How to Make Rainbow Ice Cream  

As prepared by Baker Peabody

You know how we love our rainbows here at Tablespoon...


...so when we saw this idea on Random Thoughts of a Supermom, we knew we had to make it! With a Tablespoon twist, of course… making the Rainbow Ice Cream into the shape of actual rainbows and add some whipped cream clouds.

The original idea used different flavored/colored gelatin to add the color. We kept it good old vanilla flavor and just punched up the colors using gel food coloring. The more color you want, the more food coloring you are going to use. As you can see, I definitely used quite a bit.

Go on and taste the rainbow.


How to Make Rainbow Ice Cream - wrap pan in plastic

Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap. This will help immensely with getting the ice cream out of the pan without having to put it into a warm water bath, which can cause the ice cream to melt.

 

How to Make Rainbow Ice Cream - mix in color

Take three scoops of ice cream and put them in a small bowl. Add a few drops of food coloring gel (the more you add, the more intense the color). Mix until the ice cream is colored and the gel is fully incorporated.

 

How to Make Rainbow Ice Cream - repeat for each layer

Start with the violet (purple) layer. Spread as evenly as possible into the bottom of the prepared pan. Place into freezer while you prepare the next color.

 

How to Make Rainbow Ice Cream - cover with wrap, put in freezer

Repeat this process with every color going violet, blue, green, yellow, orange, and red. When you reach the red layer, top with more plastic wrap and set in the freezer for four hours or overnight.

To remove the ice cream, start to lift on the plastic wrap. You might have to turn it over and tap it out a little to get it onto the cutting board.

 

How to Make Rainbow Ice Cream - slice the loaf

Slice the ice cream loaf.

 

How to Make Rainbow Ice Cream - use a cookie cutter to make rainbow shape

Using a cookie cutter, cut out the rainbows.

 

How To Make Rainbow Ice Cream - final

Add some whipped cream clouds and serve.
