Unicorn Ice Cream is magic on a cone! There’s nothing better on a hot day than rainbow ice cream that’s covered in star sprinkles and glitter!
Who needs a Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino when you can make this Unicorn Ice Cream at home?!
I’ve had this fascination with the idea of unicorn poop ever since I saw the cookies years ago! They’re everywhere and so stinkin’ cute! (ha!!) My friend Karyn even made unicorn poop candy bark! But after seeing the squatty potty video, I knew I had to make unicorn poop ice cream someday. And today is that day!
This is is your standard vanilla ice cream made fabulous with a little food coloring, a lot of glitter, and star sprinkles all over the place! My kids freaked out for this stuff. I mean seriously, can’t you just imagine the princess cake this ice cream goes with. I like to live vicariously through my friends that have girls. You can even get the kids involved in making this ice cream by having them mix up the colors and add the sprinkles & glitter. They’ll l-o-v-e it!

Unicorn Ice Cream
- 2 cups whipping cream
- One 14-ouce can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Gel food coloring:
- Electric Blue
- Electric Green
- Egg Yellow
- Star Sprinkles
- Purple Disco Dust optional
- Green Disco Dust optional
In a large mixing bowl, beat the whipping cream until medium peaks form.
Pour the can of sweetened condensed milk & vanilla into the whipped cream, and fold the whipped cream and condensed milk together until completely combined.
Separate the ice cream base into 5 bowls. Add 2-4 drops of food coloring to each bowl (1 color per bowl). Use a spoon to mix in the food coloring until it is evenly distributed in the ice cream base. You can add more food coloring as needed to reach your desired color.
Using a standard loaf pan, layer the ice cream. Place 1/2 of each color in the pan in big dollops. (I layered the blue, green, and purple first, and then the yellow and pink on top of that.) Then repeat the color layering.
Run a butter knife through the ice cream a few times in each direction to swirl the colors together. You don't want to completely mix the colors, just swirl them a bit.
Top the ice cream with star sprinkles and sprinkle with disco dust. Because everyone knows unicorns are glittery.
Cover the loaf pan with plastic wrap and freeze for 8 hours to overnight, or until the ice cream has set up.
Disco Dust is non-toxic and is intended for cake decorating. It's up to you if you feel comfortable using it in this ice cream. CK makes a line of edible glitter that could be substituted for the disco dust.
