Homemade bag ice cream

The kids made homemade ice cream from zipper bags!  
This was a fun and exciting treat for my kids.  Even the youngest could do this, with a little help from mom. 

What you need to gather for EACH serving you are making:

-3/4 cup half and half (next time I'm going to try using our kefir milk)

-1/4 cup whipping cream

-2-3tsp honey granules or sugar

-1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

-gallon zip bags

-quart zip bags


-rock salt 

We were making 3 servings, one for each of my kids.
First add the half and half, whipping cream, honey granules, vanilla into the quart zip bag and seal up tightly.
Next add fill gallon zip bag about half full of ice along with 1/2 cup rock salt.  Place the quart bag with ice cream ingredients into the gallon bag with ice. 
Seal tightly then shake, shake, shake! 
The kids hands were getting cold so I told them to hold the bag from the top and keep shaking! 
Don't stop now, we are almost there!
It took about 5 minutes to get a thick consistency, depending on how many times your kids stop, it might take a little bit longer for the shaking process.
Time for the was very yummy!
The kids thought it was so cool to eat from the bag.  They were quite messy toward the end so beware. :)
Want some?  
We added chocolate syrup to ours. You could add anything you like to change the flavor, strawberries, crushed Oreos, chocolate chips, etc. There are tons of possibilities!
