Red Velvet Ice Cream

I just love ice cream (who doesn't?!) and while I'm definitely an Edy's fan, there is nothing like homemade ice cream.

We love the Funfetti Ice Cream I've made in the past, and I've always wanted to try it with other cake mixes. I was inspired by the red velvet box in the baking aisle and couldn't wait to try it.

The flavor wasn't really what I expected, but it was still so creamy and delicious. I brought it to my monthly girls' night, and it was the perfect end to an evening of food, wine, and great friends.

Side note: I just learned recently that placing plastic wrap on the surface of the ice cream is crucial in preventing freezer burn. I feel like everyone knew this except for me, but I figured I'd share in case there are one or two others out there in the dark. ;)

Red Velvet Ice Cream
adapted from
  • 4oz cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2/3 cup red velvet cake mix
Using a mixer, cream together the cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Slowly add the milk, cream, and vanilla; once all of that is incorporated, whisk in the cake mix. Pour into your ice cream maker and prepare according to manufacturer's directions.


  1. This looks delicious! It's time for me to get my ice cream bowl back in my freezer.

  2. Lauren, I just told my family I want an ice cream maker for Mother's Day. This looks DELICIOUS.
