Strawberry ice cream in a bag

8d39fdf5-daae-49b6-b244-faade3ddf9b2With all this sunshine we’ve been enjoying recently, there was only one recipe that we thought we should share with you all. Inspired by a video we shared on our Facebook page, this is a recipe for strawberry ice cream in a bag. Quick and fun, this is a great kitchen craft to do with kids with a delicious end result!


  • 250ml single cream
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons fresh strawberries, chopped
  • 4 scoops ice cubes
  • 4 tablespoons coarse salt


  1. In a litre size, resealable plastic bag, place the cream, sugar, vanilla extract and strawberries. Press the air out of the bag, seal it up and shake to combine.
  2. Place the bag with your mixture into a larger sized, resealable plastic bag. Add the ice and salt to the larger bag, press the air out and seal.
  3. Wrap the larger bag in a tea towel and shake continuously until the contents of the smaller bag start to thicken into soft ice cream. This should be about 5-10 minutes.
  4. Rinse the small bag quickly under cold water to wash off salt. Lay the ice cream filled bag on a flat surface and use a wooden spoon handle to push the ice cream down to the bottom corner. Snip off the corner and squeeze the ice cream into a bowl.

This is such a versatile recipe, as you can just remove the strawberries and use something else. Here are some ideas:

  • Add raspberries and raspberry coulis for raspberry ripple
  • Use flavourings like lemon or almond instead of vanilla
  • Replace the sugar with cocoa powder or use chocolate syrup
  • Make sorbet instead by using only fruit juice in the smaller bag
  • Add cookie pieces and chocolate chips for cookie dough ice cream

The possibilities are absolutely endless, so why not get experimenting?
