How To Make Ice Cream In A Plastic Bag

Violet is in Minneapolis, Minnesota with her aunt Valerie and they’re making ice cream in plastic bags!

They put the ice cream ingredients in a small resealable plastic bag, and ice and salt in a large resealable bag, then put the small bag into the large bag and shake, shake, shake!

Here is the basic recipe they use for vanilla ice cream:

1 cup half and half cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons sugar

Then a heaping tablespoon of cocoa powder can be added to make chocolate ice cream!

And if you’re trying this at home, you can add any flavor you like!

The salt is added to the ice in the large bag to lower the melting point of the ice, to keep it cold longer while you shake.

Watch as Violet, Valerie and Paula shake their way to delicious homemade ice cream without a fancy ice cream maker! Sugar, Olive and Daisy also make an appearance, playing themselves as adorable dogs : )
