Popcorn Gelato

Pop corn Gelato (home-made italian ice cream)



Hands up who does not like popcorn !

Surely no one …

I like it a lot, especially the hot ones that are just broken out especially at the cinema.

And it is just thinking about cinema, where the various “cronk” disturb the projected movie, that I wanted to try to create this gelato (ice cream) .

I ate popcorn gelato at the recent  Agugliano Gelato Festival , where two gelato masters from Canary Islands e literally surprised me with this unusual taste .

So, even if the idea is not mine and I have to give credit to the Canary Islands gelato (ice cream), the recipe is the result of hard work (!) ,  with many tests and calculations, but the result makes up for everything.

I recommend you to try it, because from the first spoonful it will leave you stunned , as has happened to all that have had the pleasure to taste it .

Below is my version of popcorn gelato (ice cream).


½ l. of milk
65 gr. of cream
125 gr. of sugar (if available,  replace 50 g. sucrose with dextrose)
10 gr. of milk powder
3 gr. of stabilizer
80 gr. salted popcorn (you can also use those in the bags)


Mix all dry ingredients together, add the liquids and mix well  then put the mix in a small saucepan and , over medium heat, bring it to 85 ° C with the help of a thermometer.

Let the emulsion cool down, then blend it with popcorn in a blender .

Sift the mix  through a sieve for a better taste  and  in the meanwhile turn the gelato  maker machine on.

Stir for about 30/40 min. or until you see a well mounted gelato.

Let stand for about 1 hour in the freezer.

You may have noticed that I have not added the usual pinch of salt since  the popcorn is already salted  and therefore it doesn’t seem necessary.

I garnished with  chocolate popcorn from a famous brand (the one with the “purple cow” so to speak!) …

Enjoy it!
