Best Homemade Ice Cream Recipe

Ice cream is a wonderful demonstration of what salt can do to ice. So, next time you need ice cream, make it yourself instead of buying it and have fun exploring salt and ice! Follow these simple steps to make your own ice cream in minutes any time you have a craving. Here is the best “ice cream in a bag” recipe we’ve used to make homemade ice cream.

Make your own ice cream


  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of cream
  • Chocolate topping (optional)
  • 3 large freezer bags
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • Crushed ice
  • Mixing bowl and spoon.

Step 1:  Add milk, cream and topping in bowl. Mix!

Step 5: You now have your own homemade ice cream. You can snip a hole in a corner of the bag and squeeze out the ice-cream into a bowl or cone or simply grab a spoon and start eating straight from the bag!
