"Ziploc" Vanilla Ice Cream

1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Heavy Cream
6 tablespoons Table Salt
3 cups Ice
1 Sandwich Sized Ziploc Bag
1 Gallon Sized Ziploc Bag
No Ice Cream Maker Needed. It
really works, trust me!!
In the sandwich sized ziploc,
combine the sugar substitute,
vanilla extract and heavy cream. Seal the
bag and shake lightly to mix ingredients.
In the gallon sized ziploc bag, add 3
cups of ice (or fill half the bag
with ice)and add 6 tablespoons of
Place the sealed sandwich sized bag
into the gallon bag and seal the
gallon bag. Shake the entire
contents for at least 4 minutes
(shake longer for harder ice cream).
Once desired hardness has been
achieved, remove smaller baggie and
rinse throughly with cold water (if
you miss this step, you may wind up with
salty ice cream!)
Recipe makes about a 1/2 cup of ice cream.
I have doubled the recipe and it
still works well. I am also sure that
you can add additional ingredients
(cocoa powder, etc) to create different
