BubbleGumPeepsIceCream

Oh yeah, you read that right.

Give a pregnant girl some summer flavor Bubble Gum Peeps, and this is what she will come up with. I’m pretty proud of myself, actually, because this? Is GOOD.

I had no idea Peeps even have “summer flavors” until they contacted me about doing this sponsored post for them. Being pregnant, and very much a fan of sugar right now, I couldn’t turn them down

We just got an ice cream maker a few weeks ago, and I haven’t had much time to actually use it. This is only the 2nd batch of ice cream we’ve made, and it was SUPER simple.

I didn’t come up with this recipe entirely on my own. After a search for marshmallow ice cream recipes, I found this one from 52 Kitchen Adventures and based mine off of it since, after all, Peeps are marshmallows.

Strange little sugar-coated marshmallows.

2 cups whipping cream
2 cups half & half
7 rows (35) bubble gum Peeps (3.5 packages)
1 pkg. small gum balls

*optional- 2 teaspoons bubble gum extract

First, plop your Peeps into a large pan and add the half and half. Then melt over low-medium heat. Don’t walk away from this! Keep stirring.

Put the melted mixture in the refrigerator to cool off about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, whip your whipping cream until it thickens.

After your Peeps have cooled off, fold the mixture into your whipping cream.

Now, the Peeps do give a subtle bubble gum flavor, and the gum balls will enhance that, but if you want it to taste really bubble-gum-y, you can add 1 or 2 teaspoons of bubble gum extract. It’s a thing! You can get it on Amazon or at baking supply stores… not sure about your supermarket.

I made ours without it, and it tastes plenty bubble-gum-y to me, but I don’t think it would be bad with a little added in.

Pour your mixture into your ice cream maker, and let it churn per your machine’s directions. Ours needed about 30 minutes of churning, and then I poured it into a pan and let it set in the freezer overnight.

Warning: If you’re not quiet enough, your bed-head bedecked toddler will break out of her room and insist on “helping” you. Then she’ll ask for “gubble bum ice cream” for breakfast the next morning, and cry when you give her cereal instead.

Add your gum balls at the very end, giving them just a couple minutes of churning to get incorporated well into the ice cream.

  • There are so many fresh faces here, and I’m thrilled! My 15 month old is currently napping ON ME so I thought I’d use this as an opportunity to introduce myself and share more about Baby Rabies to you newcomers. 🤗 👋🏻 I’m Jill Krause, mom of 4 (nearly 10 year old son Kendall, 7 year old daughter Leyna, 4.5 year old son Lowell- we call him LoLo a lot, and 15 month old son Wallace). I’m married to Scott, my college sweetheart- MIZZOU 🐯 👶
Baby Rabies is what happens when your baby fever is incurable. And that’s what happened to me 11 years ago when I bought BabyRabies.com and decided to blog anonymously about my secret and sudden obsession with conceiving my first baby. 👬🤱 The logo is a play on a positive pregnancy test, but we love and embrace all kinds of families and caregivers around here, no matter how they came together. 💖
It is my greatest wish that this space is inclusive and supportive and uplifting, without feeling sanctimonious or void of humor. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We are always open to improving ourselves, but perfection is never the goal. 🏞
I’m currently traveling the country in an RV with my husband and 4 kids. We sold our dream house last year to find our dream life. We are documenting that at @happy.loud.life So if you see pictures pop up and wonder why we spend so much time in an RV or why our baby has, like, 4 outfits, or why we seem to go on a ton of vacations- that’s why. 😆 ❓
Are you new here? I’d love if you’d introduce yourself below! ✨
  • I could hug whoever invented the puddle jumper floaties. Kids have no idea the torture we endured with blow up floatie wings back in the day. I can still smell the plastic and hear the awful noise they made when you had to take them off after you got wet.
  • Spring training for summer starts now. 🌞
  • Pic unrelated, but it's a cute baby and the thing I want to tell you about is super relevant if you're into babies! Tonight is the countdown to make sure you name is in for the over $3000 in awesomeness that one lucky someone is going to get! Follow the link in our bio before midnight tonight to see what's up! 🙌🏻❤️⬅️
  • "And some people say they can’t go biking because they have too many kids. I guess 4 is the limit...for now! 😀" How awesome is this snapshot from @cabinfeverbus?
  • We are doing some RV improvements and have a giant roll of this reflective stuff laying around. New fav photo back drop 😆 Also,  Lowell is such a big kid these days. 😓 #loloyolo #wallaceaustin
  • Shout out to @siblingrevelryproject on this National Siblings Day. Photographer @ewmcguire celebrates and documents these incredible bonds all year long. Such a beautiful account to follow. ❤️ #siblingrevelryproject
  • This was my husband when he realized he didn’t get enough food for the week on his grocery run. I feel like my fellow #LitterOfChildren parents can relate, right? #ThingsParentsActuallySay
