Steps:

  1. Pour 1 cup of half and half into your small ziploc bag

  2. Add 1.5 tsp of vanilla extract and 1 tbsp of sugar to the same bag

  3. Seal the bag firmly and get as much excess air out as you can

  4. In the large ziploc bag, fill it about 3/4 full of ice

  5. Add 1/4 cup of salt with the ice

  6. Then put your small bag of the milk mixture in the large ziploc and seal it

  7. Begin shaking for about 6 minutes (you can wrap the bag with a towel since it will be really cold)

  8. Take the small bag out of the large bag
