Homemade Unicorn Ice Cream


For the longest time I have been wanting to make a homemade ice cream. When I was at Le Cordon Bleu I was taught how to make it, but it was sort of a process. Since Sophia is here..there…and everywhere within a blink of an eye, quick treats are right up my alley.

This recipe can be found at Some of This and That blog. The author did hers as a galaxy theme. My inspiration was my new Alex and Ani Unicorn bracelet, when I think of Unicorns I think tons of colors! Plus, I thought that Sophia would enjoy all the bright colors!

What you need

2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream

1-8oz Can Sweetened Condensed Milk

1 Tbsp. Vanilla

Food Coloring (I prefer gel food coloring)

Hand Mixer or Standing Mixer

Casserole dish


  1. Whip the Heavy Whipping Cream on medium speed until you get soft..floppy peaks.
  2. Then add Sweetened Condensed Milk and Vanilla mix it up, until incorporated.
  3. Separate ice cream into separate bowls and color with food coloring, mix well.
  4. Combine each color into a casserole dish or a large container and free for at least 6 hours or overnight. Do not over mix the colors.

My Process


Whipping up my Heavy Whipping Cream


A nice floppy peak, it should take not more than 2 to 3 minutes on medium speed…make sure to check it! I can’t stress that enough.


Add your Sweetened Condensed Milk & Vanilla. Grab a spatula and scrap the sides to make sure everything is incorporated.


Here are the colors I chose!


The pink was my base…


I used a kabob stick to swirl all my colors around. Then I used the handle of a spoon as well, but do not over mix.Topped mine with Sprinkles. I also put mine in the freezer for about 7 hours covered in foil.


The finished product! The sprinkles are from Sweetapolita Sprinkle Shop called Carousel.


I am in love!



So much fun!!

What I love most about this ice cream is that it tastes so good and ultra easy to make. You can personalize it to!

This is definitely a keeper, I may try to make some for Sophia’s Birthday Party!

If you were to make it, what colors would you do? Or theme?
