Rainbow ICE CREAM - Grandma's recipe

Monday, August 08, 2016
Hi everyone! :) I hope you are spending these hot summer days cooling off on some beautiful exotic beach or maybe having a picnic on a lovely green meadow. :)

In case you are stuck at home and in need for some colorful summer vibes and a tasty refreshment, I have just the recipe for you. Grandma's homemade ice cream with a colorful rainbow twist. Yummy! : D



You will need:

  * 6 eggs
  6 tablespoons of sugar
  200g of instant whipped cream powder
  * 400ml of milk
  * 1 cup of sour cream
  * 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  * 100g of ground hazelnut


* Mix the eggs and the sugar with an electric mixer. Mix for at least 10 minutes, the mixture should become big and fluffy :)
* In another bowl, mix whipped cream powder with milk, just like it says on the bag.
* Combine the two mixtures, stir them gently. :)
* Add the sour cream and vanilla.
* Finally, add the ground hazelnut.
* The mixture is now ready, put it in the freezer for a couple of hours.
Enjoy. :)


Preparation of the ice cream mixture remains the same, the difference is only in these three details:

* When buying whipped cream, get the white one. Colors will mix better in white.

* I didn't add hazelnuts this time, so I could have the colors I wanted, but that does not mean that you can't use them if you want. :)

* You will need food coloring.

Mixing colors:

* When you prepare the ice cream mixture, divide it into as many bowls as the number of colors that you want your ice cream to have.

* Each bowl of ice cream should have it's own spoon, because you don't want to mix different colors with the same spoon. :)

* Take a bottle with the edible color you selected and pour a few drops in a bowl of ice cream. Stir. Be sure you have mixed it up evenly so you can see the color that you got before you continue adding more color. Continue in the same manner until you get the color you want.

* Do the same with all the colors. Each color has it's own bowl.

* It's time to slowly freeze the ice cream. I chose small jars, so each of them can be served as one portion. Jars are great because you can see all the pretty colors through them. So, pour the first color on the bottom of each jar and put the jars in the freezer for an hour.

* Add one color in the jar every hour. Order of colors can be the same in all the jars but my suggestion is that you mix things up, so each ice cream serving will be unique.

* You can turn up your freezer for the duration of the freezing process. Then you won't have to wait as much between the adding of the colors. Plus the ice cream will be tastier if it freezes faster.

* That's it! All that's left now is to add some decoration and the ice cream is ready to be served. This time I chose cheerful emoticons I use every day in my instagram posts, because I looove them! Also, they show all the emotions I feel about this ice cream - yummy, OMG and similar joys. : D

If you wand emojis in your ice cream, too, you can download free printable here. The file has my favorite emoticons in different sizes. :)

You can serve it in waffle cones, your favorite bowls or maybe even decorate a souffle or a pancake. It will definitely give special charm to your pancakes. :) Why make ordinary things when you can make extraordinary, right? :)

I have to admit, I felt like an ecstatic little girl while I was eating a rainbow that tastes like my grandma's ice cream. I was filled with emotions, the exact ones that my favorite emoticons show. :)

I hope you will make your own rainbow ice cream and that you will enjoy it as much as I did. :)
