Homemade Thanksgiving Ice Cream


With Thanksgiving just days away…can you believe it? I mean, November is just flying right by. All I can think is…just slow down so we can all enjoy the holiday season a little bit longer.

With that being said; how about I tell you how to add a pop of color to your Thanksgiving table…with dessert of course!

If you are anything like me I enjoy ice cream with my Apple Pie, so this super easy homemade ice cream with be talk at your dessert table.

And the best part is…it’s so easy to make! All you need is 3 main ingredients…yes…let me repeat that…3 main ingredients!

What You Need:

2 Cups of Heavy Whipping Cream

1 08 oz Can Sweetened Condensed Milk

1 TBSP. Vanilla

1 TBSP. Food Coloring of your choice ( I used Wilton Gel food coloring)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, using a hand held mixer or stand mixer, beat  Heavy Whipping Cream on medium until soft peaks form.
  2. Then add your Sweetened Condensed Milk and Vanilla and mix by hand.
  3. Separate ice cream into separate bowls and color with food coloring.
  4. Combine into a large container; freeze for 4 to 6 hours before serving.


I used the white ice cream as the base, then I layered the different colors. When I was done I took a straw and swirled the different colors together. Do not over mix.

Back in the summer I made Homemade Unicorn Ice Cream using the same recipe. It will give you a step-by-step on how I layer my ice cream.


What are you bringing to the table for Thanksgiving?
