How to make marble ice cream

- Based on your theme Get your edible food colors ( I know I said edible and food, I want to over emphasize it)

Easy Marble Ice cream
- 1 tub of vanilla ice cream I used my no churn vanilla ice cream
- Red food color
- Blue food color
- Divide ice cream into 3 portions
- Color 1 portion blue and the 2nd portion red
- Leave the 3rd portion as it is.
- In an ice cream bowl put the color free layer first then put the red colored ice cream on one side and the blue colored ice cream on the other
- With a plastic table knife or skewer, gently make an swirl (s-like movement) to slightly mix up the colors as seen in the process shots in the blog post.
- Be careful not to over mix so you don't ruin the colors
- Freeze ice cream for 4-8 hrs
- Enjoy with as is or with any topping of your choice.
- It is important to put the red and blue colors on opposite directions so that when you make your swirl the red and blue dint mix directly to create the color purple.
- Ice cream can lose its texture if melted and refrozen for this reason I prefer homemade ice cream either the no churn or ice cream maker version. If you must use store bought you have to act quickly. As soon as the melts to a soft serve consistency, mix in the colors and serve immediately
