Magical instant ice cream

Recipe by Chef Soomro Course: Summer family


Prep time

20 mins


  • Caster Sugar: 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • Semi Skimmed Milk: 300ml semi-skimmed milk
  • Ice: 2kg ice
  • Sprinkles: sprinkles
  • Food Colouring: food colouring of your choice
  • Vanilla Paste: 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • Rock Salt: 12 tbsp rock salt


  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.
