How To Make Homemade Ice Cream In a Plastic Bag Science Experiment!

DIY ice cream in a plastic bag! Combine ingredients in a 1 quart plastic bag, seal and place in another 1 quart bag then seal. Place 1 quart bag mixture in a gallon size bag with ice and salt squeezing the air out. Shake for 7-8 minutes. Wear gloves and make sure to wrap a towel around the bag. It’s tiring for younger kids, so you may have to take turns shaking the bag. Thanks for watching and Please Subscribe! Supplies and ingredients below.

Things you need:
2 1 Quart size Ziploc
1 1 Gallon size Ziploc
4 c Cups ice
6 T. Salt or rock salt
1/2 Cup Milk (whole milk) or Heavy Cream for a creamy consistency.
1 T. Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Science Note: The freezing point of salt water is below 32 degrees, therefore adding it to the ice/water mixture lowers the temperature below 32 degrees which helps with partially freezing the cream, which is necessary in making ice cream
