How to make kool aid ice cream:

First, get a large mixing bowl out. Put all of the ingredients in the bowl and whisk together until the sugar and
Kool Aid is dissolved.

Second, pour the mixture into a shallow cake pan. We love these ice cream storage containers. Freeze for a couple of hours until the ice cream is mostly set. It normally takes about 2 hours.

Next, put the mixture into a mixing bowl and mix until it is very smooth. I use an electric mixer to do this.

Once everything is mixed, put the ice cream mixture back into the cake pan. Refreeze for another couple of hours until completely frozen. Normally it takes about 2-3 hours.

  • I love my stand mixer but a hand mixer will work too.
  • You need to use a shallow pan. If you use a pan that is too deep, the ice cream will take longer to set.
  • Don’t skip the step that requires the ice cream to be mixed. This helps the ice cream to have the right consistency.

Flavor ideas:

  • Blue Raspberry
  • Grape
  • Strawberry
  • Lemonade
  • Orange

  1. Wondering if the individual water flavor packets can be used instead of cool aid. They have a strawberry watermelon flavor I’d love to try with your recipe. Thanks for sharing! We made homemade ice cream when I was a kid. I only ever remember making one flavor, vanilla. Butter pecan is my favorite today. Used to be dark chocolate.
