No-Churn Firecracker Ice Cream Recipe

There’s really not a lot to this red white and blue ice cream! It’s a fast way to make a delicious dessert that everyone is going to love. The flavor is fun, the look is awesome, and you don’t have to use an ice cream machine which is a total bonus!

My boys LOVE this recipe and I agree! I think that it’s probably one of my favorites to make during the summer months! I really enjoy using gel food coloring because I think that it adds such a vibrant color to the dessert! It may look a little bit different than the “traditional” ice cream that you’d buy at the store but this is what I love about it! This is one of my favorite 4th of July desserts!

What do you store homemade ice cream in?

Anything that is freezer-safe with a lid works! I make it in a cake pan or a loaf pan, but I’ll store it in an airtight glass container.
