Watermelon Bombe

This Bombe is made with 3 different ice creams, some food coloring and chocolate chips and is colored like a watermelon. Life-in-the-Lofthouse.com

  How cute and fun is this dessert! I saw it in a Taste of Home magazine I had saved from a few summers ago. I think it would be so fun to serve at a summer pool party or barbecue. Everyone will think you fussed big time over making such a cute dessert, but it really couldn’t be any easier to make.

  All you need is 3 different ice creams, some food coloring, chocolate chips and a freezer-safe bowl. Oh, and some time. Give yourself a day in advance to make it, because it really needs to freeze between each layer, and set overnight. My kids are going to love this when I serve it for dessert tonight! I can’t wait! : )

  4. 1 pint Strawberry ice cream, softened

  2. In a small bowl, combine pistachio ice cream (or whichever kind of green ice cream you’re using) and green food coloring. Quickly spread green ice cream over the bottom and up the sides to within 1/2 inch of the top of bowl. Freeze for 1 hour or until firm.

  4. In a small bowl, combine strawberry ice cream and red food coloring; stir in chocolate chips. Spoon into ice cream shell. Cover and freeze overnight.

  1. That is so cute! I think I will wait a while to make it though, since it SNOWED here in ND again yesterday & we still have snow on the ground today.

  2. Hi Holly, I told you on FB we did this for Destiny’s 6th birthday party, but what I failed to tell you is we don’t have pistachio ice cream fans, so we did lime sherbet, pineapple sherbet and strawberry sherbet instead. Same instructions, just minus the food coloring. It was really fresh and yummy! As a fellow foodie, I figured you could appreciate some secondary options! lol 🙂 Take care! Tonya

  3. Mmmmm Tonya, I think I would like your sherbet version better! My kids hated the pistachios! Thats the only part they wouldnt eat! lol Next time I’ll make it your way : )

  4. All I need is three flavors of ice cream? No, all I need is a party to go to! These is absolutely adorable. All I want to do is serve it to people and have them ooh and ahh over it. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  5. That’s so strange because I was JUST looking at this recipe on the Taste of Home website, and now I saw it on here! I think that means I’m supposed to make it 🙂
