  • 1 | Tablespoon of sugar
  • 1⁄2 | Teaspoon of vanilla or imitation vanilla
  • 1⁄3 | Cup of salt
  • Ice

Quick and easy 5-min shake and wait ice cream:

  1. Pour the milk, sugar, and vanilla into the smaller, quart-sized bag.
  2. Fill the gallon-sized bag 3/4 full of ice, then add the salt to the ice.
  3. Place the smaller bag inside the larger bag and close the seal. Keep this sealed tight as you don’t want leakage.
  4. Now the fun part, shake the bag hard until fully mixed for 5 minutes.
  5. Use cold water to clean the bag before opening it to keep the salt water from getting into your ice cream.
