I'm often of the opinion that brightly-colored foods look unappetizing. (Remember the Heinz EZ Squirt Blastin' Green ketchup from 2003?) There are exceptions, though. Personally, I'm willing to budge on dessert!

10 Genius Ice Cream Hacks That Will Make Your Summer

  10 Genius Ice Cream Hacks That Will Make Your Summer From magic shells to malted shakes, these ice cream hacks are total game-changers. 2. Avoid Freezer Burn To save your ice cream from freezer burn, store it as deep into the freezer as you can get, never in the door. The opening and closing will cause your ice cream to melt and refreeze, which ruins the texture of the ice cream. Another handy hack: Store your pint upside-down. 3. Plug the Cone Growing up, my grandma always kept a box of sugar cones in her pantry, turning any average scoop of ice cream into a whole experience. Cones can make quite the mess—but not with this handy trick.


  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract, optional
  • 1 can (10 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • Blue food coloring
  • 10-12 mini Oreo cookies
  • 10-12 mini Chips Ahoy cookies


This recipe is as easy as it gets for homemade ice cream. Just follow the steps below from start to finish, and you'll have a bowl of blue, cookie-filled ice cream—and a group of happy kids—in no time.

Step 1: Whip the cream

Add your two cups of whipping cream to the bowl of a stand mixer and whisk on medium-low for up to 10 minutes, or until frothy peaks begin to form. Be careful not to overmix. If you're using vanilla extract, add it here.

Step 2: Add a pop of color

In a separate bowl, combine your can of condensed milk with as many drops of blue food coloring as desired and mix until evenly combined.

Let's Talk About Ice Cream: Storing, Scooping, and How Long It Really Lasts

  Let's Talk About Ice Cream: Storing, Scooping, and How Long It Really Lasts Wasted ice cream is a terrible thing. Where is the best part of the freezer to store ice cream? It turns out, all parts of the freezer were not created equally when it comes to storing ice cream. Mengel says you should always store your ice cream in the coldest part of your freezer. In general, this is away from the door, in the back. How can you make your ice cream last longer? Mengel says you can help your ice cream last longer and avoid freezer burn by covering it with plastic cling wrap or pressing wax paper to the surface of the ice cream before you put the lid back on.

Step 3: Combine your ingredients

Transfer your brightly colored condensed milk into the whipped cream bowl and stir just until the color is even. When you're done, take a spatula and scoop your mixture into a metal loaf pan.

Step 4: Add your cookies

Take your cookies and place them in the ice cream mixture. Use a knife or spoon to push some down further into the mixture than the others, and try to get them spread out as evenly as possible. When you're done, make sure to flatten the top of your mixture by spreading it evenly with the spatula.

Step 5: Freeze

Cover the pan tightly and pop it in the freezer overnight, or for at least six hours. Once it's frozen, grab an ice cream scoop, spoons and bowls—it's time to eat!
