No Churn Cotton Candy Ice Cream
The best homemade cotton candy flavored ice cream with no ice cream maker required! The flavor is perfect for any and all cotton candy lovers.
What specialty flavors do you think of when you go to the local ice cream parlor? I know growing up, I loved all the fun flavors like cotton candy or anything with bright colors.
Over the summer, I've taken my boys to go get ice cream for a special treat. Every single time, they have chosen cotton candy! This inspired me to create my very own right at home and without that huge ice cream maker.
But you won't believe the flavor of this ice cream until you try it! Trust me, you will want to try it and then proceed to eat all of it. I made this ice cream for my kids thinking I wouldn't care much for it but I truly LOVE this no churn recipe.
This no churn ice cream recipe comes together quickly and easily with just a few simple ingredients:
Heavy Whipping Cream: This is what gives the no churn ice cream the light texture. You'll want to whip it up for about 2-3 minutes until stiff peaks form. You can do this with a hand mixer or electric mixer.
Sweetened Condensed Milk: This adds the sweetness you need for the the most perfect homemade ice cream. You will slowly add this in as you stir lightly.
Vanilla Extract: This will give you the vanilla flavor you need for all homemade ice creams. It gives you the perfect vanilla base ice cream.
Cotton Candy Flavoring: This is what gives this no churn ice cream the PERFECT flavor. I opted to do 2 teaspoons of this flavoring. It isn't overpowering and is just the right amount for that cotton candy flavor.
Pink & Blue Food Coloring: This is totally optional, but if you want to add the look of cotton candy ice cream you will use some pink and blue food coloring. Split the mixture in half between two bowls and color one pink and the other blue. Go back and forth in adding this to the final baking dish before freezing so you get a great color combination within your ice cream.
Once you try this homemade no churn ice cream, you will be making it EVERY summer! And if you love cotton candy, try these Cotton Candy Sugar Cookies!
