Red Velvet Ice Cream [Keep Calm and Eat Ice Cream]
Have you been craving ice cream, then you should try this easy homemade Red Velvet Ice-cream. The best part is it can be prepared in minutes.

In this post, you get the ingredients and method of preparation.

Red Velvet Base Ingredients:

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon red food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Cream Cheese Ingredients:

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Prepare the Red Velvet Base:

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder and red food coloring until you have a smooth paste.
  • In a saucepan, combine the heavy cream, whole milk, granulated sugar, and the cocoa-red food coloring paste. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it’s warmed through and the sugar has dissolved. Do not boil.
  • Remove the saucepan from heat and stir in the vanilla extract and salt. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.

2. Prepare the Cream Cheese Swirl:

  • In a separate bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until it’s smooth and creamy.
  • Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract to the cream cheese and continue to beat until well combined. Set aside.

3. Combine and Chill:

  • Once the red velvet base has cooled, pour it into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions until it reaches a soft-serve consistency.

4. Layer and Swirl:

  • Transfer about half of the churned ice cream into a freezer-safe container. Spoon dollops of the cream cheese swirl over the ice cream.
  • Add the remaining ice cream on top and repeat with more dollops of the cream cheese swirl.
  • Use a butter knife or skewer to gently swirl the cream cheese mixture into the ice cream. Don’t overmix; you want distinct swirls.

5.  Freeze:

Cover the container with plastic wrap or a lid and place it in the freezer. Allow the ice cream to freeze for at least 4-6 hours, or until it’s firm.

6. Serve:

  • When ready to serve, let the ice cream sit at room temperature for a few minutes to soften slightly before scooping.
