  • 1 cup (225 ml) half and half
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) sugar

  • water
  • 1 quart-sized baggie that seals
  • 1 gallon-sized baggie that seals
  • mixing bowl
  • mixing spoon
  • duct tape
  • towel
  • Gather all the stuff needed.
  • In a bowl, mix 1 cup (225 ml) whole milk, 1 cup (225 ml) half and half, 1/2 tsp (2 ml) vanilla, and 1/2 cup (125 ml) sugar.
  • Pour the mixture into a quart-sized baggie.
  • Squeeze out the excess air and seal the baggie with duct tape so it doesn't leak.
  • Put the quart-sized baggie into the gallon-sized baggie and fill it in with ice, water, and about 1 cup (225 ml) coarse salt. Adding salt to the ice helps make the ice cream get colder, faster.
  • Squeeze the air out of the big baggie and seal it closed with duct tape so that the baggie won't leak.
  • Now, gently toss the baggie up and down for about 10 minutes. You can take turns with a friend. You should use a towel so that your hands don't freeze.
  • Cut a corner off of the quart-sized baggie and squeeze the ice cream out into a bowl.
  • Bon Appetit!
