Bubblegum Ice Cream

Bubblegum Ice Cream

Bubblegum flavored ice cream…yes, really!  This bubblegum flavored ice cream is “knock your sock’s off” yummy and will have your kid’s begging you for a second scoop!  This ice cream contains real cream to give you the utmost creamiest melt-in-your-mouth bite.  After the cream is cooked, it is steeped in chunks of pink bubblegum for a bit to create that great flavor.  After the bubblegum is strained, you will add and cook the rest of the ingredients.  After it is cooled down, it is churned in an ice cream maker and later those colorful chunks of gumballs are added.  If you are wondering, yes….you will be left with bubblegum to chew on after you eat your ice cream.  As a kid, could a flavor of ice cream get an better…especially if you are left with gum to chew on!

The flavor of homemade ice cream does not even compare to the store bought ice cream.  The last time I looked, the price of store bought premium ice cream is outrageous.  So, my answer is to make your own!  I bought an ice cream maker years ago and it has pretty much paid for itself.  To get the most value of my dollar for making homemade ice cream, I wait for cream to go on sale.

So, it was my son’s 8th birthday this last week (where has the time gone!).  He requested this bubblegum flavored ice cream along with a Pokemon cake to share with his friends.  These kids thought this was the best ice cream they had ever eaten!  Needless to say, there was no ice cream left by the time they were done with it.  Make this for your kids…they will thank you :-)

    I too love pink bubblegum ice cream and although I haven’t used it yet, I found the bubblegum flavoring through LorAnn flavor oils.
    http://www.lorannoils.com. I’m hoping that this flavoring tastes as good as it smells.

    The outcome is definately a creamy delicious ice cream. However the only problem was the powdery effect felt on the tongue most likely due to the bubblegum added. And yes I did strain the bubblegum with a sieve. So I wish someone could tell me how to get rid of that minor problem?

      You might try lining your sieve with cheesecloth. The gum will stick to that rather than your sieve. Let me know if try that :-)

      • Ruxana says

        Yes this time I did line my sieve… Actually with an old clean pillowcase I’d cut into a square! Too impatient to wait a few more days for the cheesecloth to arrive. It worked perfect! Now I wish I’d not ordered the cheesecloth!
        I put blue food colouring in mine because that’s the colour they use in the shops and that’s what attracts me to the ice cream! :)

        • Kristie says

          Wonderful idea!! I like the idea of coloring the ice cream too! The next time I make this, I am totally going to color it :-) Thanks for the idea and glad lining your sieve worked!
