I thought wouldn’t it be cute to make DIY ice cream bowls made of ice. So, inspired by my DIY ice luminaries, which I made three weeks ago, I came up with an idea to make real ice ice cream cups! 😀
They’re so easy to make and look so beautiful! And they’re very inexpensive.
Edible ice bowls will turn your dessert into something really impressive!
Fill the DIY ice bowls with colorful ice cream or a cold dessert. Or use them as cool ice drinking glasses.
- large and small container
- tap water
Place the small container inside the large container, and weigh it down with some pebbles. Pour tap water between the containers up to 1cm/ 0.5 inch below the rim.
I used 3 forks to keep the small container centered.
You can also use homemade natural blue food coloring (made with red cabbage and baking soda) to dye the ice glass blue.
Put the containers in the freezer overnight, or outside if it’s cold enough. When the ice cups are frozen solid, pour warm water into the small container and around the outside of the large container.
Now fill the ice bowls with colorful ice cream.
I made homemade vegan ice cream colored with natural food coloring.
I made blackberry, raspberry and mango ice cream. The green ice cream is based on this Victorian green custard recipe. The lavender and blue ice cream is colored with my DIY natural blue food coloring (made with red cabbage and baking soda).
Red cabbage and spinach are just used as natural food coloring – the ice cream doesn’t taste like spinach and red cabbage! 😉
Don’t the ice bowls look beautiful? They turn ordinary ice cream into a special treat.
