Ingredients

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • red food coloring
  • yellow food coloring
  • blue food coloring

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, beat the heavy cream until it forms firm peaks.
  • Fold the whipped cream into the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract until combined.
  • Divide the mixture into 3 equal portions, and add to 3 bowls.
  • Add a few drips of one food coloring to one bowl. Mix until the ice cream mixture is fully colored. (The more coloring you add, the more intense the color.)
  • In a baking pan or loaf ban, scoop colored ice cream mixture alternately. Give a quick swirl to layer the colors. (Make sure not to over mix, or the colors will blend too much.)
  • Let it freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight.
  • Allow the ice cream to sit for a few minutes at room temperature before serving. You can wet the ice cream scoop and spoon it onto cones or into bowls.

Notes

  • You can add different flavors to each bowl of ice cream.  Use jello packs or a few drops of flavor extract. Make sure to do so slowly as it can become overpowering.
