This unicorn ice cream is a "no-churn," which is good news, because it means you can whip up your very own batch in the comfort of your home.

This easy-to-follow recipe is provided by the food site Delish and requires a lot of bowls, food coloring, and of course, sprinkles (no ice cream concotion is complete without sprinkles!).

What you need:

  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • (1) 11-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 drops each assorted food coloring (Delish says to use pink, purple, green, blue, and yellow, but you know what? Go crazy with the colors!)
  • Sprinkles, for top (Delish says it's optional, but you know they are a necessity.)

Steps to take:

  1. Whisk heavy cream in a large bowl using a hand mixer or a stand mixer until medium peaks form.
  2. Fold in the condensed milk and vanilla, then divide mixture into 5 bowls (it has to be 5!).
  3. Add the food coloring to each bowl and stir.
  4. Layer the colors in a loaf pan
  5. Smooth the top and swirl the colors using a knife (Use 4 to 5 swirls so the colors don't turn muddy. You want colorful swirls, not muck.)
  6. Top with sprinkles (go crazy!) and put in the freezer for 5 hours or until firm.
  7. Remove from freezer and let soften for about 5 to 10 minutes.

It's a lot of steps and the wait is grueling, but when you get this as a result, it's all worth it!
