Captain America Inspired Ice Cream ~ AKA: Patriotic Jello Swirl Ice Cream

The boys and I had such a blast creating our own Hulk Smash Ice Cream that we decided to take another favourite superhero and give him his own personalized flavour as well! Knowing that this one must be red, white and blue, we turned to our Jello Swirl ice cream recipe we used for Canada Day and altered it to use a berry blue and raspberry combo! Perfect!

I use a thin layer of powder, just enough to cover the cream and probably only use about half the package. You could use more if you wanted to, but I find this is plenty of flavour and colour and creates a nice swirl pattern.


To make the shield design on top I used a star shaped cookie cutter. I traced the design on a piece of paper and used the paper to cover the cookie cutter so no jello crystals got inside. Then I just shook the jello powder around the star shape using both red and blue. The cystals will soak in mostly, but a few will remain dry on top.


This ice cream is sure to be a hit with super hero fans, or just bring it along to your next Fourth of July picnic for a patriotic dish to impress the family!
