I had NO IDEA that you could make your own ice cream with some ice, salt, and a couple of storage bags! No ice cream maker needed!
I can’t believe this works! It’s magic. And so👏darn👏fun👏
The best part…
My ice cream in a bag is plant-based with 50% less sugar than regular ice cream (12g vs. 28g per cup).
You gotta try this, it’s basically just “SHAKE & MAKE”…
3-Ingredient Ice Cream in a Bag
✨1 cup unsweetened plant milk
✨1 tablespoon sugar
✨1 teaspoon vanilla extract
✨Toppings: Dark chocolate chips, fresh fruit like berries, cherries or bananas, chopped nuts, unsweetened coconut flakes, or nut butter drizzle.
✨Salt: Any salt will work, but use kosher or rock salt if you have it. The larger crystals may chill ice cream more evenly for a better texture.
✨Milk: Use your favorite unsweetened plant milk like almond, coconut, cashew, or oat.
✨Sugar: Sugar or coconut sugar works better than other sweeteners like honey or maple syrup (discovered after many recipe tests!)
✨Gloves: The bag gets super cold when you’re shaking it so keep hands warm by using gloves, a towel, or oven mitts.
✨Leftovers: Make it right when you want to eat it. Leftovers don’t freeze well, they get too hard.
