Insert the pint-size bag filled with ingredients into the bag of ice and salt. Seal the gallon-size ziplock bag. If the bag begins to leak, don’t hesitate double bagging it to reduce the mess

Shake the bag for 5-10 minutes until the ice cream mixture begins to harden. Feel the small bag to determine the consistency of your ice cream. Once satisfied with the consistency, remove the small bag from the bag of ice.

Step 5 :- Enjoy !!

Open the small zip-lock bag and add any desired mixins that you want. I added raspberries to mine. Feel free to eat the ice cream right out of the bag or, if you prefer, scoop it into a bowl.

Enjoy!
