Ice Cream

Ice Cream by Robert Barcenas Videography and Production by Mathew Martinez

Robert Barcenas, Accounting and Philosophy major at St. Mary’s University makes his favorite dessert, ice cream. In this video he  shows us how to make it in easy quick steps. Getting all the ingredients from the local food mart, you too can make ice cream in minutes with this quick and easy tutorial.


  • 2 Ziploc bags
  • 1 Large freezer bag
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 cup ice
  • 6 tbsp salt


Begin with sealing  1/2 a cup of milk, 1 tbsp of sugar,1/2 tsp of vanilla into one of the Ziploc bags, removing as much air as possible from the bag. Then double bag it in another Ziploc. Now place this double bag into the larger freezer bag, adding 4 cups of ice and 6 tbsp of salt (you won’t be eating the salt). Now after sealing the Ziploc bags and getting some gloves, shake up the bag. Shake the bag for a maximum of 8 minutes. You should be able to see the mixture thickening. Remove the smaller bag from inside the bigger bag and wipe it down to get rid of the excess salt on the outside. Pour it into a cup, grab a spoon and enjoy!
