June 8, 2020

I love Ice cream during the spring and summer months. Nothing better than enjoying some creamy, delicious, flavorful ice cream. Homemade is the best, and I love making it.

This recipe is not only super simple to make but colorful as well. Perfect for serving your kids for a party or just a summertime treat. Everyone will think you spent hours in the kitchen, when in fact you didn’t.

This ice cream recipe uses four ingredients: heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, sweetened condensed milk, and food coloring. You can whip this up in no time in your standing mixer and place it in a container to freeze overnight

Serve as is or with sprinkles, or in a waffle cone or waffle bowl. You can use different colors if you like. This delicious ice cream will taste amazing whatever colors you use. What is your favorite summer dessert? For more dessert recipes click here.
