  • 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.


  1. 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.
  2. 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
