Mum reveals how to make delicious unicorn ice cream using just five ingredients – and kids will love it

WE'VE been in lockdown for over a month – and to be honest, it feels like everyone else has somehow learnt a new skill while we've been busy binge-watching everything on Netflix.

That said, if anything is going to inspire us to start a lockdown passion project – it's unicorn ice cream which looks (almost) too good to eat.

Posting on the Facebook group Budget Friendly Meals Australia, one mum revealed her five-ingredient method for making the pastel-coloured desert.

And the best part is, you don't even need an ice cream maker to recreate it at home.

She explained: "I used 5 cups of cream, 3 cans of condensed milk, a lil bit of sugar and some vanilla essence."

To start with, the mum whipped the cream, sugar and vanilla together in a bowl until they began forming soft peaks.

After this, she added the condensed milk and separated the mixture into different bowls before adding food colouring.

And although you can pick any colour you like (or whatever you can find in the supermarket), the mum kept it kid-friendly with light pink, yellow, blue and green.

After adding a generous amount of sprinkles to the top, she then decanted the mixture into a freezer-safe container and left it to set in the freezer overnight.

And let's just say, her homemade ice cream looks better than any store-bought versions we've EVER had.
