  • 2 cups whipping cream 35% heavy cream
  • 1 10-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 pouch cotton candy-flavored frosting mix can use a couple drops of liquid cotton candy flavoring
  • Red and blue food dye
  • Sprinkles


  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper – unless you are using a glass container.
  • Whip the whipping cream for 4 minutes until it appears fluffy and cloud-like.
  • Stir in the vanilla, sweetened condensed milk, and frosting mix and then separate into two bowls.
  • Using your food dye, dye one bowl of the ice cream pink and the other bowl light blue.
  • Fold the pink ice cream into the loaf pan. Smooth down with a spoon or spatula.
  • Drop spoonfuls of the blue ice cream randomly over the pink ice cream, and then use the spoon to swirl it in.
  • Freeze for 2 hours or overnight.
  • Scoop and serve!


TIP: Chill your condensed milk, heavy whipping cream and loaf tin in the fridge before you start – it will make everything freeze more easily.
TIP: Lining the loaf pan with parchment paper prior to filling will make clean up much easier.
TIP: I love the swirl of pink and blue in this cotton candy ice cream and that generous hit of sprinkles after you’re done (and you can even mix the sprinkles in before you freeze the ice cream, but just expect a bit of color run-off).
TIP: Top with a little cotton candy for a fun party look.
TIP: Higher fat content ice cream melts quicker than the lower fat ice creams so have those cups or cones ready!
