Buttered Popcorn Ice Cream

And for our last Ice Cream recipe celebrating this month, is Buttered Popcorn!
Yep you heard it, just like the Jelly Belly's Buttered Popcorn Jelly Bean, but in ice cream form.

Its really good, again that sweet 'n salty mix.

Buttered Popcorn Ice Cream
Recipe Adapted from Almost Bourdain

2.5 cups whole milk
1.5 cups heavy cream (aka whipping cream)
1 cup sugar
1 tsp Vanilla extract
*for added flavor, use butter flavoring such as Watkins
2 heaping cups of buttered popcorn (your choice! Either microwave or air/stove popped tossed with butter and salt)

1. Combine milk, cream,  sugar , vanilla and the popcorn in a heavy bottomed sauce pan. Heat until almost boiling and then remove from heat. Let rest for 30 minutes to infuse the popcorn flavor

2. Using a cheese cloth or a fine mesh strainer strain out the popcorn and discard.

3. Chill in refrigerator, then place in ice cream maker and proceed as directed. 


  1. oh yum! I need to get an ice cream maker!

  2. Yes, yes you do! It was really good. Reminded me of the good ole days traveling in Europe!
