How to Make Homemade Bubble Gum Ice Cream
You only need a few basic ingredients to make this homemade bubble gum ice cream plus a couple of unique items that make this dessert extra special. Like my other homemade no-churn ice cream recipes, you’ll need whipping cream, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract.
In addition, you’ll need bubble gum extract, food coloring, and bubble gum.
Step 1: Make the Cream
First, you need to whip the heavy cream to make whipping cream.
Then, pour in the sweetened condensed milk.
Fold together gently.
Step 2: Add the Extract and Color
Next, add the bubble gum extract. Just one or two drops will add a delicious dose of bubble gum flavor to the ice cream.
After the extract, add one or two drops of pink food coloring.
Mix in the food coloring until the color has been evenly integrated into the cream.
Finally, stir in bubble gum pieces. I used crushed gumball pieces for added color.
Step 3: Freeze
Finally, pour it into a freezer safe container.
Pop it in the freezer for at least five hours. When you’re ready to serve, let it sit out at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes to soften it up. Spoon into bowls and watch your kids gobble it up!
