Homemade Ice Cream

Homemade Ice Cream

It’s national ice cream month and we love ice cream! There’s nothing better on a hot summer day than a scoop of your favorite flavor. Ice cream is actually really easy to make at home and is a great activity for kids.


  • 3 Cups Ice cubes
  • 1 Cup Half and half
  • 1/3 Cup Kosher salt
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 Pint-size Ziplock bag
  • 1 Gallon-size Ziplock bag
  • Any of your favorite ice cream mixings


  • Combine half and half, sugar and vanilla extract in the pint-size ziplock bag. Push out the excess air and seal.
  • Combine the ice and salt in the gallon-size ziplock bag.
  • Place the small bag inside the bigger bag and seal the bigger bag.
  • Shake vigorously for 10 minutes until ice cream has hardened.
  • Enjoy!


Make a variety of flavor by using different flavorings or extracts, as well as chocolate chips, nuts and other mixings.
