Making Black Ice Cream!

Hi! Obviously I had to try making this. I love ice cream (probably too much) and the colour black, so.
Having been unable to obtain black ice cream from anywhere, I had to try making it myself. Being a profoundly terrible cook/baker/everything, I used the easiest recipe I could find.

Watch me:


  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tin sweetened condensed milk
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Black gel food dye
  • Monin caramel flavour syrup
I whipped the cream until it was stiff with a stick mixer, but an electric beater would have been better. Then I poured the condensed milk onto it, the pinch of sea salt, and flavour syrup to taste. I folded it together carefully, before adding (what turned out to be) a generous amount of black gel food dye.

I found that whipping the mixture, instead of stirring, helped the colour to combine with the other ingredients better. After 24 hours this should have definitely been frozen, but thanks to my freezer being as asshole, the big reveal of my creation was a fail. The taste was alright, although it mostly tasted of condensed milk. 

In future, I would use a stronger flavouring agent, and perhaps activated charcoal in addition to food colouring to create a darker colour. I would also make sure the freezer door was closed properly! Bah!

'Til next time, thanks for visiting! Would you try black ice cream?


  1. try a bit of anise flavoring to it--black just NEEDS to be licorice-ish! And believe-it-or-not licorice/anise ice-cream is very good and refreshing!

  2. Gently fold the sour cream mixture into the whipped cream unless just combined here. Transfer the combo to a steel or glass loaf pan, duvet the highest with plastic wrap to avert ice crystals from forming and freeze for at least 12 hour or in a single day until organization. Optional: Paint the rim of the waffle cone with suitable for eating gold.
