Easy Ice Cream in a Bag

Sharing is caring!

Great recipe for kids on a campout. Eat the ice cream right out of the bag or serve over homemade cobbler.


  • ¼ cup milk
  • ¼ cup half-and-half
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup ice cubes, or as needed
  • 3 tablespoons ice cream rock salt


Combine milk, half-and-half, sugar, and vanilla extract in a pint-size resealable plastic bag; seal tightly.

Put a scoop of ice, 3 tablespoons ice cream rock salt, and the bag containing the milk-cream mixture into a gallon-size resealable plastic bag; seal tightly.

Rock the bag back and forth (do not shake) until contents thicken into ice cream, about 10 minutes. Wipe salt from the top of the pint-size bag before opening to prevent salt from getting into the ice cream.
