    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 1
    1 c. skim milk
    2 tbsp. sugar
    2 tbsp. non-fat evaporated milk
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    1 quart-size resealable plastic bag
    1 gallon-size resealable plastic bag
    4 c. ice (crushed or cubes)
    ⅔ c. salt


    1. Combine milk, sugar, evaporated milk and vanilla in a 1-quart resealable plastic bag. Press out all the air and seal tightly. In a 1-gallon resealable plastic bag, combine the ice and salt.
    2. Add the sealed quart-sized bag to the gallon bag.
    3. Seal the gallon bag. Wrap in a towel, knead and shake for 5 to 7 minutes or until milk mixture is thickened to a soft-serve ice cream texture. Serve immediately.
    4. Variations:
    5. After the ice cream has been kneaded and prior to serving, stir in 1 tablespoon of mini chocolate chips.
    6. Substitute other flavorings for vanilla, such as 1/2 teaspoon mint, coconut or almond extract. These are a bit more “powerful” than vanilla, so start with 1/2 teaspoon and add more, if desired.
    7. Stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons Walden Farms no calorie chocolate syrup.
    8. Substitute non-fat Greek yogurt for the evaporated milk.
    9. Substitute soy, almond or coconut milk for skim milk. The mixture will be a little less thick.
    10. Substitute chocolate milk.
