Homemade Bubblegum Ice Cream. Cold, creamy ice cream flavored like bubblegum and loaded with colorful gumballs!

I’ve always loved going to get ice cream. There is definitely a difference between the ice cream from the ice cream parlor and the kind you buy in the tub at the market. Maybe it’s the feel of the ice cream parlors? It’s always cool and smells like sugar.

My favorite as a kid was the bubblegum ice cream. Always a fun blue color and loaded with gumballs! There was always the bonus of getting to chew the gum after the ice cream was gone too. This ice cream is so creamy and delicious. The ice cream itself is loaded with bubblegum flavor. Eating this reminds me of hot, sticky days as a child.

How to make Bubble Gum Ice Cream:

  1. Heat milk & bubble gum extract to a simmer. Or can use REAL bubblegum. Pink Bubblicious works great!
  2. In bowl whisk egg yolks and sugar.
  3. Temper eggs. By adding some of the warm milk and whisking together. Then add the egg mixture to milk.
  4. Cook until thickened while stirring.
  5. Stir in heavy cream.
  6. Chill completely. Either in ice bath for 20 minutes or cover and chill in refrigerator for 2 hours.
  7. Churn and add gumballs. After churning the ice cream will have a soft serve consistency. Cover and chill in the freezer for 2 hours before serving.

Are you supposed to eat the gum in the ice cream?

Swallowing gum is not harmful as many of us may have been told as kids. It’s really up to you what you do with the gumballs. Chew them as you eat the ice cream, spit it out, pluck the gumballs out before you eat, or maybe you just leave the gumballs out completely when you make the ice cream and enjoy bubble gum flavored ice cream without the gum.

Pro Tips:

  • Plan Ahead: when using a frozen bowl ice cream maker method, you will need to freeze the bowl for about 15 hours prior to making the ice cream. Make sure that you are following the directions specific to your ice cream maker.
  • Color: using eggs in this recipe gives a yellow hue to the ice cream, and if you are using real bubblegum, the pink color can mix with that. Adding food coloring combines with the natural colors of the cream mixture. It may take more food coloring to get the exact color you want.
  • Clean Up: when you are washing your pot from cooking the ice cream mixture and the bubblegum, you will probably find a small amount of bubblegum residue on your pot. Just turn on the cold water to give it a wash and it will come right off!

This recipe was initially published in 2014 when the only way to achieve the bubblegum flavor was infusing milk with actual bubblegum. Since then I’ve found Bubblegum extracts on the market that make it SO much easier to make this ice cream! Both methods for making this ice cream are now included in the recipe below.
