Each time I make this ice cream, I have feelings of nostalgia. It reminds me of  birthdays, dance recitals, and simple summer outings. Any special occasion or sunny day was an excuse to get my favorite childhood ice cream. I never could get enough of it.

Each special occasion in my sister’s and my childhood was celebrated with a trip to Baskin Robbins where out of all the ice cream flavors, we inevitably both chose bubble gum ice cream in a waffle or sugar cone. It was such a special treat!

Having been in love with this creamy, cold, ice cream for years, I wanted to create a version I could make with my kids. I love watching them develop the same fond memories that I had growing up.

Bubble gum ice cream is essentially two special treats in one. It’s two of my favorite flavors, ice cream and coveted bubble gum, rolled into one perfect dessert (which we were rarely granted as children being daughters of a dental hygienist).

Ingredients and Substitutions

Bubble Gum Ice Cream is made with just four ingredients!

  • Heavy Cream – The foundation for this no churn ice cream that gives it it’s rich, creamy flavor.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk – This ingredient sweetens the ice cream.
  • Bubble Gum Flavor – A hint of bubble gum flavor. You can find it in your local craft store on online here.
  • Bubble Gum Balls – Classic gum balls are the basis for this sweet treat and add an array of colors. Over time, they also add to the bubble gum flavor. You can purchase the gum balls here to save a trip to the store. Bubblegum balls are easy to find at most retail stores including big box stores, drug stores, and grocery stores.

Variations

  • Food Coloring – Make pink or blue bubble gum ice cream by adding just add a few drops of red or blue food coloring. My girls are just as happy seeing little rainbow swirls from the gum balls.

How to Make Bubble Gum Ice Cream in 4 Easy Steps

  1. Whip – Beat the cream until stiff peaks form.
  2. Blend – Blend in sweetened condensed milk and bubble gum flavor.
  3. Fold – Fold in gum balls with a spatula to evenly distribute.
  4. Freeze – Pour the ice cream liquid in a ceramic loaf pan, cover and freeze.

The most difficult part is waiting until it’s frozen!

Tips

  • Ice Cream Maker – Use a traditional ice cream maker or a mixer attachment so it’s ready to enjoy right away!
  • Try adding a few drops of food coloring. Blue and pink tend to be the more popular colors.
  • Waffle cone or sugar cones are a favorite way to serve this ice cream but certainly no flavor will be lost if served in a bowl!
  • This can be made days in advance before you want to serve, but only needs three hours of freezer time if you’re in a hurry! (Try using mini loaf pans if you want it to freeze quicker).
