  • Fun Recipe

I have been wanting to do something fun for awhile. I know this unicorn phase is actually something to make that is fun. How do I know this? Well, I admit when I created my Unicorn Kisses Cocktail coming up with the concept was a lot of fun.

So could I do unicorn magic again? What would be different and fun that I could create? All these questions went through my mind.

I was browsing online trying to get inspiration for ice cream recipes that would not require an ice cream maker. I know many of these recipes are popular because I saw success with my Strawberry Moscato Sorbet. That recipe was made in a ziplock bag in the freezer.

I really wanted to do an ice cream. Then I saw something interesting. It was a no churn ice cream recipe. It only had a few ingredients. The secret ingredient was Kool-Aid. That is right Kool-Aid ice cream.

It was intriguing and simple this recipe I saw. That was when a light bulb lights up in my head. I could use that recipe as a base and do a unicorn ice cream version that is different.

I knew I had purple pearl dust and silver edible glitter stars left from the unicorn cocktail. Instead of mixing in the Kool-Aid into the ice cream why not swirl it and use two different packets so it is colorful. Use the purple pearl dust and the edible glitter to give it that magical feel.

I had to do the base recipe different if I was going to swirl the Kool-Aid. The answer was obvious, mix the milk and sugars together first. Another obstacle was what flavor Kool-Aids to use in this. The flavors not only had to make look “pretty” and unicorn-like but had to complement each other as well.

When I was at the store I was looking at the drink packets. I knew I wanted a pinkish red, and yes cherry did come to mind, I quickly decided on no for that. Why? I saw Strawberry Fin and the Blue Raspberry Lemonade. Colors and flavor were perfect for this Unicorn frozen treat.

It tart and sweet. Then throw in a dash of magic with that shimmer and stars.  This is the perfect warm weather treat. It is simply unicorn perfect!

  7. Like the Kool-Aids, simply swirl it in.
  8. Finally, top off with the edible glitter stars. Just slightly swirl them.
  9. Place the mix in the freezer and let it freeze for 8 hours to overnight.
  10. Scup it into some bowls and ENJOY
