  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream, (35% cream)
  • 1 (10-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon cotton candy extract
  • Red and blue food coloring
  • Sprinkles, optional


  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Whip the whipping cream for approximately 4 minutes until soft peaks form.
  • Stir in the vanilla, sweetened condensed milk, and cotton candy extract, and then split the mixture in half into two bowls.
  • Using your food coloring, dye one bowl of the ice cream pink and the other bowl light blue.
  • Pour 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.
  • Place a piece of cling wrap on top of the ice cream batter letting it rest right on top of the cream. Cover the whole pan with foil.
  • Freeze for 2 hours or overnight.
  • Scoop, top with sprinkles, and serve!


  • Lining the loaf pan with parchment paper prior to filling will make cleaning up much easier.
  • Chill your condensed milk, heavy whipping cream and loaf tin in the fridge before you start – it will make everything freeze more easily.
  • If you are using gel food coloring, you will need fewer drops to achieve the desired color than if you are using liquid food coloring.
  • Top with a little cotton candy for a fun party look.
  • Higher fat content ice cream melts quicker than the lower fat ice creams so have those cups or cones ready!
