Unicorn Ice Cream

Unicorn ice cream

I have to admit that I really enjoy the unicorn trend at the moment. If there’s a unicorn on a product package, I’ll probably buy it. Do I think it’s immature? No, I just enjoy filling my life with cute and positive things. So, as the weather has been quite grey here in the past weeks, I just had to try out this colourful and fun recipe! It’s a simple and quick vanilla ice cream recipe with a glittery rainbow twist 🙂

So, on to the recipe!

Unicorn ice cream: ingredients

What you need:

  1. 500ml / 2 cups heavy cream
  2. 400g sweetened condensed milk
  3. 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  4. pinch of salt
  5. food colouring
  6. sprinkles
  7. ice cream cups


Step 1:

Mix the condensed milk with the vanilla extract and a pinch of salt.

Step 2:

In a separate bowl, whisk the heavy cream until medium peaks form. Gently fold in the condensed milk.

Step 3:

Separate the mixture into bowls depending on the number of colours you would like to see in your ice cream.

Step 4:

Carefully add your food colouring to the bowls. Be careful not to add more than one or two drops at a time, as you don’t want to end up with bright instead of pastel colours.

Step 7:

Add the sprinkles!

Step 8:

Cover the bowl and freeze for about 8 hours.
