Mermaid Ice Cream

Who's ready for some mermaid ice cream this summer??

Harper and Hayden came over to spend the day with me, and we made some special ice cream.

Don't you love how Harper decorated this batch?

Here she is busy decorating graham crackers with blue frosting to go along with our theme.

I think she's proud of her accomplishments, don't you?  A friend of mine shared this cute idea with me of using the frosting. fish crackers, "bubble" type sprinkles and mini fish that come with the frosting.  It kept Harper busy while her sister took a nap.  Harper said, "no thank you" when asked if she needed a nap!

Hayden just likes to play, and is not really interested yet in cooking!

My youngest son, shown with his little girls, who spent the night here,  celebrated his birthday over the weekend.  He requested a Creme Brulee cheesecake and sent me a recipe that he found.   He seemed to like it, and even four-year-old Harper, ate a slice. 

Yield: 8

Mermaid Ice Cream (no-churn)

This is another fun no-churn ice cream! I just can't tell you how rich and creamy this ice cream is, and so easy!!


  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • food coloring
  • sprinkles


How to cook Mermaid Ice Cream (no-churn)

  1. Whip the heavy cream in your mixer until stiff peaks form.
  2. Add the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla.
  3. Divide the mixture into several bowls.  We used four bowls, and colored one purple, one teal, one pink, and left some white. 
  4. Alternate the colors in a loaf pan or food safe container, and then swirl with a knife.
  5. Add the sprinkles  of your choice.
