  • 1 small freezer bag
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • Any flavoring(s) of your choice
  • Mix-ins such as chocolate chips, chopped strawberries, or crushed cookies (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 gallon-sized freezer bag
  • Ice


  1. In the small bag, combine milk, heavy cream, sugar, a pinch of salt, as well as your choice of flavoring(s) and optional mix-ins. For simple vanilla ice cream, just add vanilla extract instead.
