If you can't find Left Field Farms Creamer

  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract


  • To get started you'll take a gallon size Ziploc bag and fill halfway with ice. Add 1/2 cup of rock salt to ice. Mix it together well and set aside. 
  • Next you'll take 1 cup of Left Field Farms Coffee Cream and place it into a quart size Ziploc bag. Squeeze out the air and seal tightly.
  • Place the quart size bag into the gallon size bag and seal tightly. Place a towel around the Ziploc bag. It gets really cold and this helps to protect little hands. 
  • Have kids shake until mixture starts to harden. Could be up to 5 minutes.
  • Once ice cream mixture has hardened scoop it into a bowl or waffle bowl and have kids top with their favorite toppings.
