I have done this a few times when camping. People are amazed when I am setting there eating fresh ice cream.
1 cup milk, 2 tbls sugar, a little vanilla. Place that in a quart ziplock bag and seal.
In a gallon zip lock fill 1/4 way with ice add some small rock salt. Place the quart bag in the gallon bag and seal. Agitate fairly aggressively in the shade for ~10 minutes and you have ice cream. It won't be really hard, it's like the ice cream in a soft serve cone as to solidness.
