Easy, No-Churn Galaxy Ice Cream Recipe

This is an extremely simple ice cream recipe.

There are two main ingredients and no ice cream maker necessary.

What makes this treat unique are the colors and sprinkles.

If you plan to host a space-themed party, this ice cream will look great on the dessert table.

Yes, this is a recipe loaded with colors and sprinkles.

I’d only suggest it for a special intergalactic celebration.

What you need to make galaxy ice cream

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1, 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Wilton gel coloring in black, violet, royal blue, and pink
  • A variety of space-like sprinkles

All you have to do is mix the heavy whipping cream and vanilla until stiff peaks form.

Add sweetened condensed milk and whisk for another minute.

Separate the ice cream mixture into four bowls so you can color each one.

Use a larger bowl for the black coloring, so it’s even more space-like.

Drop blobs of the mixture into a loaf pan.

Have fun with the colors and layer them however you want.

Once your pan is full and tamped down, smooth the top with the back of a spoon.

Top with sprinkles and place the loaf pan into the freezer for 4-6 hours.

Serve in fun sundae dishes and top with more sprinkles.

Stand back and watch the far-out smiles fill the room.

This ice cream is very sweet. It’s about as sweet as it looks, so a tiny serving is all anyone needs.

I know it’s rare to eat the suggested 1/2 cup serving size of ice cream, but that’ll do with this galaxy ice cream!

If you make a lot of ice cream like I do, you might want to get this ice cream container instead of using a loaf pan.

The containers have lids and stack well in the freezer. I have two and I love them!
