How to make unicorn ice cream:

  • Step 1. Chill a loaf pan. Place a loaf pan in the freezer at least 30 minutes before you begin. 
  • Step 2. Chill the bowl and whisk. Place the bowl and whisk in the freezer at least 30 minutes before you begin. 
  • Step 3. Beat the whipping cream. Be sure whipping cream and condensed milk are very cold.  In a large bowl or stand mixer bowl, beat whipping cream until stiff peaks form. 
  • Step 4. Get out a separate bowl. In a medium bowl, stir together the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract until smooth. 
  • Step 5. Add the milk to the whipped cream. Gradually add milk mixture to whipping cream by gently folding into whipped cream. 
  • Step 6. Separate the mixture into bowls. Divide mixture evenly into 4 separate bowls. 
  • Step 7. Dye the mixture in each bowl. Dye each of the bowls pink, purple, blue and yellow with the food coloring.  
  • Step 8. Place dollops of the ice cream mixture into the pan. Remove the loaf pan from the freezer and add dollops of each of the colors of the mixture to fill the pan hallway through. 
  • Step 9. Alternate with sprinkles. Top with half of the sprinkles.  Then add more dollops of the colored mixture and the remaining sprinkles on top. 
  • Step 10. Freeze the mixture. Cover and freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight until the ice cream is firm. Overnight is best to ensure it is the right consistency.

    If you need to speed along the freezing time, you can split the ice cream between 2 containers.
  • Step 11. Serve and enjoy this treat. Then the unicorn ice cream is ready to serve and enjoy!

How to store:

You can leave the ice cream in the loaf pan. Just cover tightly with plastic wrap. We also suggest placing wax paper directly on top of the ice cream to prevent any ice crystals from forming.

This homemade ice cream is very soft and melts quicker than store bought ice cream. Do not take it out of the freezer until ready to scoop and serve.

How long will it last?

Homemade ice cream will last up to 2 months in the freezer.  After that, it won’t taste as fresh. We have never had any last this long as everyone eats if very quickly.

Ingredient substitutions and Additions

  • Vanilla Extract. This gives the flavor a subtle vanilla flavor. If you want to try other flavors of ice cream, try using lemon or orange extract. This will give it more of a creamsicle flavor.
  • Food coloring. You can try using natural food coloring but it will not be as bright and vibrant. We recommend using gel food coloring to make a vibrant color for the unicorn ice cream recipe. 
  • Loaf pan. This works great to freeze the ice cream and you probably already have one. You can also use containers especially made for ice cream if you prefer. Those usually have a lid which make it so handy.
  • Sprinkles. We used rainbow sprinkles but you can change the color of the sprinkles to match your theme.
