  • ½ cup milk (1%-15% fat*), or ½ cup soy or coconut milk (for a non-dairy ice cream)
  • 1 Tbs. sugar
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • Food colouring (if desired)
  • Toppings for ice cream – chocolate chips, sprinkles, sauce, etc. (optional but recommended!)



  • 1 empty bowl/shallow cup
  • 2 sandwich-sized resealable bags
  • 1 large resealable bag
  • 4 cups ice (crushed is best)
  • 1/3 cup salt (coarse or kosher is best)
  • 1 spoon
  • Gloves/mittens or large cloth to hold the cold stuff (it’s surprisingly cold!)


*For a creamier texture, 10–15% fat is best. Less than 10% fat makes a delicious ice milk
