  • 4 cups of cold water
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp McCormick Raspberry Extract
  • 4-6 drops of McCormick Neon Blue Food Coloring or other color of your choice


  • In a large bowl, combine water and sugar and stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Add in McCormick Raspberry Extract and stir well. Follow with 4-6 drops of McCormick Food Coloring to achieve your desired color. Stir well. Pour into your ice cream maker (this recipe was tested in a 1 and 1/2 quart ice cream maker) and turn on and run according to ice cream maker package directions. Let run for approximately 20 minutes or until desired consistency is reached. Serve immediately.



Per the instructions that came with my ice cream maker, I freeze the ice cream drum for at least 24 hours prior to use. If I have room in my freezer, I actually store the drum there (empty) when not in use to allow it to be ready to use when I want to make ice cream or slushies.
