Picture of How to make Popcorn Ice Cream

I don't like popcorn, but I have a serious addiction to this!

Step 1: Make your popcorn and infuse it

I don't like popcorn. Can't stand the stuff, but in this form it's pretty darn good!).


  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • freshly popped corn (unsalted)

Make a big pot of popcorn, and infuse it for an hour or so in a mixture of the milk, cream, and sugar. Once infused, strain as you can - you do not want to waste even a drop!

Awesome recipe!!
Can you tell me a way to make it without the eggs?

Thanks Jasara, I think you can use soy lecithin instead of eggs, but I've never tried it. If you make it please let me know how it turns out?

Wow that sounds amazing? Do you think this method would work with other foods? I'm thinking of making donut flavored ice cream with this technique. Great 'Ible

I used to make a coffee and doughnut Icecream I would blend dougnouts and sweet white coffee together and freeze in a icecream machine

I think that's a great idea, and should work (going to try it next!)

Then feed the leftovers to your dog, or chickens, or make cereal for someone who doesn't mind the popcorn husks!

It never even crossed my mind - brilliant idea! Or even blending it and straining the husks out, and using that pulp in a bread or something?

Now you're talking! Perhaps a good base for a bread pudding type of custard dish?
