  • Stand mixer, hand mixer, or blender


  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup (about ½ of a can) canned vanilla frosting cold
  • Pink food coloring
  • 1/3 cup Circus Animal Cookies coarsely chopped
  • Rainbow sprinkles for garnish


  • First, freeze your stand mixer bowl (or the bowl you'll use to mix with a hand mixer) for about 5-10 minutes or until chilled. Next, mix together the cold canned frosting and pink food coloring, coloring it to your desired shade of pink. Set aside.
  • Add the ice cream to the chilled bowl and affix your stand mixer with paddle attachment (or plug in your hand mixer). Whip the ice cream on medium-high speed for about 1 minute or until softened but still creamy and thick, scraping down the sides of the bowl if needed.
  • Add in the pink frosting and Circus Animal Cookies and beat or pulse the mixture for about 2-3 times to just barely incorporate it all together.
  • Pour or spoon the Blizzard into a cup. If still runny (can happen with the frosting) you can freeze for about 10-15 minutes for the perfect Blizzard-like consistency. Garnish with remaining cookies or sprinkles.
