Superman Ice Cream

My absolute favorite ice cream ever is Superman. If you don’t know what it is, it is a Michigan thing and it is red, blue, and yellow. I grew up eating this and then you move away from Michigan and it is hard to find. Kilwin’s luckily carries it so I am able to get my fix! My sister-in-law suggested I make it myself and I looked for days for a recipe and there was only 2. I picked the dairy free option because well technically I do have a dairy allergy and it looked better than the other recipe. Recipe Below!

Ingredients:

Blue (Blue Moon)

3 cups plain soy creamer (about 1 1/2 pints)

20 regular marshmallows (about 1/2 bag)

1/3 cup sugar

2 T. avocado oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

a pinch of nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon lemon oil

Blue food coloring

Red (Cherry)

3 cups plain soy creamer (about 1 1/2 pints)

20 regular marshmallows (about 1/2 bag)

1/3 cup sugar

2 T. avocado oil

1 t. vanilla

3 T. marachino cherry juice

Red food coloring

Yellow (Vanilla)

3 cups plain soy creamer (about 1 1/2 pints)

20 regular marshmallows (about 1/2 bag)

1/3 cup sugar

2 T. Avocado oil

1 T. vanilla

Yellow food coloring

Make each flavor individually with the following instructions:

1.) Put the marshmallows in a big microwave safe bowl

2.) Heat for 1 minute, until soft and puffy.

3.) Whisk the soft marshmallows until smooth, then slowly pour in 1 cup soy creamer and sugar.

4.) Microwave for another 3-5 minutes, stirring every so often, until the marshmallows are melted into the creamer.

5.) Add the remaining 2 cups of creamer, oil, flavorings and enough food coloring to do the job.

6.) Cool the mixture down in the freezer or refrigerator before pouring into an ice cream maker to freeze.

7.) Pour into a container to freeze in freezer.

It is easy to make, but it isn’t a quick recipe. I had to make this over two days. Since you have to make three separate batches and I only have one freezer bowl, I had to make sure there was plenty of time between batches so the bowl could re-freeze. It takes no time at all to make the mixture and my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker does the rest of the work. It is a very easy recipe with only a few ingredients.

Even though it is dairy free it is still creamy and doesn’t taste like most dairy free ice creams you buy at the store. It is really good and I’m so excited to have this in my freezer. I will put a disclaimer that this avocado oil business is expensive. The recipe I followed from Speedbumpkitchen.com says you can use canola oil which is way cheaper, but I wanted to follow the recipe she uses because if her kids like the ice cream, I knew I had a good chance of liking it too. I was right! It is delicious and creamy!
Enjoy!!
