Homemade IceCream Using 2 Bags!!! It really works! (gluten free, dairy free option, clean eating)

Youtube can be a wealth of information.  I often look for things to do with the kids on there,  craft, science type things.  I found this one, how to make icecream using 2 ziploc bags.  1 bigger size and one slightly smaller.  It really does work and the kids were impressed,  you get a good working out shaking the bag too!   So easy for the kids to do and they will be so proud of their ice cream creation.  Let your imagination go while with flavours and additions!!!     Check out the video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3-OAwhIvU0


Homemade Ice Cream using 2 bags

What you need.

2 ziploc bags (1 larger and 1 slightly smaller)

1-2 trays of ice cubes

6 Tbsp salt (I use rock salt)

Put ice and salt in larger bag.


In the smaller bag add:

1/2 cup milk of choice

2 Tbsp rice malt syrup (or you can use sugar or sweetener) I am sugar free but cant tolerate alot of sweeteners so use rice malt syrup

Either use 1/2 tsp vanilla for vanilla ice cream or 1 Tbsp cocoa for chocolate (or another flavoured extract like peppermint for choc mint or orange for a jaffa flavour etc)

You can then add choc chips etc if you wish.


Place milk, syrup and choice of flavour in the bag and seal,  place small milk bag into larger iced bag and shake shake shake for a good 10 minutes!  Take out milk bag and it should be thick, snip the corner and squeeze into a bowl.

Here, the kids and I made banana splits with our home made bagged chocolate icecream.  Yummy.  Kids had a ball making their own ice cream….oh and wrap bags in a tea towel while shaking or get your gloves on as it gets coooooooold!!!

Here’s Carlie’s creation
