Introduction: Galaxy Far Far Away Ice Cream: No Churning Required
This swirly ice cream is so delicious and easy to make. You can make it in all sorts of different flavors and colors to fit any occasion, so I opted to give it a Star Wars flair. Best of all, it takes very little effort as there's not churning or special appliances required.
2 cups heavy cream
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tbsp vanilla (or other flavoring of your choice)
container to freeze your ice cream in (I opted for a small pyrex dish, but Tupperware would work just as well, if not better since it has a lid.
bowl for each color
food coloring (gel colors tend to be bolder than the liquid)
melting candy in appropriate colors
small bowl for each color
Step 1: Whip Cream
Add two cups of heavy cream to a bowl and mix until hard peaks form.
Step 2: Fold in Flavor
Add a can of sweetened condensed milk and 1 Tbsp of vanilla (or other flavoring) and fold together. Be gentle. You don't want to destroy the fluffiness of the whipped cream.
Step 3: Add Colors
Split the mixture into bowls. Use a separate bowl for each color you're making. Add food coloring to each bowl and mix.
Step 4: Spoon Into Container
Drop spoonfuls of the first color throughout the bottom of a container. Add half of each of the other colors in the same way. Go back to the first color and the remaining mixture from each bowl.
Step 5: Finishing Touches
Giggle the container to flatten out the mixture in the container. Add sprinkles. Cover and freeze overnight.
Step 6: Candy Decorations
Add candy melts to small containers, one for each color. Follow the instructions on the candy melts to liquify. Spoon a small amount of candy into each mold. Tap the mold on the counter to flatten out the candy and fill then entire bottom. Place in the fridge for an hour or so to harden. Carefully remove the candy from the mold.
Step 7: Scoop and Enjoy
Scoop the ice cream, add sprinkles, place your candy decorations on top, and enjoy!
