Desserts - Phase 1 - Ziploc Ice Cream (Phases I and II)

Adapted from Low Carb Recipe Forum
(original used heavy cream! :yikes: )

1 tablespoon Splenda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup evaporated skim milk
6 tablespoons salt
3 cups ice
1 sandwich sized ziploc bag
1 gallon sized ziploc bag

In sandwich sized ziploc combine the sugar substitute, vanilla
extract, and milk. Seal the bag and shake slightly to mix
ingredients. In the gallon sized ziploc bag, add 3 cups of ice
(or fill half the bag with ice) and add 6 tablespoons of table salt.
Place the sealed sandwich sized bag into the gallon bag and seal
the gallon bag. Shake the entire contents for at least 4 minutes
(longer for harder ice cream). Once desired hardness has been achieved
remove smaller bag and rinse thoroughly with cold water (if you miss
this step you may wind up with salty ice cream)

This recipe makes about 1/2 cup of ice cream. Remember to count as a cup of skim milk.

I have a Cusinart ice cream maker. Can I use that instead of the ziploc bags?

Probably. Will it make a single serving? If not, adjust accordingly.

I used evaporated fat free milk. I had to shake a bit harder but it was YUMMY! Thanks for the recipe!

I know this may sound weird - but try substituting l/f or f/f buttermilk for the evaporated milk. It's surprisingly good-

I'm really not lazy....honestly, but I wanted to make this recipe without standing there shaking a bag for 4 I put the bag in the dryer on air dry with a towel and it worked!!! I would suggest doubling both ziplocks and putting in more towels as I had to wipe the dryer out from a litle whole in the ice bag...but that was easy!! I'm really not lazy!!! ;)

Ok I made this lastnight and used Blazens suggestion for the dryer Technique. Worked awesome. and tasted great! I know I will make this again soon. I bet you could add differnt flavoring too. Thanks!!

This looks great and I'd love to try it! Do you have any other nutritional info- especially calories on it? Thanks! Barb

Can you use normal skim milk, not the evaporated kind or will that ruin it?

01-12-2005, 02:48 PM
This is a great idea...but can you use something lke the DaVince SF syrups for flavoring?

How much evap. milk is that. The recipe just says 1/2. How did everyone figure out how much to use? Is that cup, can, tbsp, tsp?? Thanks for the help! :)

02-08-2005, 09:33 AM
Sorry. It should be a half cup of the evaporated milk. I'll edit the recipe.

Thanks for the quick response! I did it and it was great! I shared the recipe with another friend who is a carb counter and she was so excited she couldn't believe it. I did the dryer thing and it worked but I strongly recommend using good strong bags. :cool:

I think I'll try this with that concentrated liquid instant coffee, coffee ice cream is my fave.

07-12-2005, 02:34 AM
Yummm, what about adding some cocoa powder, 1 tsp of instant coffee and some sliced toasted almonds??!! Jamoca almond fudge ice cream...yumm!!

07-17-2005, 12:25 PM
Ohh...adding chocolate would be divine! either cocoa powder or sf chocolate syrup- i've also seen that sweet n low makes sf strawberry syrup. I'm going to have to try this- the great thing is that it's JUST ONE SERVING, which is good for those of us with a history of "portion distortion".

Wowwowwow! We had this for dessert tonight, and oh la la, it was perfect! I made mine vanilla, and it was nice and rich- even better than storebought! I loved it, and the portion was perfect- not too skimpy after a nice dinner. It satisfied my ice-cream-lover side for sure! It was fun to make (we too used the dryer technique). I added a teaspoon of cocoa powder to my dad's and stepmom's and it was delicious as well. We'll definately be doing this again, and the great news is, there's no leftovers or a big carton sitting around to tempt us. When we want it (though the cravings are gone) we have to make it! Loved it! Thanks!

So I just went back to Phase I this week and I've REALLY been missing my homemade pumpkin spice frappucinos (made w/ no-sugar-added vanilla ice cream). I used this recipe tonight and threw it in my Ninja w/ some pumpkin spice coffee...worked like a charm!!! It's thinner than my normal frappucino (I'm sure that could be solved by shaking an extra minute or so or even by just throwing it in the freezer a few minutes) but still provides the same taste. Awesome!!!

Omg this is the best thing EVER! I added chopped peaches after it was done. Made w double batch & my 2 yr old pretty much ate it all! I'd eat tbis everyday.

I've got to try this! And my jaw hit the floor when you mentioned the dryer! I want an ice cream machine so bad but until then I'll settle for plastic bags thankful that I've done homemade before or I'd definitely get salty ice cream.

Whoa, this is a great recipe! I don't know why I never saw this before. I am going to make this tomorrow, but I'll probably add some hershey's cocoa powder to it. I'm excited!

Edit: hahahha, love the dryer idea. I'll do that!
