Make homemade ice cream recipe in red, white, and blue for a fun and festive 4th of July dessert! No ice cream maker is needed for this easy 3 ingredient no churn ice cream recipe.

Turn an easy homemade ice cream recipe in to a festive 4th of July dessert! Only 3 ingredients are needed to make this ice cream and it is made without an ice cream maker. No cook, no eggs - just a delicious vanilla ice cream!

It is no secret that I love homemade ice cream. And ever since discovering a homemade ice cream recipe to make ice cream without an ice cream maker a few years ago, I just can't stop making it!

Love peaches? Try homemade peach ice cream made with fresh peaches.  Want something new and fun? Honey Lavender Ice Cream recipe sounds weird but it's delicious!

I've had fun messing around with the flavor of the ice cream, but I'd never messed around with the colors. And since it's summer – I had to try red, white, and blue ice cream!

This is super easy to make!  And if you want to make different colors, have fun with it.

Red, White and Blue Homemade Ice Cream Recipe

Basically, make up a batch of homemade ice cream.  Whip the whipped cream and add in the sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla extract.

To make the three colors, pour 1/3 of the ice cream in to one bowl and another 1/3 into a third bowl. Dye one bowl red and one bowl blue.

No Churn Homemade Ice Cream

I like to use a Tovolo ice cream tub to freeze the ice cream.  That's the honey lavender ice cream in the Tovolo. But a wax paper lined bread loaf pan works, too.

Easy Homemade Ice Cream Recipe

Pour each individual of color ice cream next to each other in the pan.  You could probably swirl the colors, too, if you wanted to.

Cover the container and freeze until the ice cream is solid.
