A friend of mine introduced me to Yogurtland last summer which is a very cool self serve frozen yogurt place. They have a variety of awesome flavors such as brownie batter, coconut, passionfruit, peanut butter, chocolate hazelnut, oatmeal cookie, etc. I usually get a couple of flavors and one of my staples is red velvet cake batter. Once you serve yourself rhe frozen yogurt there is a wide variety of toppings as well as Ghiradelli chocolate and caramel sauces and then you pay by the ounce. I totally love Yogurtland!
Inspired by the red velvet cake batter frozen yogurt, I decided to make a Red Velvet Ice Cream. This is the recipe I threw together! I hope you enjoy!
Red Velvet Ice Cream
2 1/2  Cups Heavy Cream
1 Cup Whole Milk
1 1/3  Cup Granulated Sugar
4 Eggs or 1 Cup Liquid Eggs
1 1/4 Cup Red Velvet Cake Mix
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1.)    On medium heat whisk together heavy cream, milk, and sugar. Watching carefully add in the eggs and stir constantly to ensure eggs mix smoothly in and not cook at the bottom of the pan. (I like to use a whisk and a spatula.)
2.)    Whisk in red velvet cake mix. Stir and allow mixture to thicken slightly then remove from heat. Pour into a container and stir in vanilla.
3.)    Place in the refrigerator and allow to completely cool.
4.)    Transfer to your ice cream maker and make as per directions on your maker.

I wanna go to that yogurt place! This ice cream looks delicious too. Would you have any idea off the top of your head how to adapt to make it without red velvet cake mix? That kind of mix isn't available here. Is the mix chocolate based like from-scratch red velvet, like maybe chocolate cake mix and a lot of red colouring would work?

Wow. I love red velvet cake. I've previously *red* (couldn't help it :-0) about brownies, cheesecake and cookies. Had no idea about the icecream! Thanks for sharing the recipe and beautiful photos. -Allie :)

Alex - I know it is similar to making a red velvet from scratch.....meaning that you would add some dutch pressed cocoa powder and red coloring. The ice cream already has the sugar so maybe I can try making it without the mix next time.

Sounds great! I have one of those ice cream attachments, but sadly, it sprung a leak this past summer. If I ever replace it, I'll have to try this recipe!

Oh no.....sorry to hear your ice cream bowl broke! I think about that sometimes and hope that never happens to me. I use mine often!

If I try this, I would make my own cake mix. There is no need to have baking powder in ice cream! I looks good, so possibly I might just have to try this!
