How to Make Homemade Ice Cream? The Easiest Method

Arina P Habich/Shutterstock.com

You will love that the homemade ice cream recipe is so yum and easy to make with just a few ingredients and without an ice cream machine at home.

Most cookbooks and magazine recipes expect you to have an ice cream maker at home, but you can mimic the churning effect of an ice cream machine by shaking or tossing the ingredients inside a sealed Ziplock bag or freezer bag.

The best part about this method is how quickly it comes together. In just 5-10 minutes, you can whip up a delicious batch of homemade ice cream.

An essential ingredient in this method is salt. So why do you need salt to make quick freeze ice cream?

When you mix salt with ice, it lowers the freezing point of the ice. Water freezes typically at 0°C, but a 20% salt solution freezes below -17°C. In this version, the ice cream solution is so cold that it makes it quick and easy to freeze your flavored milk (or cream) into ice cream.

Ingredients:

  • one cup of milk;
  • half tablespoons of powdered sugar;
  • half teaspoon vanilla (or any other flavors that you prefer);
  • 2 to 3 cups ice, crushed or cubed;
  • one-third cup sea or coarse salt;
  • one small 1-liter Ziplock freezer bag;
  • one Ziplock freshness bag of 3 liters.

Preparation:

  1. The preparation is very easy. After all, we are telling you about the easiest method to make homemade ice cream, right? First, add milk, vanilla, and powdered sugar to the small bag.
  2. Seal the bag tightly, taking care to squeeze out any air trapped inside the bag.
  3. Mix ice and salt in the 3-liter bag. Place the small bag inside the large bag and seal it tightly.
  4. Shake vigorously for about 5 minutes. After that, you can have fun swinging it around with friends, but you may need to wear winter gloves because the bag will get very cold.
  5. After the 5 minutes duration, the mixture you put into the small bag would have stiffened. Do not open these bags yet; set them aside on a napkin for a little while. Rearrange the ice cream in the larger bag so that it surrounds the smaller bag.
  6. Open them and take out the ice cream from inside the small bag. Serve immediately.
