PLASTIC BAGGIE ICECREAM no freezer needed really easy done it several times with my classes.Yes, it sounds dangerous and the potential for messes seems highly likely, but you'll be surprised at the good, "clean" fun you'll enjoy when you make ice cream.


1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon sugar
4 cups crushed ice
4 tablespoons salt
2quart size Zip-loc bags
1 gallon size Zip-loc freezer bag
a hand towel or gloves to keep fingers from freezing as well!

Mix the milk, vanilla and sugar together in one of the quart size bags. Seal tightly, allowing as little air to remain in the bag as possible. Too much air left inside may force the bag open during shaking. Place this bag inside the other quart size bag, again leaving as little air inside as possible and sealing well. By double-bagging, the risk of salt and ice leaking into the ice cream is minimized.Put the two bags inside the gallon size bag and fill the bag with ice, then sprinkle salt on top. Again let all the air escape and seal the bag.
Wrap the bag in the towel or put your gloves on, and shake and massage the bag, making sure the ice surrounds the cream mixture. Five to eight minutes is adequate time for the mixture to freeze into ice cream.

Freezer bags work best because they are thicker and less likely to develop small holes, allowing the bags to leak

I use ziplock bags and put them into a large freezer bag and seal with a rubber band. Definately use the two bag method. We tried one bag inside the large bag and some popped and salty icecream is disgusting

I use the cream and condensed milk one too, but about 500mls cream to half a can of condensed milk, depending how sweet you want it.You can add choc chips, sprinkles etc if you want to jazz it up.Very yum!

Put frozen bananas into a food processor and whizz, delicious.

I use 1 can condensed milk and 1 600ml bottle cream. Maple syrup stirred through is really nice. You can add any flavouring you like -essences, fruit, grated chocolate etc. You would need to make it first thing in the morning to have ready later in the afternoon as it does take a while to freeze. Maybe having the condensed milk cold would help, as would stirring the ice cream several times during freezing.
Good luck. this is the only ice cream we eat in our house now - easy to make, no preservatives etc.

Can't remembert the name of it but it is a book where she is writing about what it is like to be a writer and how she comes up with the ideas for her stories. (I think, I didn't hear the whgole story as I walked in part way through, it is a school reader.)

slaintewesties that looks to be a fantastic and innovative way to make icecream. I am very impressed. Thanks for sharing. I wonder if one could just go and buy some salted ice instead of using ice with salt added. It is colder than normal ice and takes longer to defrost. Should work faster as well.

I'm going to save that idea to impress the bigger kids at our favourite camping ground. Best thing is it can be made completely by hand with nothing but some plastic bags and a towel. Fantastic if you are in the wops.

you could always go and get some sea water and freeze it ... Ive never seen salted ice. Glad I could help.

buzzy110, Sep 2, 11:46pm
Lol slaintewesties, sea water doesn't actually freeze. Despite the best efforts of Mother Nature, all the frozen ice you see in the sea is made from fresh water. You find salt ice in shops that specialise in supplying tackle and bait to fishermen. It is much colder than normal ice.

Fairly sure you can just use ice and salt (We ahve done this with the Brownies and don't remember having to try and find salted ice.)

From NZWW website but I haven't tried yet.Hokey Pokey Ice Cream.

4 Tbsp sugar, 2 Tbsp golden syrup, 1 tsp Baking soda, 2 c (500ml) cream, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 can cond milk. Place sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan and stir constantly over a low heat until the mix comes to the boil. Boil for 5 min over a very gentle heat, stirring occasionally and making sure it doesn't burn. Remove pan from the heat and add the baking soda, quickly stirring until the mix froths.Immediately pour the hokey pokey onto a tray lined with baking paper and allow to cool. Once solid, break into rough chunks about 2 to 3cm long.Whip cream with the vanilla until peaks form when the beater is lifted from the bowl.Gently mix in cond milk and H.P pieces.Pour into a 2L ice cream container, cover tightly and freeze overnight or until firm.

There is an old school reading book about Margarety Mahy and how she used to make her own icecream because the boat only delivered to her once a week.I made it with my class once and it was easy and delicious.... damn, I can't remember what it was called!

liamjosh, Sep 3, 6:55am
Actually it was Joy Cowley, not Margaret Mahy and its called "70 kilometres from Ice Cream".
