This No-Churn Vanilla Ice Cream with Rainbow Sprinkles recipe is a childhood favorite that never gets old. It has a texture like real soft-serve thanks to ingredients like cold cream, vanilla, sweetened condensed milk, and agave for sweetness.
Growing up, I always jumped at the opportunity to bring a melty Mr. Softey treat home from the ice cream truck on a hot summer day. One of my favorite treats has always been classic vanilla soft-serve ice cream with a thick coating of crunchy rainbow sprinkles.
These days, I don't often find myself running after the ice cream truck jingle. But I still have a hankering for sweet, creamy vanilla ice cream with rainbow sprinkles. That's why I decided to make my own, super-simple version f this childhood favorite. instead of refined sugar, my version is sweetened with agave. ABut it has the same light and airy texture I remember without any churning. Your freezer, not your arm, does the hard work for this ice cream recipe, and the results are beloved by kids and adults alike!
If you have a birthday celebration in your future, I highly recommend pairing your no-churn ice cream with a beautiful homemade vanilla cake with dairy-free vanilla buttercream frosting. It's a classic duo that never disappoints.
This is a great recipe to get little helpers active in the kitchen. My son loves helping make this creamy treat–almost as much as he loves eating it!
