea of making ice cream in a bag.

To make the project even more exciting, I bought some nice ingredients, including spark, chocolate, M & M's, gummy bears and fresh fruit, and we had an improvised ice bar in our backyard. Probably one of the best things about this type of ice cream is that my son can now take almond milk in different flavors. I was surprised how good it was frozen!
