This recipe makes 1 quart of rainbow-colored ice cream! Use the colors of your choice.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 drops red food coloring
  • 3 drops purple food coloring
  • 3 drops blue food coloring
  • 3 drops green food coloring
  • 3 tablespoons multicolored candy sprinkles, or to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place a freezer-safe glass or metal loaf pan in the freezer.
  2. 2 Combine heavy cream and vanilla extract in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on high speed until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in condensed milk.
  3. 3 Divide mixture among 4 bowls. Add one shade of food coloring to each bowl. Stir until food coloring is thoroughly mixed in.
  4. 4 Remove the loaf pan from the freezer. Add the colored mixtures a few scoops at a time, alternating colors and layering them over each other, until loaf pan is full. Drag a butter knife through the entire mixture 2 to 3 times to swirl colors together. Top with sprinkles.
  5. 5 Cover the loaf pan with plastic wrap and freeze until ice cream is firm, 5 to 6 hours.

  1. This was so colorful and fun! I'm sure it would be a hit at a kids' birthday party. I found it too sweet for my taste but the texture was really nice and smooth.
