  • 2 ½ cups whole milk
  • cups heavy cream
  • tsp bubblegum extract OR 1 package Bubblicious pink bubblegum
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4-6 drops of food coloring can use blue or pink, or can omit
  • 1 cup small mixed color gumballs


  • Pour milk, cream and bubblegum extract into a medium size saucepan and bring to a simmer, where the milk is bubbling along the edges of the saucepan.
  • In a small bowl combine the egg yolks with the sugar, stir together. Take 1/2 cup of the warmed milk and pour in a steady stream into the eggs while whisking to prevent curdling.
  • Add the egg mixture to the milk in the saucepan and continue cooking over medium, while whisking, for 5-7 minutes until the mixture is thickened.
  • Remove mixture from heat and pour into a large bowl over ice to chill for 20 minutes, or cover and place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours until chilled.
  • Once mixture is completely cooled, add to your ice cream mixer for churning.
  • Churn ice cream for about 15 minutes, add in the gumballs, continue to churn for another 5 minutes. The consistency will be soft. Place ice cream in a sealed container and freeze for about 2 hours prior to serving.


  • Food Coloring: can be omitted if needed
  • Gumballs: can be a choking hazard for young children, please use your discretion, these can be left out of the ice cream if needed.
  • Using REAL Bubblegum instead of Bubblegum extract: Follow Instructions above, omitting the bubblegum extract and adding real bubblegum into the milk. Bring to a simmer, while whisking, continue cooking for 15-20 minutes. The gum will dissolve, there will only be small pieces of it in the mixture. Continue with instructions above.
  • Simmering the gum can leave residue in the saucepan used. Use stainless steel pots to help with cleanup.
