Instant Ice Cream


Children and adult will love this - part recipe, part science experiment. Milk transforms into delicious colourful ice cream right in front of your eyes!

  1. Place the milk, sugar, vanilla and food colouring of your choice into a medium zip-seal bag, then place this in a second bag to double bag it.

  2. Squeeze the air out, close and secure with sticky tape if the seal isn’t strong.

  3. Tip the ice and salt into a large zip-seal bag, then place the medium bag containing the milk inside and seal well.

  4. You will need to keep the bag moving for 10-15 mins to freeze the milk. Gently throw the bag from hand to hand or take turns shaking it – it’s a good idea to wear gloves to keep your hands warm!

  5. Remove the ice-cream bag, open and scoop into bowls. Sprinkle with hundreds & thousands.
